The wait is over, Leo Messi's unleashed.

Lionel Messi got his first goal for Paris Saint-Germain, and his new club got their first success in quite a while League group stage on Tuesday, beating individual competitor Manchester City 2-0 on Matchday 2. After a helpless opener in a 1-1 draw at Club Brugge, and with Messi yet to record a help for his new group, it seemed like just a short time before they got their assertion execution and Messi got off the imprint. 

With Idrissa Gueye snatching the lead eight minutes in, PSG were in an agreeable situation for a large part of the principal half. In the subsequent half, City developed into the challenge and compromised consistently, particularly down the right. Furthermore, exactly when it seemed like an equalizer could be coming, Messi got free down the right, joined with Kylian Mbappe and completed expertly without settling the ball into the upper right corner. 

It was a merited outcome for a clinical PSG, who have turned to late champs lately. In spite of being out-shot 18-6 and not winning the clash of ownership, the hosts figured out how to a great extent contain the City assailants and get a touch of vengeance for last season's elimination rounds. 

The triumph moves PSG into the lead position in Group A with a 1-1-0 record, while City are in third at 1-0-1.

For such a sublime strike it was worth the wait for Messi fans. The Argentine showed gratitude to Mbappe for the assist.
