“Starting to understand Messi’s run,” “Beautiful to see” – PSG fans hail performance from ‘terrific’ player after 3-0 win against Nantes

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) fans heaped praise on left-back Nuno Mendes as they pointed out that the youngster is forming a great partnership with Lionel Messi.

PSG earned a comfortable 3-0 away win against Nantes in Ligue 1. Kylian Mbappe scored a brace while Mendes scored the third for the Parisians to put the icing on the cake.

Messi assisted both of Mbappe’s goals, taking his assists’ tally for the season to six. He has now managed a brace of assists in consecutive games.

However, fans were delighted to see the partnership that the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner is building with the 20-year-old full-back Mendes.

The Portuguese arrived at the French capital last season from Sporting CP. While his talent has always been obvious, he is slowly forging into one of the best players in his position.

Fans compared the link-up plays he is doing with the Argentine to that of the partnership between Messi and Jordi Alba during the former’s time at Barcelona.

Substitute Neymar Jr. struck the woodwork from an Achraf Hakimi cross. The rebound fell into Mendes’ path, who made no mistake in increasing his side’s tally to 3-0.

Here’s how PSG fans worldwide reacted to the dazzling display from their prodigious left-back:
