Lionel Andrés Messi has scored 772 goals in his long, award-winning and historic career and had never been able to score one with a Chilean technical gesture. That achievement was unlocked this Saturday at the Gabriel Montpied Stadium, in what was PSG’s 0-5 win against Clermont for the first matchday of Ligue 1 2022/2023.
The Argentine made a work of art at minute 86, to close the game with a personal double. He received a cross from his teammate Leandro Paredes, he put it to sleep with his chest and, almost falling, defined it as a Chilean.
Already the ’30’ of PSG adds two goals on the first date, while in his first campaign in Paris he could only shout 6 goals in 26 games (24 starts).
Regarding that goal, the Argentine journalist Carlos Arasaki made a report on the special goals of the Argentine star and barely recorded the first Chilean.
Of those 772 goals, 163 had a luxurious seal by the Argentine. 59 were removed by 2 or more rivals, 47 when the goalkeeper was stung from the grass, 11 times the goalkeeper was stung with the ball in the air at the moment of impact. He also dribbled the goalkeeper 28 times to score and 7 times defined the goalkeeper under the legs.
They are completed with: 3 double-walled, 2 stacked players plus dribble to the goalkeeper, 2 scissors, 1 stacked and spout to the goalkeeper, 1 volley, 1 breaststroke and finally 1 Chilean.
