Lionel Messi scored and Paris Saint-Germain won the French Super Cup against FC Nantes on Sunday with a 4-0 victory. It’s Messi’s 41st title, a staggering haul that puts him just two away from Dani Alves’s record of 43.
TNT Sports Argentina pointed this out on Twitter, writing “be careful, Dani.”
Alves, who has boasted about this record in the past, was humble.
“Nothing to worry about,” the Brazilian replied on Twitter.
“It’s another assist I’m giving him,” he joked,

Messi and Alves were teammates for a long time at FC Barcelona and won many titles as a pair. They formed an intimidating right flank, and Alves was for a long time Messi’s main assist provider in his entire career. Luis Suárez has since overtaken him.
