The Argentine recently joined the Parc Des Princes Stadium outfit on a two-year deal and he is still waiting for his maiden goal for them as reported by UK Express.

What Simon Mignolet said about Messi and PSG

"I didn't really have much work to do. We played very well collectively. We didn't give an incredible attack chance. You cannot mark them one-on-one, they have so much quality to beat their man.

The Parisians got the game started on a high with Ander Herrera finding the back of the net just after 15 minutes into the meeting.
