Paris Saint Germain go to the top of the table with a two point lead as Lionel Messi’s early goal proves to be the difference.
In only the fifth minute of the game, Leo Messi found the back of the net and scored his fourth league goal of the season. After the win, PSG are now on 22 points after just 8 games.
Further good news came when Olympique de Marseille were held to a draw at home by Stade Rennais and thus were 2 points below PSG.
After the game PSG midfielder Vitinha gave an interview saying that he was happy with the victory but knows the team can improve even further.
“I’m satisfied with the result but not with the performance. We could play a better match, we can still improve, but the victory is there. We have to control the match more, especially in the second half.”
“We had possession, but not enough chances for my liking. It was still a good game. We had to win, and we did it.”
