Led by Lionel Messi, Paris Saint-Germain successfully launched its mission to defend its title. Without German international Julian Draxler and Thilo Kehrer, Paris Saint-Germain easily won 5-0 (3-0) at Clermont Foot at the start of the new season in Ligue 1.
Neymar (ninth place), Achraf Hakimi (26th place), Marquinhos (38th place) and Lionel Messi (80/86th place) scored a goal for Christoph Galtier’s team. The Argentine scored the last goal with a header.
At the start of the quest for the 11th title, which the club would elevate from the Seine to the only record champion, exceptional French striker Kylian Mbappe was absent due to problems with the adductor muscle.
“We have to break records. With humility, I came to Paris to win everything,” said new Paris Saint-Germain coach Christophe Galtier, paving the way for the new season.
Paris Saint-Germain rival AS Monaco with striker Brielle Embolo, who was committed from Gladbach, had previously won 2-1 (1-0) at Racing Strasbourg. Crepin Diatta (43) and Sofiane Diop (53) scored the two goals for Monaco. Played by Ismail Jacobs, Kevin Volland was removed due to a yellow card suspension.
