Lionel Messi scored a brace as Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) thrashed Montpellier 4-0 in the penultimate Ligue 1 game of the season. They also ended their streak of three consecutive draws with a win on May 14.
The Argentine superstar scored a brace in the first 20 minutes of the clash at Mosson. An Angel Di Maria strike deflected and a Kylian Mbappe penalty later rounded out an easy night for the Parisians.
The 34-year-old forward has endured a difficult debut campaign at Parc Des Princes since he moved from Barcelona last summer. He scored his goal in six of 25 games after a brace against the mid-table team.
Another player who hasn’t had his greatest game since arriving in the French capital last summer is Sergio Ramos. He has struggled a lot with injuries throughout the campaign. The Real Madrid logo has only made 12 appearances in all competitions this term.
Ramos and Messi were famously fierce rivals during their time at Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively. They have shared and fought on the field in countless El Clasico clashes.
However, after the Argentine’s goal celebration in his side’s most recent win, ESPN posted a picture of the legendary duo embracing. This prompted fans on Twitter to comment on the couple’s unlikely relationship. Here are some of their reactions:
Ronaldinho captivates PSG fans with his treatment of Messi and Neymar
Former Ballon d’Or winner and PSG great Ronaldinho has criticized Paris fans for mocking Messi and Neymar.
The attacking duo were booed after Mauricio Pochettino’s men were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid in the round of 16.
Brazilian legend Ronaldinho believes PSG fans are spoiled, and the World Cup champion told RMC Sport (according to The Mirror):
“I don’t understand because there are all the great players. You want to change things? What do you want, the worst players in the world? We have to wait for them to understand this new way of living and playing. The rest. The return will come slowly. This adaptation is normal, to do things well.”
“(Neymar) is one of the best players in the world. He’s had a lot of injuries this year. When he’s at 100%, he’s a really special player for this team. Neymar, (Angel) Di Maria, Messi… the greatest players are together. If you’re not happy with that, who would you play with?”
