Fans of Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) praised Fabian Ruiz for his excellent performance in the 3-1 away victory over Montpellier. Ruiz helped Lionel Messi on his second goal for his squad. At the end of the 90th minute, the hosts managed to get one back, but Warren Zaire-goal Emery’s in extra time gave Christophe Galtier’s squad a 3-1 victory.
Ruiz has already scored his first goal for the team after joining from Napoli earlier in the season against Montpellier. In 20 games thus far this season, he has one goal and two assists to his credit.
The 26-year-old was outstanding during the most recent away game. Ruiz was flawless in the way he set up Messi, even though his goal to start the scoring was a shoddy effort.
Hugo Ekitike set up the little magician when the Spaniard got a gem of a pass-through Montpellier’s defence.
Meanwhile, Marseille is now five points behind Galtier’s squad at the top of the Ligue 1 standings. After 21 games in the league thus far this season, they now have 51 points on the board.
The audience loved Ruiz’s performance, and some said he was far superior to performers like Vitinha and Renato Sanches. They also emphasised how easily Ruiz connected with Messi. He was likened to Andrea Prilo in his prime by a fan.
