Lionel Messi is nowhere to be seen in the Paris Saint-Germain warm-up for the game with Stade Reims. However, the Argentine is just in the competition selection and can start making its debut for PSG.
Ziggo Sport reporter Robbie Peters is present at the meeting between Reims and PSG. However, he reports that Messi, starting on the couch, is not on the field during the warm-up. “Everyone in the stadium is already in place waiting for Messi. The problem is that he‘s not on the field. We can’t find him, so that‘s a bit bale,” says Peters.
It’s not clear where Messi is. Previously, footage of the arrival of the PSG selection at the Stade Reims stadium appeared, on which the 34-year-old vedette was just on display. So Messi starts on the couch on Sunday night, but it‘s probably going to make his first minutes in the Paris Saint-Germain shirt.

Update: Messi has now been spotted at Stade Auguste-Delaune. The Argentine was short, but the Ziggo Sport crew eventually saw it on the pitch just before the start of the game.
