Ligue 1 Live – PSG beat Strasbourg 4-2: The former Barcelona star was presented with fellow signings Sergio Ramos, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Georginio Wijnaldum and Achraf Hakimi

Goals from Mauro Icardi, Kylian Mbappe, Julian Draxler and Pablo Sarabia ensured PSG’s victory.

Strasbourg, three goals down inside half-an-hour, had the better chances in the second half, and pulled the score back to 3-2 thanks to headers from Kevin Gameiro and Ludovic Ajorque.

But after Alexander Djiku’s second yellow card for a foul on Icardi, the visitors struggled with 10 men and Sarabia tapped in PSG’s fourth from Mbappe’s cross to put the game to bed.

After joining PSG on a two year deal earlier this week, Messi was unavailable for the game, having only recently returned from international duty with Argentina.

He watched alongside Ramos and Donnarumma as Wijnaldum and Hakimi both featured.

Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday omitted superstars Neymar and Lionel Messi from their squad for the Ligue 1 meeting with Strasbourg in the evening.

For the second game of the season, coach Mauricio Pochettino has again not selected any of the players who returned to the club late from the Euros or the Copa America.
