InternationalMessi scores as PSG beat Lyon 1-0

Srinagar: Lionel Messi scored an early goal which turned out as decider in the Ligue 1 clash between PSG and Lyon on Sunday.

It was on Neymar assit that Argentine was able to score taking PSG to top of the points table.

The former Barcelona pair now have five assists between each other in Ligue 1 and they look to have settled well in the new club, following a stint at Barcelona, where they shared 299 goals between each other from 2013 to 2017.

It was the 100th Ligue 1 appearance for Neymar, during which time he has been involved in 121 goals (77 goals and 44 assists).

Messi came close to scoring again multiple times in the second half, but Anthony Lopes denied the forward any chance with a very good performance.

His last attempt, from a free-kick, saw the bar deny him the second as the match finished 1-0 in favour of the French champion.

With the win, PSG went on top of the table with 22 points from eight games, while Lyon, with three consecutive losses sits sixth in the table with 13 points.
