With a deft move minutes into Man City vs PSG, Lionel Messi ‘violates’ Raheem Sterling.

Just a few minutes into PSG’s match against Manchester City on Wednesday night, Lionel Messi unleashed an outrageous nutmeg on Raheem Sterling that left fans stunned on social media.

In Paris St-Germain’s match against Manchester City, Lionel Messi only needed a few minutes to show off his brilliance, leaving Raheem Sterling red-faced with an outrageous nutmeg on the England winger.

PSG travels to Manchester for their penultimate Champions League group-stage match, needing a win to leapfrog Pep Guardiola’s side into first place.

At the Etihad, Mauricio Pochettino fielded a typically tantalizing lineup, with Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar leading the attack.

And just six minutes into Wednesday’s match, the Barcelona legend stunned fans on social media by performing a sophisticated nutmeg on Sterling.

Messi turned on the ball after being picked out in the centre circle by Neymar and held off a challenge from Oleksandr Zinchenko.

Sterling then rushed over to assist his teammate, only to be disappointed when PSG’s star poked the ball through his legs and raced away.

Fans took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction with Messi’s nutmeg, which they felt “violated” Sterling on the night.

“Messi megged Sterling nasty,” one person said.

“Damn Messi sent Sterling for a hotdog,” one commentator said.

“Oi Messi is too rude, Sterling,” said a third.

“Messi just humiliated Sterling,” one user wrote.

Messi was instrumental in PSG’s first goal, pulling the ball across goal for Mbappe to slot past Ederson five minutes into the second half after some neat interplay with Ander Herrera and Neymar.

But their advantage didn’t last long, as Sterling equalized seven minutes later with a close-range goal.

The winger made amends for his nutmeg humiliation in the first half by getting on the end of Kyle Walker’s cross and prodding the ball past Keylor Navas to level the score.

Gabriel Jesus came off the bench with just under 15 minutes remaining to complete the comeback.
