With an incredible performance, Kylian Mbappe himself shone throughout the game. He scored PSG’s first goal in the 25th minute of play and finished with a brace in the 55th minute of the second half.

With his brace of Messi goals and Mbappe’s performance which tied him with Edinson Cavani for the record as PSG’s all-time top goalscorer with 200 goals, PSG secured the win.

The Argentine talisman, who scored 28 goals since his debut against Marseille, arrived at PSG on a free transfer in August 2021 and has since played 62 games for the current Ligue 1 leader.

Lionel Messi goals in club career

Messi, 35, played 778 games for Barcelona in various tournaments and scored an incredible 672 goals for the Blaugrana. When he made his Barcelona debut against Espanyol in 2006, he was the youngest player to represent Barcelona in La Liga; Lamine Yamal currently holds that record. Since then the goals of Lionel Messi have been the highlight of FC Barcelona’s record books.

Excellence at PSG

Messi joined the French giants Paris back in the summer of 2021 because of his failed renewal at Barca, it has been fair to say that his journey in Paris has been  judged as unsatisfactory. If one were to look only at the statistics, the World Cup winner has undoubtedly excelled. In the league, Lionel Messi goals scoring tally reached 22, he also leads in big chance creation (45) and assists (30), and is ranked second in terms of shots (212), crucial passes (152) and dribbles (164). However, Messi was meant to be the last piece needed to put PSG’s machine together and propel them to Champions League triumph. A lack of success in that area is demonstrated by back-to-back last-16 exits

Messi then joined David Beckham’s side Inter Miami in 2023.Miami went unbeaten from July 21, the day Messi made his Miami debut against Cruz Azul, to September 9, the day he played his last game with Miami (against Sporting Kansas City) before sustaining a hamstring injury with Argentina during World Cup qualifying. Miami won eight and drew four of those twelve games, which included seven in the Leagues Cup, four in the league, and one in the U.S. Open Cup. It accumulated 1.59 xG per game and outscored its opponents 33–14.

Messi’s worth is demonstrated by Miami’s significant progress in a way that even his own statistics cannot in a sport where an individual’s influence can be difficult to measure. Despite this, Messi played in 11 games throughout the course of the 12-game stretch, tallying 11 goals and five assists. Including two goals in each of the first three games he started, he scored in all seven of his games.

Mainly, Miami was victorious in the inaugural iteration of the enlarged Leagues Cup competition, which featured 46 teams.

After leading the Argentine squad to victory in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he scored seven goals overall and was a strong candidate for the Golden Boot, Lionel Messi cemented his place as the “greatest of all time.” 

If Messi plays until 2026, he might break the record for the most goals scored in a World Cup. However, Messi acknowledged that he would struggle to continue until that long due to age.

Messi said that it would depend entirely on how his career develops moving forward because there is a long way until the next World Cup. Messi trails Germany’s legend Miroslav Klose by just three goals overall.

Despite this, Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 709 goals in his club career across all competitions, including his latest hat-trick-scoring feats for Al Nassr in Saudi Arabia.
