Lionel Messi scores a stunning goal outside the Paris Saint-Germain goal as Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and the Argentine are Champions League stars


Lionel Messi looks back on his sublime record as he scored a brilliant goal with the outside of his boot in an emphatic 7-2 win on Tuesday night.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar has been in dazzling form this season and has already matched his tally from the 2021/22 campaign.

He kicked the scoring in their Champions League group stage match with Maccabi Haifa in spectacular fashion.

With plenty of space in the box, Messi kicked the ball with the outside of his foot, around the defender and past the goalkeeper to score his third UCL goal of the season.

The PSG superstar trio were all shooting and all got on the scoresheet in the first half.

Kylian Mbappe hit a crisp curling shot into the top corner before Messi set Neymar up to make it a comfortable 3-0.

It is, of course, a match that PSG had to win easily against the Israeli minnows.

They recovered a goal late in the second half, however, when Abdoulaye Seck headed in from a dangerous free kick.

Messi then restored PSG’s three-goal lead, his 11th of the campaign. This matched his total for the entire 2021/22 campaign.

He is now the first player from Europe’s top five leagues to hit double-digits in goals (11) and assists (12) in all competitions this season.

In the second half, Seck added his second before the French club ran away with it.

Mbappe secured his brace with another fine effort, before Sean Goldberg netted an own goal and Carlos Soler completed the scoring.
