Summer blockbuster signing Lionel Messi finally scored his first league goal for PSG as they beat Nantes 3-1 at home. Football fans around the world had to wait long enough to witness the Argentine’s first goal in a PSG shirt. It came at a crucial time as PSG led a slim Nantes and the former Barcelona man scored to confirm three points for his side.
It took Messi 412 minutes in the tournament to score his first goal but it was well worth the wait. Messi received the ball in the middle of the pitch before dribbling a few yards, shifting his body inside and out for a low shot from outside the box. It will be a huge boost for Messi and also for PSG when they arrive in England midweek to face Manchester City in an important Champions League game.

PSG have just won three points after a late game against Nantes. Mbappe gave them the lead in the second minute of the game. However, things turned sour for Pochettino’s side after goalkeeper Keylor Navas was shown a direct red card for his reckless foul on striker Nantes in hopes of clearing the ball.
Randal Kolo Muani equalized just minutes after the goalkeeper was sent off. However, Lionel Messi saved PSG in the final 10 minutes when he hit Dennis Appiah’s own goal in a rather spectacular fashion. Soon after, Messi scored his first Ligue 1 goal for PSG, scoring a sublime goal from outside the box in the typical Lionel Messi fashion. PSG extended their lead to 13 points after a late win over Nantes.
