What’s coming for Lionel Messi and PSG
With this victory, the Paris Saint Germain maintains its undefeated stride at the start of the French League by already winning the 12 possible points in the 4 dates. Now, they will have rest until September 12, when they host Clermont.
In the meantime Lionel Messi will travel to South America to defend Argentina on the triple date of the South American qualifiers for the Qatar World Cup. The “Albiceleste” fixture involves visiting Venezuela and then receiving Brazil and Bolivia.
That trip will also be made by his teammate Neymar, who will be Chile’s rival on September 2.
