Last update on.From European Football
After leaving Barcelona, Lionel Messi signed a two-year contract with PSG.

Before Saturday's victory over 10-man Strasbourg, Lionel Messi had been introduced to Paris St-Germain fans.

He was presented alongside fellow signings Gianluigi Donnarumma and Georginio Woijnaldum.

Messi was watching from the stands as Mauricio pochettino's team won two Ligue 1 victories from 2.

PSG won thanks to goals from MauroIcardi, Kylian Mabappe and Julian Draxler.

Three goals down in half an hour, Strasbourg had better chances in second half and pulled the score to 3-2 with headers by Kevin Gameiro (and Ludovic Ajorque).

After Alexander Djiku's second yellow for a foul against Icardi, 10 men were left behind by the visitors. Sarabia then tapped in PSG’s fourth goal from Mbappe's corner to end the game.

Messi, who had just returned from Argentina's international duty, was unable to attend the game after signing a two-year contract with PSG.

He was there as Ramos, Donnarumma and Hakimi were both on-screen.
