The debut of Lionel Messi in the Champions League is coming with a shirt that is not that of Barcelona, where the Orejona won four times. This week starts the new great challenge of conquering Europe with Paris Saint Germain, which could never be consecrated on a continental level. Leo rested the weekend after the matches with the Argentine national team and is ready for the visit to Bruges in Belgium.
Now, Messi barely played 20 minutes in his new club's shirt in the away game against Reims. Then, he traveled with the Argentine National Team to play the South American Qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and upon his return he was not called up for Saturday's game in which PSG thrashed Clermont without its main figures. Mauricio Pochettino preferred that he train and regain energy to be ten points for the Champions League.
PSG is one of the favorites to win a tournament that promises to be truly spectacular with several teams aspiring to be champions: Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich score in that race. In addition, you must never lose sight of Real Madrid and Liverpool.
The Parisian club has been trying to win the Orejona for years without success, and now it has incorporated footballers such as Messi, Sergio Ramos and Donnarumma with the illusion of being able to give the squad a definitive leap in the hierarchy. In addition, he retained Kylian Mbappé.
