PSG run riot on Clermont, Lionel Messi seals 5-0 victory with brilliant bicycle kick

The PSG version of the 2022-23 season made its Ligue 1 debut Saturday with a crushing performance against Clermont 0-5, including a masterpiece bicycle kick by Lionel Messi to seal the victory.

The goal, in addition to its quality, was a clinical finish that "La Pulga" had only done a couple of times in his career.

It was an exciting start to the season for the French team, which was able to retain all its stars, particularly Kylian Mbappé.

Now under the command of Christophe Galtier, PSG will not only seek to conquer its domestic league, but also transcend in the Champions League.

Messi stood out in the final stretch of the match, scoring a brace with one goal in the 80th and the other in the 86th minute.

The latter was a spectacular bicycle kick after receiving a long ball from Leandro Paredes.

He controlled the ball with his chest and contorted his body midair to strike the ball past the keeper.

Key players in PSG victory

Another player who played very well was Neymar, scoring the first of the match in the ninth minute to go with three assists.

Achraf Hakimi made it 0-2 in the 26th minute and Marquinhos made it 0-3 in the 38th minute.

The first goal came when Neymar easily pushed the ball past the keeper off a Messi assist.

The home team did not react and in the 25th minute, the lead increased when Hakimi closed at full speed on the right side of the area.

He received the ball and shot past Mory Diaw and before the break, Neymar delivered a cross to Marquinhos, who literally used his head to get the goal.

In the second half, PSG controlled the match and Messi showed off with two goals, including the bicycle kick.

Next weekend, PSG will play at home against Montpellier while Clermont will be away against Reims.
