Without Mbappé, Neymar and Sergio Ramos, all injured, Lionel Messi put PSG on his shoulder. And he led them to a difficult victory against Toulouse at the Parc des Princes. The 35-year-old striker scored a great goal and tried an Olympic shout that if it weren’t for the stick would have ended up in the net: with his contribution, the Parisians won 2-1 to stay comfortably at the top of the Ligue 1 (stretched the difference over Olympique de Marseille to eight points, with one more game).
A great goal and a jewel that was annulled by offside: Lionel Messi’s pearls in PSG’s victory against Montpellier
The star from Rosario was decisive in the return to victory of the Parisian team that asserted itself at the top of Ligue 1 after winning 3-1 away
The captain of the Argentine world champion team in Qatar 2022 was the clearest footballer of a team that still has not managed to recover the version it showed before the World Cup. Hakimi’s stride and the flashes of La Pulga were the best weapons for those led by Christophe Galtier to stay in the game after Branco van den Boomen’s goal 20 minutes into the initial stage.
The former Barcelona never abdicated in his search. He gave away a pair of stacked ones with his signature, even more aesthetic than when the supersonic speed of his youth made them look simple. He tried an Olympic goal at 33 ′ and almost succeeded: his shot-center at the near post disoriented the goalkeeper, no one connected and he hit the far post.

Fatal match for Mbappé: he missed two penalties in one minute and was injured

If he almost closed his task with two pearls: 15 from the epilogue, he received from Nuno Mendes, he got rid of an opponent, faced the front and praised the left-footed shot: his bet happened close to an angle. To test his level of competitiveness: he was bummed as if the match was 0-0. And at 94 minutes he filtered from right to left, defined with subtlety and… Again the stick denied him what he deserved.
The star from Rosario has accumulated 15 shouts and 14 assists in 23 games this season in the PSG jersey, not counting his great contribution to the Albiceleste in the World Cup in Qatar, where he scored seven transcendental goals for the conquest, in addition to having won the Ball Gold for the best player.
