Lionel Messi scored for PSG in their 3-1 win vs. Maccabi Haifa as he broke a Champions League record.

Messi scored his first goal in the Champions League this season. The 35 year old has three goals and seven assists in Ligue 1 and now has one in the Champions League.

Kylian Mbappe would dribble inside the penalty area before passing the ball to Messi. He would control and score to draw PSG level.

With one goal to his name, Messi would also get an assist. He would play a pass into Kylian Mbappe as he would score to give PSG the 2-1 lead.

The Argentine also made Champions League history. He became the first player to ever score against 39 different teams, overtaking Cristian Ronaldo with his tally.

He has now also scored in 18 consecutive seasons in the Champions League.

  2. ENZO is the key to go. He has proved time and time again why he can be a great asset to the Argentina NT at Qatar. The way he forced himself as the heart of Benfica’s midfield in a span of few weeks is highly commendable and should be worthy enough for his inclusion to the National team. In my opinion, he resides on a different stratosphere to his compariot Palacios, who are both competing against each other to seal a spot for Qatar.

    However, I just can’t thank god enough with the set of quality players we are blessed with this term. VAMOS ARGENTINA

  3. Caught about 70mins from the Juv-Benfica game and I have to say that Enzo, Otamendi and Paredes all played very well. Enzo held up the ball very well and started the attack that led to Benfica’s first goal. He’s physically strong, hard working and has an eye for goal, although he needs to work on his long distance shooting because those 2 shots of his were nowhere near their target.
    Dimaria came on late but I couldn’t catch the last 20mins for the match, still my friend told me that Angel was quite superb when he came on and created 2-3 really good chances, so I’m very happy to hear that because Fideo is essential for the NT.

    As for Lio, well he’s doing well for PSG, he is far and away THE best playmaker in europe right now and his output for PSG has been excellent, Julian Laurens from ESPN wrote an article where he praised La pulga. I do have to say that Messi’s finishing has been wayward but it’s nothing to worry about because Argentina has the likes of Lautaro, Dybala and Julian who can finish chances if someone (namely europe’s best playmaker) can create those chances for them.

  4. 5 goals + 8 assists in 10 games for Messi overall. 6 goals + 9 assist counting pre season.

    His assist number is really going to the roof .

    He has 18 assists in just 23 games this calendar year while he usually reach that number after a whole season at Barca, around 15-18 assists in 30+ games.
