Lionel Messi makes PSG debut as Kyian Mbappe steals the show

August 30, 2021

Lionel Messi made his highly-anticipated debut for Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday as Kylian Mbappe stole the show by scoring both goals in a 2-0 win against Reims in Ligue 1
Sunday’s away match against Reims crossed the 66th minute with PSG leading 2-0, when the team’s coach Mauricio Pochettino decided to replace Neymar with Messi.
Mbappe scored his first goal on 16 minutes with a header from close range after Angel Di Maria floated a ball into the box.
He scored the second goal as Achraf Hakimi sent a cross to the back post on 63 minutes where Mbappe was once again waiting to convert.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi will have to wait for his first goal with his new club, and his first start, which could come when PSG host Clermont in their next match on September 11.
