At 35 years old, he continues to leave all his rivals breathless and, at the same time, astonishing PSG fans. The Argentine was differential in his team’s victory against Nantes. Highlighting something of Messi at this point is complicated because the Argentine has already done everything with a ball. However, this Saturday he shone again in the PSG shirt in the 3-0 win against Nantes. The goals were from , twice, and Nuno Mendes. The former Barcelona player has not seen a goal for three days when he put his grain of sand in the win against Lille (7-1). Yesterday he was only in charge of distributing the game.The two assists that Messi gave to broke a new record for the Argentine. There are already 18 assists this year and there is still a lot to play for in 2022. Without forgetting the World Cup in Qatar that will start next November and where Argentina is one of the big favorites. No other player in the top five European leagues has such an assist record. Neither Kevin de with Manchester City nor Luka Modric or Toni Kroos with Real Madrid. Only him. Messi only.
Rosario has started the course with a better taste in his mouth than a year ago because now he feels more like a leader on the field. His role is already comparable to the one he has in the Argentine National Team where he directs the game of the Albiceleste. Now at PSG his presence is identical. All his teammates are looking for him so that Messi is the one who makes that last pass . We must not forget his relationship with the goal, despite not adding a goal for three games, the Argentine has three in six days of Ligue 1 . Some pretty good figures since the top scorers of the Parisian team have seven, Neymar and Mbappé.
In the match against Nantes, the PSG player also became the only player to complete 24 dribbles in all of Ligue 1 by making nine in the same game. No one in the top five leagues has done that number of dribbles in the same game. Simply Messi. Less than 80 days before the start of the World Cup, the Argentine is at a superlative level and ready to lead his country in Qatar.
