Failure? Lionel Messi is once again in debt at PSG

Lionel Messi did not have his dream night at Parc des Princes, even though the team was finally able to clinch victory. In fact, he was replaced by Mauricio Pochettino.

Paris Saint Germain is still unable to join their Dream Team. This Sunday they won 2-1 against Lyon in a duel where Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappé and Di María started as starters, but the team led by Mauricio Pochettino seems to need more time to find operation.

In the first minutes it was noticed that La Pulga did not occupy the same position as in his last presentation. Unlike that time, when he started glued to the line, this time he was seen standing as a classic hitch, with the Brazilian on the left, Di María on the right and the Frenchman as the center-forward. Thus, he could be the mastermind of each attack.

In the first half, Leo had his chances and it wasn't given. The clearest was a free kick that broke the union of the stick and the crossbar. Before, the goalkeeper Lopes covered him a hand in hand after a great pass from Neymar. 

At 75 minutes, the fourth official raised the sign and indicated that Messi's debut in the Parc des Princes had come to an end and the number 30 left to make way for Hakimi. In a duel in which his performance was from highest to lowest, the Argentine had the clearest but could not score and still cannot celebrate with his new shirt.
