For the first time since Paris Saint-Germain’s UEFA Champions League home group stage fixture against Club Brugge, Lionel Messi has notched a double.
In the early stages of PSG’s Ligue 1 away fixture against Montpellier, Kylian Mbappe once again played the role of a playmaker for Messi, as he dished off the assist-making pass to the Argentine to double the side’s lead. Messi rounded Montpellier goalkeeper Dimitry Bertaud with ease for his sixth goal of the Ligue 1 campaign.
¡GOL DE MESSI! 🤩
Doblete del argentino que pone 0️⃣ – 2️⃣ al PSG 🔥

This is just the performance that Messi needed in this league contest.
