Paris Saint-Germain will take on Clermont in their final Ligue 1 game of the 2022-23 season on Saturday at the Parc des Princes in Paris. The match will be the final game for the club for Lionel Messi, who is set to leave PSG at the end of the season.
Messi has had a good season at PSG, scoring 16 goals and providing 16 assists in the league. That is 10 more than his goal tally for the club last season. He has won two Ligue 1 titles in two seasons but his team has failed to live up to expectations in the Champions League.
Clermont are currently in eighth in Ligue 1 and that's the best they can hope for this season. They have lost just one out of their last nine matches and will be hoping to end the season with an unlikely win against the champions.
The match is sure to be an emotional one for Messi, who will be bidding farewell to PSG fans after two seasons. Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
