Lionel Messi failed to have the significant influence at PSG that most people anticipated when he joined the French powerhouses on a free transfer from Barcelona last year. But so far in 2022, it seems the G.O.A.T. is back.
Last season, critics yelled that Messi had lost his normal ability to score goals. In PSG’s uniform, Messi has frequently displayed strong play, but he hasn’t been able to score as many goals as he did in Barcelona.
But all of it has been forgotten due to Messi’s superb play for PSG this season. In the 26 games that have been played thus far in 2022, Messi has managed to score 15 goals and provided 14 assists.
In the upcoming games, Messi’s fans hope to see more goals from him. On August 31, 2022, Messi contributed two assists in a league game against Toulouse. He contributed to goals that Mbappe and Neymar scored.
Messi puts forth a performance that guarantees his team has every opportunity to score from every ball, even when he is not scoring. Indeed, Lionel Messi is the team’s success-maker.
Football fans all over the world cheered after Lionel Messi assisted Toulouse.
Messi has now accomplished a new feat with these two assists. Messi has 14 assists in Ligue 1 so far this year.
With the most assists this season, the Argentine attacker is currently ranked first in the top five leagues in Europe. In the top five leagues in 2022, no other player has more than 14 assists.
These stats illustrate Messi’s ability to create plays. Messi’s brilliance has inspired admirers to start referring to him as the “King of Assists.”
According to Squawka, the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is the leading assist provider in Europe’s top five leagues during the 2022 calendar year.
Messi has contributed to a total of 12 goals in Ligue 1 in 2022, including two this season, according to the football statistics website.
His performance has drastically improved since the year 2022, and he currently holds the top spot in each of Europe’s top five leagues in terms of assists.
With its great players operating at full strength, PSG has had an excellent start to life under new manager Christophe Galtier.
In five games in all competitions so far this season, Lionel Messi has tallied four goals and three assists.
Neymar, whose popularity has decreased over the past few years, has been on fire this year. In his first five games, the Brazilian international had seven goals and six assists.
Kylian Mbappe missed the first two games but made a spectacular comeback, scoring four goals in just two games.
PSG has been in such destructive form under Galtier’s leadership that they might certainly wreak havoc in the Champions League this time around.
This season, the Ligue 1 champions have played four games and scored 24 goals while giving up only three.
The 2022–23 campaign will mark Paris Saint-Germain F.C.’s 53rd season in existence and its 49th straight season playing in France’s top division.
Having won the 11th Trophée des Champions at the beginning of the season, they are competing in this season’s editions of the Coupe de France and the UEFA Champions League in addition to the domestic league.
