Lionel Messi and Neymar have picked up where they left off from Paris Saint-Germain’s 2022 Trophee des Champions Final win over Nantes.
In the early stages of PSG’s Ligue 1 season opener against Clermont Foot, Messi once again played the role of a playmaker for Neymar, dishing off a one-touch flick pass over to the Brazilian forward. Neymar took it from there, scoring PSG’s first goal of the new Ligue 1 campaign.

Neymar sure is aiming to prove doubters wrong about whether he can still be a top-class forward at PSG.
