Lionel Messi Paris Saint-Germain debut: When will the superstar play his first game for French giants PSG?

The world awaits for what will be one of the biggest moments in the sport in a long, long time. Lionel Messi, after decades at Barcelona, is now at PSG and preparing for his debut for the club. Alongside his friends Neymar, Angel Di Maria, Leandro Paredes and more, when might we see the Argentine superstar take the field for the Champions League favorites?

Messi was unveiled in front of the fans on Saturday in the 4-2 win over Strasbourg, with the club improving to 2-0-0 on the young season. It feels like the first time we see Messi play for the club will be away from the Parc de Princes, however.

PSG’s next match is this Friday against Brest. While Messi has been training, he had a busy summer with the Copa America and just arrived in Paris last week. While he could feature in that match, there is also a chance that it could be away to Reims on Aug. 29. 

The sooner the better, surely, but keep in mind that after the next two matches there is an international break where Messi will likely be with his national team for World Cup qualifiers. If he doesn’t feature before then, all signs point to Sept. 19 against Lyon, but that being a month away seems quite unlikely.

The club has yet to confirm whether he will be available for Friday’s match, but expect him to play for PSG before the international break, as that won’t be an opportunity for him to rest as he aims to get the reigning Copa America champions well on their way to qualifying for next year’s World Cup in Qatar.
