Messi’s goal against Man City is the best in the Champions League group stage

The European Football Association announced that the goal of Argentine star Lionel Messi, Paris Saint-Germain striker, against Manchester City, won the best goal in the group stage of the Champions League this season, 2021-22.

Messi’s goal came last September in the second round of the group stage of the tournament, a meeting that the Paris team won by a clean double.

Messi’s goal was the second in the match, which came in the 74th minute after a great individual effort, then a sentence with Kylian Mbappe before he hit the net from the edge of the penalty area.

And “UEFA” revealed today that Messi’s goal is the winner, after he surpassed many other great candidate goals, including the goal of Thiago Alcantara, the Liverpool star, against Porto.

It is worth noting that the draw for the round of 16 of the European Champions League pitted Paris Saint-Germain against the Spanish giant Real Madrid.

Messi has faced Real Madrid several times over the years, often playing the starring role during those matches, as he is the all-time top scorer in El Clasico matches during his time at Barcelona.

The Argentine left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer this summer, however this will be the first time he has faced Los Blancos since then.
