Revealed: The Lionel Messi streak that ended vs Juventus

A long-time Lionel Messi streak came to an end on Tuesday evening as PSG took on Juventus in a Champions League clash.


The French Champions found themselves in a group alongside Juventus, Benfica and Maccabi Haifa this season, with the Italian outfit of course PSG’s biggest threat in the fight for top spot.

As a result, the French powerhouse will be pleased they got their campaign off to a positive start by beating Juventus.

Kylian Mbappe opened the scoring after just five minutes on Tuesday before adding a second goal in the 22nd minute.

After that brace, it looked as though Juventus were in for a long night. However, PSG failed to find another goal and Weston McKennie pulled one back for the visitors in the 53rd minute. It was little more than a consolation goal, though.

Following the game, it has been revealed that a Lionel Messi streak came to an end on Tuesday.

As per Opta, Lionel Messi was substituted in a Champions League match for the 1st time since 21 October 2014 with Barcelona against Ajax, the end of a run of 63 starts in the competition while playing all 90 minutes each time.

PSG are now set to face off with Brest on Saturday the 10th of September, with Messi likely back in the eleven after coming off early vs Juventus.
