Messi shines in the first round of the French League … with the number after 27 games

Paris Saint-Germain began the defense of the French League title with a convincing win over hosts Clermont with five unanswered goals in a match between the two on Saturday night.

Brazilian star Neymar opened the scoring already in the ninth minute, while his colleague Moroccan defender Ashraf Hakimi doubled in the 29th, while the Brazilian defender Marquinhos increased the advantage of the guests in the 38th minute of the first half.

Argentine star Lionel Messi ended the Parisian team’s quintet in the second half, in the 80th and 86th minutes of the match.

The brace is Messi’s third in a Paris Saint-Germain shirt after two goals against Leipzig and Club Brugge in the Champions League last season.

It is noteworthy that the 35-year-old Lionel Messi scored only 6 goals in 26 Ligue 1 matches last season, and the flea contract with the Parisian team expires at the end of the current season in the summer of 2023 with the possibility of an extension for a third season.
