Lionel Andrés Messi born 24 June 1987), also known as Leo Messi, is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain and captains the Argentina national team. Often considered the best player in the world and widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, Messi has won a record six Ballon d’Or awards, a record six European Golden Shoes, and in 2020 was named to the Ballon d’Or Dream Team. Until leaving the club in 2021, he had spent his entire professional career with Barcelona, where he won a club-record 35 trophies, including ten La Liga titles, seven Copa del Rey titles and four UEFA Champions Leagues.
A prolific goalscorer and creative playmaker, Messi holds the records for most goals in La Liga , a La Liga and European league season, most hat-tricks in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League , and most assists in La Liga , a La Liga season and the Copa América . He also holds the record for most international goals by a South American male . Messi has scored over 750 senior career goals for club and country, and has the most goals by a player for a single club.
Messi was playing the 150th Champions League game of his career — and his first for PSG — but the Ligue 1 side failed to click in what proved to be a tricky away game in Belgium.
With its electric attacking trio of stars, the Parisians were firm favorites going into the tie and took an expected lead through Ander Herrera after 15 minutes.
But the hosts hit back before the half an hour mark, with Hans Vanaken scoring a deserved equalizer.
Brugge then had chances to win the match and managed to keep Messi and his fellow stars quiet for most of the game — although the Argentine did hit the crossbar with a trademark shot from distance.
“Nobody in the team can be happy with their performance and nobody can be happy with this result,” PSG head coach Mauricio Pochettino told reporters after the match.
“We came here to take points. All the points. Hats off to Club Brugge. They wanted it more than us tonight and they deserve the point.”
Many at the club hoped Messi would be the missing piece of the puzzle in PSG’s hunt for a Champions League trophy but it seems the side is still a work in progress.
The six-time Ballon d’Or winner showed glimpses of magic but the side looked like a team of individuals rather than a cohesive unit.
“We need time to work for them to build an understanding,” Pochettino said, speaking about Messi, Neymar and Mbappé.
“That’s been clear and we’ve said that in recent days. We still have to create a team.”
The night got even more disappointing for PSG when Mbappé limped off injured just six minutes into the second half.
The 22-year-old was tended to by medical staff before hobbling off the pitch with what appeared to be an ankle injury.
