Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) lost 1-2 to Marseille in the Cup de France round of 16 held at the Stade Velodrome in Marseille, France on the morning of the 9th (Korean time). PSG, which challenged for the Coupe de France (French FA Cup) champion in two years, was shocked to be eliminated early.

In the 31st minute of the first half of the day, the home team, Marseille, scored the opening goal. PSG defender Sergio Ramos conceded a penalty kick (PK), and Alexis Sanchez acted as a PK kicker and scored the first goal for Marseille. Ramos equalized at the end of the first half to make it 1-1, but in the 12th minute of the second half Marseille’s Ruslan Malinowski scored an additional goal to make it 2-1.

PSG placed Messi and Neymar at the forefront. Kylian Mbappe was sidelined with a thigh injury. Messi and Neymar played full-time for 90 minutes, but had to watch the defeat without scoring. It was a game where Mbappe’s vacancy was greatly felt.

Messi was eliminated from the French FA Cup for two consecutive seasons after moving to PSG. Because of this, he has never won the French FA Cup in his career. It is a remarkable history.

Messi has won every competition he has played in, from his days at FC Barcelona in Spain, his PSG career and his career with the Argentine national team. There is only one exception, and that is the French FA Cup.

Messi won La Liga, Spanish King’s Cup, Spanish Super Cup, European Champions League, European Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup with Barcelona. In Argentina, he has won the 2005 FIFA U-20 World Cup, the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, the 2021 Copa America and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. At PSG, he won Ligue 1 and the French Super Cup.
