Messi Scores as PSG Win Champions Cup

Paris Saint Germain cruised to win the French Super Cup, beating FC Nantes in the process.

Lionel Messi opened the scoring with a well taken signature drive and finish before Neymar tucked in their second on the night.

Former Real Madrid defender, Sergio Ramos also got on the score sheet before Neymar got his second from the penalty spot, after Nantes were reduced to ten men, convincingly burying the Coupe de France Champions.

The Trophee Des Champions is new manager, Christophe Galtier’s first piece of silverware.

The league champions were without star man, Kylian Mbappe, however he wasn’t missed as Messi made sure of it. The Argentine put in arguably his best performance in a PSG shirt since joining.

Despite PSG racking up 85% possession, Nantes had the two best chances in the opening 20 minutes with Ludovic Blas and Nigerian, Moses Simon going close, but there was no surprise when Lionel Messi opened the scoring.

This is PSG’s 15th Trophee Des Champions.
