FRANCE | Argentina captain, Lionel Messi finally scored his first goal for Paris-Saint Germain when they beat Manchester City 2-0 in their UEFA Champions league Group A encounter on Tuesday.
Following a dissapointing opener for Mauricio Pochettino’s side in a 1-1 draw against Club Brugge, and a slow start for Messi in his new club, the French giants were looking to get a result against well organised Manchester City side at the Parc de Princes.
PSG took an early lead when Idrissa Gueye netted eight minutes into the game to put his side ahead. City came close to an equalizer when Bernado Silva struck the post following a wonderful save from Gianluigi Donnarumma, after denying Raheem Sterling from a close range header.
In the second half, Pep Guardiola’s charges continued to be a threat in front of goal, and just when the equalizer was looming, Messi combined with Kylian Mbappe in spectecular fashion to score his first goal for PSG, to help his side secure a 2-0 win.
The victory means that PSG moves top of the group, while City move down to third position with.
