Lionel Messi Finally Bags His First League Goal For PSG - And It's A Beauty

Lionel Messi was finally able to open his Ligue 1 account this afternoon, after scoring the type of goal that the Argentine has become synonymous with down the years.

Taking on Nantes at Parc Des Princes, Paris Saint-Germain knew that a win would take them back to the top of Ligue 1.

Incredibly, Mauricio Pochettino's side's had managed to win 12 of their 14 league games without Messi scoring or assisting once.

With just three minutes to go in this evening's match, his baron spell finally came to end - and in some style too.

Messi rounded out the win for the hosts, adding the third of PSG's three goals.

Watch the momentous strike for yourself, below.

The goal was savoured by plenty of fans on social media, even with the foggy conditions partially obscuring the camera's view of the goal.

As one user pointed out, Messi's first goal in Ligue 1, much like his first in the Champions League, was never going to be a mere tap in.

Others were less impressed with the feat, however...

And for some, the goal was a timely reminder of where Messi functions best on the pitch. So far, Pochettino has opted to play the 34-year-old on the wing, rather than central in a front three.
