Lionel Messi produced a moment of magic from a free-kick to score Paris Saint-Germain’s winner against Lille on Sunday.
Following goals from Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, PSG quickly took a two-goal lead. Neymar was later substituted due to what appeared to be an ankle injury.
But, Lille fought back with three goals in the second half. When Jonathan David equalised from the penalty spot in the 58th minute, Bafode Diakite had pulled one back.
Three minutes before the end of the game, Mbappe scored his second goal to tie the score after Jonathan Bamba gave the visitors the lead.
Lionel Messi’s spectacular free kick allowed PSG to regain the lead in the dying minutes. In the 95th minute, he scored a low free kick that bounced off the post to make it 4-3.
