UCL: Messi Scores First Goal For PSG Against Man City

Lionel Messi scored his first goal in a Paris Saint-Germain shirt in Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Manchester City.

Messi’s top-corner finish added to Idrissa Gueye’s first half goal as PSG moved top of Group A with the 2-0 win over last year’s runners up.

Pep Guardiola’s side hit the bar twice in the first half with Portugal playmaker Bernardo Silva failing to score two metres out with PSG goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma helplessly on the ground.

“The important thing was to win, against an immense opponent, one of the contenders for the trophy,” Messi told broadcaster Canal+.

“I had only played here (Parc des Princes) once, but little by little I’m adapting and integrating to the team,” he added.
