Lionel Messi has made a spectacular start to the season. He scored a screamer Bicycle Kick goal in the starting game of the season with a 5-0 demolition of Clermont on Sunday. Messi controlled down a long ball from Leandro Paredes inside the Clermont box on his chest and then found the back of the net with a stunning overhead kick.
The goal led the opponents at the Clermont’s Stade Gabriel-Montpied to sing the name of the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, who endured a difficult first season in Paris. Messi would have been hoping to hit the ground running after a disappointing 2021/22 campaign and had a stellar performance in the first game.
It was a moment of pure magic. Now 35, some thought Messi’s days at the very top of the game were over. The former Barcelona player hopes to finish the season with an international title for his home country, winning the World Cup 2022.
