PARIS: Paris Saint-Germain’s sensational summer signing Lionel Messi made a successful first Ligue 1 appearance in a 2-0 win away to Reims.

Messi joined the game as a 66th-minute substitute for his former Barcelona team-mate Neymar in the 66th minute at the Auguste-Delaune stadium.

Three minutes earlier PSG had extended their lead through a personal second from Kylian Mbappe.

Those could be the last goals the France striker scres for PSG amid speculation over an imminent transfer to Real Madrid.
