UEFA Champions League

BAY 2-0 PSG: Lionel Messi's Performance Last Night Suggests He's No Longer Good Enough For The UCL

Last night, Bayern Munich dumped PSG out in the first knockout round, with Wednesday's 2-0 win in Germany sealing the victory, where Lionel Messi and his teammates were unable to score a goal in 180 minutes and crashed out on a 3-0 aggregate. 

With the addition of Lionel Messi and the likes of Neymar and Mbappe, PSG's chance of winning the Champions League couldn't have been higher, but they are not getting any closer because this is Paris St-Germain's 11th consecutive attempt at winning the Champions League, which ended in more misery.

Lionel Messi is not good enough for this level anymore. He has the talent, but last night, Bayern Munich's midfield could easily catch up with him. Goretzka did it from five yards behind. 

Though he hasn't signed a new contract as of yet, Argentina's 35-year-old captain is said to be interested in staying at PSG.

He has amassed a record seven Ballons d'Or and scored 29 goals in 64 appearances for PSG since leaving Barcelona two summers ago, but he has not been the driving force behind the elusive Champions League victory. It's now been eight seasons since Lionel Messi last won the UEFA Champions League trophy.

Nonetheless, PSG are eight points clear of Marseille at the top, so Lionel Messi is likely to add another Ligue 1 trophy to the cabinet.

Some suggest that when the team revolves around Messi to serve him, he will give you 100 times his level. It was seen at the World Cup, and this is what he lost in Paris.
