Lionel Messi took advantage of the stoppage in Ligue 1 and the rest that Mauricio Pochettino gave him. Last Sunday, La Pulga played the last half hour and provided assistance in the PSG beat Reims 4-0. It was the first meeting of the Argentine star so far this year, after he recovered from COVID-19, a disease he contracted during the year-end festivities in his native Rosario.

“It is good that Messi has played 30 minutes. Little by little he recovers after COVID-19”, said DT Pochettino to ESPN after the match on date 22 of the French league. Messi was on the substitute bench and entered the 18th minute of the second half for the Argentine Ángel Di María at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris. His entry boosted the attack of a PSG that during the first half had complications to reach the rival area. The Argentine star had not played for PSG for a month and a day after an interval due to vacations and the spread of coronavirus in Rosario.

For the latter, Lionel Scaloni, with the prior approval of Messi himself, decided not to summon him for the Qualifying matches against Chile, on January 27 in Calama, and against Colombia, on February 1 Córdoba, to continue with his physical recovery.
