Football fans on social media were blown away by Lionel Messi’s goal which saw him and Kylian Mbappe combine brilliantly for a genuine Goal of the Season contender.
Messi continued his scintillating form this campaign as he scored one and provided two assists in Paris Saint-Germain’s win at Ajaccio in Ligue 1
The reigning French champions cruised to a 3-0 victory at the Stade Francois Coty, thanks to a superb display by the Argentine genius.
The Parisians grabbed another goal in the 78th minute, which came in devastating fashion. Orchestrating the move was Messi who laid a pass to Spanish defender Juan Bernat on the right wing before receiving possession back from the left-back. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner then exchanged a quick one-two with Mbappe, who backheeled the ball into the path of Messi.
Christophe Galtier’s side made it 3-0 three minutes later, with Messi again setting up Mbappe to score his second of the night.
