PSG’s partial victory (2-0) over Montpelier in Ligue 1 was highlighted by Leo Messi’s brace at the Stade de la Mosson. The second ‘Flea’ arrived 20 minutes after starring in a fantastic solo performance.
The popular ‘Donatello,’ who had aided his Argentine teammate in the 1-0, received the ball in the right sector and passed to the Parisian team’s ’30’. The ‘Albiceleste’ footballer then took control of the ball, posed a threat to goalie Dimitry Bertaud, and inflated the netting.
As a result, Lionel Messi has 11 goals in 33 games this season (Ligue 1, UEFA Champions League and French Cup). Similarly, he has 13 assists, all of which have come in the local tournament.
With Ligue 1 under his belt, the ‘Flea’s next goal is to help the Argentine national side win the World Cup in Qatar. Then you’ll have to consider the Champions League’s upcoming edition.
PSG vs. Montpellier: this is how they arrive at the game
The ‘Tricolor’ comes into this match after losing (1-2) to Clermont, extending its losing record to seven games without a win in the local tournament. Despite recent results, the defeat is not complicated because it is in 14th place (43 points).
Montpellier, on the other hand, is looking for victories in the tournament’s closing stages. As a result, he wants to have the backing of his supporters in order to defeat the Parisian squad.
PSG, on the other hand, was named champion just a few weeks ago, but they have now drawn three consecutive games. The Parisian team is hoping to get back on the winning track. Coach Mauricio Pochettino spoke about the virtues of Montpellier before the encounter.
“What matters is that you are as competitive as possible.” We don’t often get the chance to play games without risk, but we want to project a positive image, be professional, and play the best football we can. That is something we must remember when we play Montpellier,” he said.
