Messi and Ramos sign off with PSG defeat

Published on: 03 June 2023

Sergio Ramos signed off from his time at PSG with a goal but Lionel Messi did not

Lionel Messi and Sergio Ramos played their final games for Paris St-Germain as the Ligue 1 champions lost to mid-table Clermont on the final day.

Defender Ramos headed in an opener from Vitinha's cross and Kylian Mbappe's penalty gave PSG a 2-0 lead.

Clermont battled back and Johan Gastien slid in after Marco Verratti's error.

Mehdi Zeffane equalised and Grejohn Kyei, who had a goal disallowed by the video assistant referee and missed a penalty, bundled in the winner.

Former Barcelona forward Messi, whose name was booed by some fans before kick-off, missed several chances to add to his 32 goals in 75 games for the club. Like ex-Real Madrid defender Ramos, he is out of contract and leaving the club this summer.

Saudi Arabia's Al Hilal and Major League Soccer side Inter Miami are two of the possible destinations for Argentine Messi.

PSG players all wore Sergio Rico's name on the back of their shirts, as well as their own squad number.

Paris St-Germain goalkeeper Rico is in hospital in his native Spain after a horse riding accident the day after they clinched the title last weekend. Fans displayed banners for him before kick-off and during an applause in the 16th minute - his squad number.

Mbappe's goal against Clermont helped him win a fifth consecutive Ligue 1 Golden Boot. He is only the fourth player to finish top scorer in France five times, level with the record of Carlos Bianchi, Delio Onnis and Jean-Pierre Papin.

The France striker finished on 29 goals, two clear of Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, who did not score in his side's 3-1 loss at Nice.


Auxerre were relegated after losing 3-1 at home to Lens, with Ignatius Ganago's goal saving Nantes - who started the day in the bottom four - in a 1-0 win over Angers.

Rennes overtook Lille into fourth place and a Europa League spot with a 2-1 win at Brest. Lille will have to play in the Conference League after their 1-1 draw at Troyes.

Monaco miss out on Europe after losing 2-1 to Toulouse - for whom ex-Cardiff and MK Dons striker Rhys Healey scored a last-minute winner.
