Messi leads PSG to a five-star victory.

Messi leads PSG to a five-star victory.

Lionel Messi scored a brace as Paris Saint-Germain defeated Clermont 5-0 in their Ligue 1 debut on Saturday.

While Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Pablo Sarabia formed a three-pronged attack for PSG without the injured Kylian Mbappe, Vitinha made his champions debut in the midfield.

After Messi flicked a pass from Sarabia's cross, the visitors got into gear right away, and Neymar gave them the lead in the ninth minute with a drive into the bottom corner.

Achraf Hakimi doubled the Parisians' advantage on minute 26 after breaking through in the box off a pass from Neymar following a counterattack. The Parisians continued to pose a threat.

Marquinhos made a late run and headed in a close-range header from Neymar's pass to put PSG out of reach in the last seconds of the opening period from a set-piece.
