Paris Saint-Germain’s superstar duo is linking up nicely and tearing up defenses in the French league every weekend. PSG’s match against Lens saw another moment of brilliance thanks to a beautiful team goal initiated by Lionel Messi himself.
In a dazzling display of skill and finesse, Lionel Messi elevated Paris Saint-Germain to a commanding 3-0 lead against Lens just before the halftime whistle blew. This awe-inspiring moment was made possible by a sublime backheel assist from his superstar teammate, Kylian Mbappe.
With the ball at his feet, Messi charged towards the Lens penalty area, weaving through defenders as if they were mere traffic cones. He then orchestrated a heavenly one-two-touch move with Mbappe that left spectators gasping for breath.

As if dancing on air, the French striker received Messi’s pass at the edge of the box and masterfully flicked it back with a deft backheel. The seven-time Ballon d’Or champion, with the precision of a hawk, latched onto the pass after a lightning-fast sprint. And like a true maestro, the Argentine World Cup winner unleashed a thunderous low drive that whizzed past Lens goalkeeper Brice Samba, leaving him grasping at straws.
With the ball nestling comfortably in the back of the net, Lionel Messi erupted into a jubilant celebration – a well-deserved moment of triumph for the legend whose contract with PSG is due to expire come summer.
Paris Saint-Germain now go 9 points ahead of second-place Lens in the French Ligue 1.
