Mon 30 August 2021 | 3:13

Replacing his former Barcelona teammate, Neymar, in the 66th-minute, Messi was introduced in the 66th minute at the Stade Auguste Delaune.

With goals in the 16th and 63rd minute of PSG’s Ligue 1 clash at

Reims

,

Kylian Mbappe’s

brace sealed 

a 2-0 victory for Reims

 as they head the international break.

Having not won at their own ground in the league since January 24,

Reims

kindly allowed the 22-year-old plenty of space to nod

PSG

in front in the 16th minute. The French striker applied the finishing touch to Angel Di Maria's cross to get his goal.

Reims had an equalizer early in the second half ruled out by VAR for offside before Mbappe doubling the lead for

PSG

, converting Achraf Hakimi's low delivery in the 63rd minute.

Amid strong links with a big-money move to Madrid

, these can be Mbappe’s final goals for the Parisians as the transfer deadline gets closer.

 

After a controversial free transfer from Barcelona

,

Mbappe’s

brace was followed by

Messi's

arrival in the 66th-minute, replacing Neymar. The 6-time Ballon d’Or winner made his long-awaited debut for Paris Saint-Germain.

Messi was not involved last time out as PSG beat Brest since being presented to the fans at the Parc des Princes before the 4-2 win over Strasbourg on August 14.

 

PSG will take on Clermont at home

 when Ligue 1 resumes after the international break.

Reims

, meanwhile, head on the road to take on

Rennes
