He must have been one of the most talented VIP chests ever. Lionel Messi watched his future teammates from the main stands, along with Neymar and Angel Di Maria. The new King of the Parc des Princes sat on his throne.
The Argentine saw that PSG made a strong start against Strasbourg. In the half hour, Red Devil Matz Sels had to turn 3 times after goals from Icardi, Mbappe and Draxler. Everything indicated that PSG was on its way to a massive victory.
After the break, the situation suddenly changed. The visitors came 3-1 through Garnero shortly after the break. 10 minutes later, Ajorque scored the linking goal. The party atmosphere at the Parc des Princes took a hit.
Strasbourg was definitely looking for an equaliser. But Djiko played a wrong way for a driver with his team, by getting two yellow cards in one minute. Then Sarabia grabbed the compensation 4-2.
Messi raised his thumb.
Despite his goal, Kylian Mbappe had a less enjoyable evening. The striker has been crucial to PSG in recent years, but he received a big whistle before the game against Strasbourg tonight when his spokesman called.
Mbappe has not been very popular in recent months by not responding to contract proposals made to him by the French first club. The striker’s current contract expires at the end of the season, putting him at risk of leaving for free.
It’s an open secret that Real Madrid wants Mbappe.
There was applause for Lionel Messi’s kick-off. The dream Argentine acquisition of PSG made his first public encounter at the Parc des Princes. The club’s other four billion dollar acquisitions were also shown.
