The only scorer for PSG during his victory this Sunday evening in Ligue 1 against OL, Leo Messi shone. The Pulga now has the lead in the Argentine selection and does not hide it.
Leo Messi is having a thunderous start to the season in the colors of PSG. The seven-time Ballon d’Or returned with new intentions after a difficult previous exercise both sportingly and psychologically. Replaced in the heart of the game since the arrival of Christophe Galtier, Leo Messi delights, whether passing or finishing. In just 11 games played in all competitions with PSG since the start of the season, the former Barça player has already scored 6 goals and 8 assists. A very impressive record and which, like Neymar, can be explained by a few factors. First, Messi had time to digest his departure from Barça. Then, the Argentinian made a complete preparation with Paris. Finally, his positioning on the field highlights his strengths.
Messi, PSG in the background?
Leo Messi’s good form therefore delights PSG fans, but perhaps even more the Argentines. From next November, the Albiceleste will try to get their third star in Qatar. For Messi, this will be his last chance to lift the World Cup. For some observers, the beautiful form of the Pulga lies mainly in the fact that a World Cup is to be played. Some doubts remain for the rest of the season. And it’s not his last Instagram post that will prove the opposite.

After PSG’s victory against OL this Sunday evening, Messi accompanied his photo with the caption: “Important victory before the matches with the Argentine selection”. It didn’t take much to unleash Twitter and the Argentinian fans. For them, PSG comes second and its head is only with the Argentine selection. It is indeed quite surprising that, to celebrate an important victory against Lyon in Ligue 1, the Parisian number 30 is already turning to the matches of his national team. “There is nothing to do with this club, nothing new lol, the Parisians are lying to themselves” ; “I can’t wait to see what state Messi, Neymar & co will be in when the World Cup is over…” ; “He doesn’t care about PSG, he’s just waiting for the summer of 2023 to go to Barça mdrrr” or “The love story has not been made and will not be made. Probably difficult for him to accept being booed in February because of a project that has not worked for years…”, could we see on the social network at the blue bird. Currently in selection, Leo Messi and his teammates will face Honduras and Jamaica on September 24 and 28 for friendly matches.
