Lionel Messi can break these 5 records for Paris Saint-Germain
Lionel Messi has made a fascinating move to Paris Saint-Germain. As he is playing Ligue 1 for the first time, he is being backed to break some records, as we present the ones possible.
Argentine superstar Lionel Messi is now a Paris Saint-Germain player, as he is playing Ligue 1 for the first time in his career. While he is famous for being a record-breaking performer, he is being backed to break some of the records with the side this season. These are some of the possible ones that he can break.
Most UEFA Champions League hat-tricks for PSG
Messi has scored eight UCL hat-tricks to date, compared to the couple each from PSG's Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. If Messi can keep up with his form and prove his legacy, he would surpass the duo in no time.
Most Ligue 1 season goals
Messi's record of most La Liga goals in a season happens to be 50 in 2011-12. However, ten years since, he is not the same. The record for most La Liga goals in a season is 38 by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Although Messi would have to work hard to beat the record, he is undoubtedly capable of doing so.
Most PSG goals in a single game
The record for most PSG goals in a match happens to be four by nine players. As for Messi, he has already scored four-plus goals in a single game for Barca on eight occasions, and it is just a matter of time before he could replicate the feat for PSG.
Most PSG UCL season goals
The current record for the same by a PSG player lies with Ibrahimovic again, having scored ten goals in a season during the 2013-14 season. Meanwhile, Messi has already netted ten-plus in a single UCL season on five instances, which definitely makes him a favourite to surpass the Swedish football god.
Most season goals
Once again, the record for this lies with Ibrahimovic, who scored 50 goals in an entire PSG season across competitions. Meanwhile, Messi has scored 50-plus on six instances with Barca, with his record being 73 in 2011-12. Again, he will have to work hard for this, but it certainly won't be impossible.
