Match highlights : Paris Saint Germain vs Lyon 2-1
Paris Saint Germain vs Lyon : Lionel Messi made his home debut for Paris Saint-Germain, but was substituted after defeating Lyon in the second half and winning six of six victories.
Summer rookie Messi hit the crossbar with a free kick in the first half, forcing Anthony Lopez to save, but failed to achieve his best form.
At the age of 11, he was replaced by right-back Achraf Hakimi, who looked unhappy when he left.
Messi received the applause of the fans, but did not stand to applaud.
The 34-year-old who left Barcelona this summer did not stop, but said a few words to coach Mauricio Pochettino as he walked past the bench.
Another PSG substitute Mauro Icardi scored a header from Kylian Mbappe in the overtime of Ligue 1 and scored the winning goal.
Lucas Paqueta pockets Karl Toko Ekambi’s cross to give Lyon the lead.
But Neymar tied the score with a controversial penalty. He seemed to pull Marlo Gusto back to the penalty area, but the young Lyon defender got a penalty.
Neymar waited for Lopez to leave before sliding in.
This is Messi’s third game for Paris Saint-Germain and his third game for clubs other than Barcelona.
Due to fitness reasons and the last international match day, there was a gap of 40 days between his participation and his home debut.
He made his debut as a substitute in the second half in the 20th victory over Reims last month. The goal was scored before his introduction.
On Wednesday, he made his first debut in the 11th Champions League draw with the Bruges club. Like this game, Mbappe, Neymar and Messi’s top three will start on Sunday.
Messi hits the woodworking corner again in Belgium and Paris, still waiting for PSG Color’s first goal.
He showed some moments of conflict with his old Barcelona teammate Neymar, but there is still work to be done to integrate with the other members of the team.
PSG’s next game is Wednesday’s Ligue 1 trip to Metz as they try to achieve seven of the seven victories in the league.
