Lionel Messi is finally back on the scoresheet for Paris Saint-Germain.
Messi opened up the scoring for PSG in its Ligue 1 away fixture against OGC Nice on matchday 30. The goal came courtesy of Nuno Mendes, who dished off a key pass over to a waiting Messi in the penalty box during the first half of the contest.
All it took was a one-touch shot attempt from Messi for him to score a goal in a Ligue 1 fixture for the first time since PSG’s 4-2 win over Nantes in early March.
¡GOL DE LIONEL MESSI! 🔥🐐
Asiste Nuno Mendes y el campeón del mundo abre el marcador 🤩
