Before measuring Bayern Munich, the low blow that Lionel Messi receives at PSG
These are not easy or comfortable times for Lionel Messi and for Paris Saint-Germain. The 2022/2023 season started practically perfectly for the Parisians led by Christophe Galtier, however, it seems that the break in the World Cup in Qatar ruined their good dynamics and a significant decline in level has been noted, and as if that were not enough, They already suffered a Coupe de France elimination, which becomes the first title lost this season for them.
In addition, as if that were not enough for Lionel Messi, now the Argentine has suffered a personal attack, and a threat as well. In the early morning of March 2, 2022, the Antonela Rocuzzo family supermarket suffered a series of bullets that worried the Argentine’s family. The bullets did not hurt anyone, as they were directed at the wall and the window, however, the message left for Messi was worrying: “Messi we are waiting for you.”
Lionel Messi, who still hasn’t resolved his football future in Europe, is fully involved in what will be the match between PSG and Bayern Munich, to be played on March 8 in Germany, as part of the second leg of the round of 16 final of the Champions League. In this context, Christophe Galtier, coach of the Parisians, dealt a low blow to Leo’s aspirations to continue in the international tournament.
The top winner of the Ballon d’Or (7) returned to his best level after the World Cup in Qatar. There was criticism against him for the performances he had with PSG after becoming world champion, but in the last two presentations his performance was superlative. Even in the French classic against Olympique Marseille, he gave two assists and scored a goal, in a 3-0 win.
Despite this, the captain of the Argentine team received bad news prior to the difficult duel against the Teutons, at the Allianz Arena. At a press conference, Christophe Galtier confirmed that Neymar, one of his main partners, will not be available for the match against Bayern Munich. The Brazilian failed to recover from his ankle injury.
The fans trust the Messi-Mbappé duo:
Although Neymar is key in Galtier’s scheme, his absence has allowed Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé to understand each other perfectly and the fans are excited about their performances together. What’s more, Robert Pires, world champion with France in 1998, praised the work of the super stars, who hope to break the curse of the Parisians in the Champions League and achieve the long-awaited ‘Orejona’. Anyway, this March 8 Paris Saint-Germain will try to avoid a new failure in the UEFA Champions League, competition that they have not yet been able to win even once, and they want this year to be a good one.
