Lionel Messi’s performance vs Angers on his Ligue 1 return
Lionel Messi made his much-anticipated comeback to PSG after winning the 2022 World Cup, as the French powerhouse hosted Angers at Parc des Princes, and he provided an ideal encore by netting the team’s second goal in a 2-0 triumph.
Angers did not pose a great deal of danger during the match, having little effect on PSG’s dominance. The home side was a bit anxious at times, but they were in a secure position overall. Hugo Ekitike’s goal in the fifth minute provided PSG with a sense of assurance for the remainder of the match.

It was obvious that, given the current injury situation, PSG boss Christophe Galtier warned his team not to take any unnecessary risks. This prompted some jeers from the home supporters, as PSG seemed to have no motivation to move forward.
Angers felt encouraged since they were still down by only one goal with 20 minutes left, but Messi’s goal was upheld after a Video Assistant Referee check, thus eliminating any chance of a shock result. PSG have increased their lead at the top of the French league table to six points after their win. Angers, on the other hand, remain rooted to the bottom, having not earned a point since September.
