Rιot shield appeared, Messi was ɑttacked by fans while celebrating historic goal

Lionel Messi is protected by security guards after scoring a career-high 700 club goal.

Paris Saint-Germain beɑt Marseille 3-0 in the 25th round of Ligue 1. The victory at the Orange Velodrome helped PSG increase the gap with the opponent to 8 points.

The pair of superstars Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe shined, when together they contributed to 3 goals – Messi scored 1 goal, assisted 2 goals, Mbappe scored 2 goals, assisted 1 goal.

Notably, Messi’s goal is also the 700th goal of his career at club level.

The Argentine striker scored in the 29th minute, from Mbappe’s precise cross. Mbappe received the ball to the left of Marseille’s goal before making a cross. Messi took the time to make a simple finish before running to celebrate with his teammates.

But when Messi ran from goal to the flagpole where Mbappe was waiting, several security guards ran up to his side. They raised riot shields, preventing foreign objects from being thrown from the stands at the celebrating PSG players.

Immediately, the security staff of the Velodrome stadium rushed over before raising rιot shields to protect the PSG players. Television cameras captured the scene of a security guard in time to prevent a foreign object from being thrown at Messi and his teammates. These extreme behaviors have often appeared in the French derby between PSG and Marseille in recent years.

There has been a staggering increase in fan dιsorder and violent behavior in French football in recent seasons.

Messi didn’t seem too surprιsed by the fan reaction, or the presence of security guards, on another landmark night for him.

It has been a fantastic season for the 35-year-old after winning the World Cup to add to his list of titles.

However, it is still unclear where Messi will play next season. His contract with PSG is set to expire at the end of the season and there is no sign of an extension yet.

With his goal against Marseille, Messi has reached 700 goals in his club career, 28 goals for PSG and 672 goals during his time with Barcelona. The 35-year-old took 840 games to do this, 103 fewer than Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo left Europe with 701 club goals and is currently unable to improve the achievement because the Portuguese superstar has moved to Asia to play for Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr. That means Messi just needs two more goals to overtake CR7 as Europe’s top goalscorer at club level.

Besides scoring, Messi also provided 2 assists for Mbappe to score a brace against Marseille. It was Messi’s 299th assist in his club career. Besides, the Argentine superstar also created 3 delicious opportunities, made 2 successful passes, won 7 duels and 1 time reached the crossbar. Messi was voted by Sofascore as the “Best Player of the Match” in the French derby with 9.3 points out of 10.

On his personal page, prestigious journalist Fabrizio Romano confirmed that Messi will definitely win the FIFA The Best 2022 award. This year’s Gala takes place at Salle Pleyel, Paris, France.
