Having found his rhythm since the World Cup break, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner was expected to inspire PSG to Champions League success just as he did with his native Argentina.

However, for the second season running, Messi and his PSG teammates will suffer yet another setback in Europe, per ESPNFC.

@vibin_rajan tweeted:

"PSG signed the wrong goat. They would have won a UCL with the right GOAT by now."

@Mohamed50695175 added:

"Messi has destroyed my beloved PSG. He must leave, or we are going to boo him again."

"Messi and Ronaldo will watch the champions league final at home."

@blingbrigz sarcastically called Messi the greatest of all time after PSG's exit:

"G.O.A.T indeed."

@UTDTrey quizzed:

"Genuine question, when last did Messi turn up in a big Champions league game?"

PSG suffer UCL elimination

Sports Brief previously reported that Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored against his former club as Bayern Munich ended the Champions League hopes of Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, beating the French club 2-0 in their last-16 second leg to reach the quarterfinals.

Choupo-Moting, who featured for PSG in their 1-0 Champions League final loss to Bayern in Lisbon in 2020, side footed the ball home after Thomas Mueller dispossessed Marco Verratti inside his own penalty area.

Bayern reached the last eight for the fourth straight year, while PSG will need to wait at least another season to lift the coveted trophy for the first time.
