Lionel Messi helped fuel the ‘greatest of all time’ debate on Sunday as he passed one of Cristiano Rona psg messi shirt price ldo’s impressive records.
Messi scored the only goal of the game in Paris Saint-Germain’s 1-0 win over Lyon.
The goal, which was created by Neymar, maintained PSG’s unbeaten start to the Ligue 1 season and kept their two point lead at the top of the table.
The Argentina star now has four goals in eight Ligue 1 games this season, and is already on pace to beat his disappointing total of just six last season.
That is in stark contrast to the 24 goals he scored in the 2021/22 campaign.
The goal against Lyon made it 672 non-penalty goals during his professional career, surpassing his rival’s total of 671.
