The Argentine scored his first goal for his new club in style in a win over Manchester City

Lionel Messi said that Tuesday's win over Manchester City proved to be a "perfect night" as he scored his first goal for Paris Saint-Germain in a massive Champions League victory, reports Goal.com.

Playing in his fourth game since joining from Barcelona this summer, Messi scored PSG's second goal on an assist from Kylian Mbappe, helping his side to a 2-0 win over City.

With the goal, Messi scored in his 17th consecutive Champions League campaign, equalling a record set by Karim Benzema just minutes earlier.

What was said?

"It was a perfect night against a great opponent," Messi told Canal+. "For us, it was very important to win this game after Brugge (a 1-1 draw away).

"I am very happy to have scored. I haven't played much recently, I had only played one game here. I am adapting little by little. What is important is to keep winning.

"Our relationship will get better and better with each game. We all have to grow together, increase our level of play. We have to continue.

"We won a very important game against a very big rival, who was in the final last year. We must continue to progress, improve a lot of things for the future."

Another record-breaking night

Ever after all these years, Messi continues to reach new heights in the Champions League.

With his goal against City, he's now scored in 17 straight Champions League seasons, joining Benzema with Cristiano Ronaldo just behind the pair at 16.

Benzema netted from the spot in the second half against Sheriff on Tuesday, but the Moldovan side scored late to stun Real Madrid 2-1 at the Bernabeu.

Messi has also scored 27 goals in 35 appearances against English teams in the Champions League, 15 more than any other player in the competition.

The goal was Messi's 121st strike in the Champions League, as he moves within 14 of Ronaldo for the competition's all-time mark.

It was also a goal that saw him continue to torment his former manager Pep Guardiola, with Messi now scoring seven times in five games against the ex-Barcelona boss.
