Under Mauricio Pochetino, Paris Saint-Germain have made significant strides towards winning their first Champions League trophy. The Ligue 1 giants were aiming to make it return to their glory after losing it to Lille last season. A better performance was expected from Pochetino following their failure to clinch a Champions League victory in their first encounter.
However, things did not turn out the way PSG had hoped, as they fell down to a Lukas Paqueta goal in the second half.
Messi gave everything he had to score his first PSG goal in his home debut for the club. Following a set piece, the Argentine almost had his golden opportunity as his ball bounced off the post and into the net.
However, Messi was highly angered by Pochetino's decision to remove him from the game after he put up an absolutely magnificent performance. He was dissatisfied with himself for failing to shake Pochetino's hand as he walked towards the bench.
Following the "Greatest Of All Time" debate with his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo, football fanatics are mounting a lot of pressures on Messi to start scoring in his new or else he will be considered a flop. Bear in mind that PSG signed him to help them win their first ever Champions League trophy, but the fact that Messi is under performing makes the coach sub him out in a match.
In my opinion, Messi will forever be greater than Ronaldo in the world of football, and he will still outscore him at the end of the season.
