Lionel Messi PSG debut 'expected to be on August 29 against Reims' as superstar continues return to full fitness

LIONEL MESSI will reportedly make his Paris Saint-Germain debut against Reims on August 29.

Messi starred for his country in their Copa America final win over rivals Brazil.

And he is not yet fit to feature for Mauricio Pochettino’s exciting PSG side.

The forward has so far missed two Ligue 1 games for his new side, as well as the Champions Trophy defeat to title holders Lille.
