In the fifth minute, Lionel Messi scored the game’s lone goal to give the visitors a two-fer.
With this win, PSG now sits atop French Ligue 1 by themselves with 22 points, profiting from
Olympique Marseille’s misstep (20 points).
Olympique Lyonnais, however, let its supporters down and suffered its third League One
defeat this year, freezing its score at 13 points and placing them in sixth position.
The Paris giant surprised his opponent early on with a goal scored by Messi with a deft
touch following an accepted gift from Neymar Jr. They did not give their opponent a chance
to catch their breath.
PSG nearly added insult to injury for Lyon, but Messi, Mbappe, and Fabian Ruiz squandered
additional opportunities that were really close to being successful.
The hosts recovered from the initial shock and gradually became more involved in the
action, posing multiple dangerous threats to Gianluigi Donnarumma’s goal.
The offensive trio of Alexandre Lacazette, Moussa Dembele, and Olympique Lyonnais
Ekambi, though, lacked concentration in the decisive moment.
Neymar Jr. unexpectedly startled everyone with a long shot during the excitement and
offensive rush, which the Lyon goalie just just saved.
Messi’s wasted goal
As Messi wasted a clear opportunity 50 seconds after the second half began, the Paris team came dangerously close to repeating the early shock situation.
