Messi makes his PSG debut; Mbappe brace wins the game for PSG

It was Kylian Mbappe who starred as PSG maintained their unbeaten start to the season by defeating Reims 2-0 on Sunday. Lionel Messi made his much-anticipated Ligue 1 debut for Paris St Germain on Sunday, but it was Kylian Mbappe who excelled.

Antoine Mbappe gave PSG a taste of what they would be losing out on if he left for Real Madrid, who had been interested in signing the France striker since Lionel Messi arrived on a two-year deal from Barcelona.

Because of the win, PSG now has a maximum of 12 points in the standings.

The Auguste Delaune stadium sold all 20,545 tickets for Messi’s appearance, and the supporters, who shouted his name throughout the game, were rewarded in the 66th minute when he came in to replace the disappointing Neymar.

Even yet, Mbappe delivered a magnificent performance, seemingly unconcerned by the transfer mania that engulfed his career.

Just two days before the window closed on January 31st, the 22-year-quickness old’s and sense of time made all the difference.

Angel Di Maria sent in a cross for Mbappe, who headed it in after 15 minutes.

A few minutes before halftime Reims put some pressure on PSG, with Moreto Cassama striking the crossbar with an incredible effort.

Marshall Munetsi appeared to have equalized for Reims five minutes into the second half, but his attempt was ruled off for offside.

After 57 minutes, Messi began to warm up, prompting cheers from the Reims fans, whom he saluted.

After Mbappe had increased PSG’s lead from Achraf Hakimi’s cross at the conclusion of a swift counterattack, they sang his name as he was ready to enter the pitch.

After winning the Copa America with Argentina on July 10, Mbappe joined Messi on the pitch. However, Messi wasn’t in the same condition as Mbappe.

A win was crucial for Messi’s debut, said PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino.

“He’s a calming influence on the squad.” Everyone on the team benefits from his enthusiasm.”

As well as during and after the game, the Reims defender Andrew Gravillon crossed Messi’s path twice.

“He’s a very amazing individual. He played in the Champions League last year, and now it’s a pleasure to have him in our league and a pleasure to push him,” remarked the Argentinian star.

For whatever reason, he didn’t let me have it when I went to visit him to collect his shirt for my brother. “Perhaps next time I’ll be more fortunate.”

It was an eventful day for the French champions, who overcame Montpellier 2-1 to begin their championship defense, and Anger, who surprised everyone by defeating Rennes to finish second with 10 points.
Yazici and David scored to give Lille its first win of the season in the Ligue 1 standings. After Junior Sambia was sent off late in the second half, Montpellier finished the game with 10 men.
