In a 5-0 victory over Clermont at the Stade Gabriel Montpied on Saturday, Lionel Messi scored a sensational bicycle-kick goal as Paris Saint-Germain began their Ligue 1 title defense.

It took only nine minutes for them to get in front, as Messi brilliantly flicked the ball into Neymar’s path, who finished an excellent move after Messi flicked the ball into his path.

Midway through the first half, Hakimi scored a goal with a lightning counterattack, before Marquinhos headed Neymar’s free-kick into the goal.

The Argentine forward then came up with a fourth goal for Messi, before the Argentine forward finished off an excellent performance with a stunning bicycle kick goal, chesting a pass from Leandro Paredes in order to put the finishing touches on an outstanding performance.

Due to an injury to Kylian Mbappe, the third member of PSG’s star forward trio, PSG was without the third member of their star forward trio.

Vitinha, Hugo Ekitike and Nordi Mukiele made their Ligue 1 debuts for PSG under the new coach Christophe Galtier under the new regime.

During the match, Warren Zaire-Emery, who is 16 years, four months and 29 days of age, became the youngest player ever to feature for PSG in a competitive match when he made his debut.

I am very satisfied, first and foremost with the win,” Galtier told reporters after the game. “In addition to winning the game and scoring five goals, it is also important not to concede any chances and to maintain a high level throughout, even when the gaps were getting larger.

The way that the team expressed itself in attack, of course, was one of my favorite aspects of the match. The block also needs to put in a team effort to win back the ball when it is needed to put in a team effort.

The teams put a lot of effort in for one another, and putting in that kind of effort for teammates is something that we are really insisting on a lot in this league.

I have a very talented team with players who have a lot of talent, but what they need to do is play as a team and that must happen throughout the course of a match, and then throughout the entire season.

After Racing Strasbourg had a last gasp equalizer ruled out by Video Assistant Referees (VAR) in the match earlier in the day, Monaco won 2-1 at home to Toulouse.

After a 2-0 lead through Krepin Diatta and Sofiane Diop, Monaco pulled one back in the 65th minute through Habib Diallo in the first leg of the Champions League preliminary round at PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday.

In the second half of stoppage time, Diallo thought he had another goal when he headed home from close range, but his teammate Alexander Djiku was found to be offside as he made the assist, so the goal was ruled out and Monaco won.
