Lionel Messi pockets brace, including header, in PSG rout – 101 Great Goals

Lionel Messi and Neymar grabbed the headlines tonight, as Paris Saint-Germain kicked off the club’s Ligue 1 title defense in style.

The capital giants were back in action not long ago.

After having a small stampede on Nantes during the Trophée des champions last weekend, the men of Christophe Galtier turned to the business of the championship, during a meeting with Clermont.

And, this time around, PSG looked even more impressive.

A scintillating attacking display eventually resulted in a 5-0 rout from the visitors of the evening.

Neymar proved the star of the show in the early exchanges, opening the scoring, before netting another pair of goals with time to spare before the interval:

The 2nd half, however, proved Messi’s spectacle.

After being fired by this man Neymar for his first of the night ten minutes from time, the Argentinian saved not only his best, but the best of the evening, for the end…

With 86 minutes on the clock, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner latched onto a perfect ball through compatriot Leandro Paredes, controlling with his chest inside Clermont’s penalty area, before heading a sumptuous airy finish beyond the clutches of Mory Diaw and house.
