I think it’s probably fair to say that Paris St-Germain are favourites to win Ligue 1 – with or without Kylian Mbappe. The French wonderkid has been linked with a £160m move to the famously skint Real Madrid before the window closes.


But, look, we’re not really bothered about Mbappe for once because the GOAT, Lionel Messi, could well make his PSG debut against Remis on Sunday evening. It’s going to be some occasion and all eyes will be on the Argentinian.

You shudder to think what kind of numbers he’s going to rack up in the Farmer’s League© and poor old Reims are the first side in the firing line. Let’s make a Messi-inspired Bet Builder to celebrate his debut.

Over 4.5 Goals

Look, we know PSG are going to win, that’s a given, so we’ll look elsewhere for our first punt and I think it’s well worth chancing our arm on Over 4.5 Goals in this one. PSG are, shock, top after three games with a 100% win record.

We’ve had Over 4.5 land in two of their games so far, with three goals being scored in the other. PSG have averaged 5 goals per game this season and I see no reason why we won’t see Over 4.5 Goals in this one given the upgrade in their firepower.

Lionel Messi to Have 3 or More Shots on Target

This is, obviously, going to be all about Messi. Even Neymar might take a step back here. You can bet the PSG new boy is going to be on free kicks, corners, penalties – everything.

His team-mates are going to look for him every time he gets the ball and Messi will be desperate to net in his first appearance for his new team. I think we’ll quite comfortably see Messi have 3 or More Shots on Target.

Lionel Messi Anytime assist

As mentioned above, Messi is going to be involved in everything, whether he wants to be or not. his vision is unmatched and the sacrificial lamb, aka Reims, will never have seen anything like it.

I think PSG are going to run riot here and Messi is going to be central to it. With their unbelievable forwards it’s unfathomable we don’t see Messi get an Anytime Assist.

Lionel Messi to Score First

Given how desperate Messi, his team-mates and Mauricio Pochettino will for their new signing to get off for a flyer I think he’ll be getting chances served up on a plate. At a decent price, Messi to Score First, rounds us off here.
