There are not many players in world football today who have continually delivered in finals as much as Lionel Messi has done so over the years. Just a month removed from recording a pair of assists in the Argentina national team’s 2022 Finalissima contest against Italy, Messi once again put out a keen performance in a final.
Messi scored a goal in PSG’s 2022 Trophee des Champions Final victory over Nantes. The early first half goal from the Argentine proved to be just enough for PSG, as it clinched a 4-0 win and also the first trophy win of the Christophe Galtier managerial era.
More so, Messi made notable history in the fixture, as he scored his 32nd career goal in finals, with 15 of them coming in domestic super cups.

Messi heads into the upcoming Ligue 1 season in keen form, which sure is needed for PSG after he scored a mere six total goals in last year’s campaign.
Messi and PSG will open up league play with a home fixture against Clermont Foot on Saturday.
