In round 5 of Ligue 1, PSG will host Clermont at home. Previously, the home team at the Park of the Princes had 4 wins and a maximum of 12 points, topping the league table.
Round 4 marked Messi’s debut match in the PSG shirt. The Argentine superstar was only allowed to enter the field in the last 30 minutes. Although he did not score or assist, he still left his mark with high-class dribbling situations.
Messi is absent from PSG’s registration list
However, those who love Messi will have to wait a little longer to see the idol play for PSG. Because El Pulga is absent from PSG’s registration list because he recently returned to France, the last Argentina team competed in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in South America at dawn on September 10 (Vietnam time). The 34-year-old superstar has not been in the best shape to play against Clermont in the fifth round of Ligue 1.

This is a confrontation too different in class when one side is the super-powerful PSG host who has dominated Ligue 1 for the past decade and the other is the new rookie Clermont Foot for the first time in its history of existence. participate in the French national championship. In all respects, Clermont is nothing compared to the “giant” of Paris.
Not to mention that PSG has Mbappe’s service in this match. There were concerns that the French striker could not attend this match because he had just played with the French team. However, he is still on the registration list of PSG against Clermont.
Messi has only had 30 minutes to play for PSG since joining in early August
In addition to Messi, PSG also do not have the service of South American players such as Neymar, Di Maria, Marquinhos, Paredes. However, PSG still have quality players like Hakimi, Donnarumma, Herrera, Rafinha, Wijnaldum, Gueye or Draxler.
It is likely that Messi will reappear in the visit of PSG to Club Brugge’s field in the group stage of the European Cup on September 16.
