Soccer legend Lionel Messi scored his first goal with Paris Saint-Germain in the French championship this Saturday against Nantes, signing with one of his most common plays at 3-1 (87), in a duel in which he was Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas was sent off.

In a counterattack, Messi received in the right, outlined towards the center and placed a left-handed shot unattainable for the goalkeeper, a play repeated a thousand times in Barcelona and that was finally held in the Parc des Princes. "I had had occasions in the previous games. I really wanted to score. Fortunately we won. I am very happy to have scored my first goal in the championship”, Messi said at the end. 

On a cold and dark afternoon in the Parc des Princes, the ultras celebrated the 30th anniversary of ‘Virage Auteuil’ with a huge ration of flares, which made it difficult to see in the field and on television. The match served to see the progression of the ‘MNM’ -Messi, Neymar and Mbappé-, a trio that showed more understanding and complicity, four days after visiting Manchester City in a key match of the Champions League.
