Messi took on former mentor Pep Guardiola as Paris Saint-Germain travelled to Manchester City.

And things got off to a good enough start for the Argentine.

He nutmegged Sterling with an outrageous little flick of his left boot in the first half.

And he then assisted a lovely Kylian Mbappe opener following a neat move in the 50th minute

Focusing on his piece of dazzling skill, one fan wrote: “Messi really loves a nutmeg against City.”

While another joked: “Messi nutmeg against City is inevitable.”


From this point onward, however, Sterling would come out on top.

The 26-year-old tucked home City’s 63rd minute equaliser.

He then watched at close quarters as Bernardo Silva teed up Gabriel Jesus to slot home a priceless winner.

The 2-1 triumph confirms City’s status as group winners with a game to spare.

PSG meanwhile will come second, opening them up to a tough Round of 16 clash.
