Messi in line for PSG Champions League debut after making squad for Club Brugge showdown

0

The
Argentina
superstar
made
a
shock
move
to
the
Parc
des
Princes
on
a
free
transfer
last
month
after
Barcelona
were
unable
to
meet
La
Liga’s
financial
requirements
to
offer
him
a
new
contract.

So
far,
Messi
has
played
only
24
minutes
of
football
for
PSG,
that
coming
as
a
substitute
in
the
4-0
rout
of
Reims
before
the
international
break.

It
remains
to
be
seen
if
Messi
will
start
against
Brugge
but
he
is
in
the
travelling
party
for
the
trip
to
Belgium.

Messi
is
one
of
the
most
decorated
players
in
Champions
League
history,
having
won
the
competition
four
times
with
Barca.

It
he
does
play,
it
would
represent
a
landmark
150th
appearance
for
Messi
in
Europe’s
premier
competition,
and
first
not
playing
for
Los
Cules.

He
has
scored
an
incredible
120
Champions
League
goals,
a
tally
surpassed
only
by
the
135
of
Manchester
United
star
and
long-time
rival
Cristiano
Ronaldo.

During
their
time
together
at
Barcelona,
Messi
and
Neymar
combined
for
nine
Champions
League
goals
in
33
appearances
alongside
one
another
(five
Messi
goals,
four
Neymar
goals).

Since
2003-04,
only
six
duos
have
combined
for
10
or
more
goals
in
the
competition,
with
three
of
those
pairs
involving
Messi

15
with
Andres
Iniesta,
12
with
Luis
Suarez
and
10
with
Dani
Alves.

However,
centre-back
Sergio
Ramos
must
continue
his
wait
to
make
his
debut
for
PSG.
Signed
on
a
free
transfer
from
Real
Madrid,
the
Spain
legend
remains
absent
with
a
left
thigh
injury.

Ramos
is
also
a
four-time
winner
of
the
Champions
League,
lifting
the
trophy
three
years
in
succession
between
2016
and
2018.
