Lionel Messi to Score 30+ 21/22 Ligue 1 Goals – 11/8

Lionel Messi managed to score 30 league goals in 35 appearances in La Liga last season. The 34-year-old Argentinian comes into this season having scored 672 goals in 778 matches for Barcelona throughout his career, including 73 across all competitions in 2011/12 where he managed 70 goal contributions in 37 La Liga games.

The former Barca man has scored 128 goals in 158 Champions League games, so, it is unlikely that he will have any troubles adapting to life at PSG as he is used to playing against French sides in this competition, scoring last time out against his current side in a 1-1 draw in the round of 16 last season, which was in fact the sixth time he’d hit the back of the net in 10 appearances against the Parisians.

Lionel Messi to score 7+ 21/22 Ligue 1 goals from outside the area – 9/4

As of March 2021, Messi had racked up a staggering 42 league goals from outside the area in the last five seasons, meaning that he averages 8.4 per campaign.

The 34-year-old is typically known for his incredible variety of goals from outside the penalty area, as he tends to cut in from the right-hand side on his favoured left foot and is fairly unpredictable in terms of what corner he aims for.

Last season Messi had a staggering conversion ratio for shots from outside the box in La Liga, as 25% of them went into the back of the net. The PSG man has hit in six or more goals from outside the box on six different occasions since the 2009/10 season, with last season being the latest.

PSG/ Lionel Messi 21/22 UCL Winner/Top Scorer – 12/1

As mentioned above, Messi has managed 128 goals in 158 Champions League appearances. The PSG forward has won the Champions League Golden Boot on five different occasions with nine goals in 2008/09 as Barca went on to win the competition for the third time, eight in 2009/10, 12 in 2010/11 as they beat Manchester United at Wembley Stadium in the final, 14 in 2011/12 and 12 in 2018/19.

The last time Messi was part of a Champions League winning side was back in the 2014/15 campaign when Barca won a treble under Luis Enrique, this was also the last time his PSG teammate Neymar also won this competition, having played in the ‘MSN’ front three which also included Luis Suarez, now of Atletico Madrid.

PSG finished as runners-up for the Champions League in the 2019/20 season having been beaten by Bayern Munich in the final at Lisbon via a Kingsley Coman goal. With the current squad that Mauricio Pochettino has at his disposal following the signatures of Messi, Gini Wijnaldum, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi this summer, the Parc des Princes club arguably have their best chance of becoming champions of Europe for the first time.

Lionel Messi to score 25+ league goals and assist 20+ league goals – 16/1

Last season, Messi managed 30 goals and 11 assists in 35 La Liga matches, what must be noted though, is that Ligue 1 is regarded as a lower quality league, as there won’t be sides of a similar standard to that of Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid to challenge the Argentinian’s side.

In the 2019/20 campaign, the 34-year-old managed 25 goals and 22 assists in 33 La Liga appearances, this was the first time that Messi had tallied over 20 assists in a league campaign since that of 2014/15, where he created 21 assists and hit the back of the net 43 times in 38 fixtures.

PSG to win all 38 Ligue 1 Matches – 500/1

PSG have the record of having scored the most points in Ligue 1 history following their tally of 96 in the 2015/16 campaign under Laurent Blanc, where Zlatan Ibrahimovic fired in 38 league goals as the Parc des Princes club won a domestic treble.

It is likely that PSG could become the first team to score 100 points in Ligue 1 this season following the acquisition of Messi. This means that Pochettino will have the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Mauro Icardi, Angel Di Maria and Julian Draxler as his forward options in his squad, giving him an embarrassment of riches that will see his side be the favourites to win every match that they play in.
