Another amazing performance by Messi. For PSG,was the hero once more as they twice overcame deficits to defeat Troyes in a thrilling 4-3 victory on Saturday. PSG’s league-unbeaten streak appeared to be in jeopardy on two consecutive occasions, but any concerns from fans were quickly allayed.
Before a great goal by Lionel Messi had the same impact on Mama Balde’s second goal after halftime, Carlos Soler had already canceled out the Guinean’s first goal. Ante Palaversa’s late goal gave the visitors hope, but Neymar and Kylian Mbappe’s earlier strikes were enough to lift the French champions to a 4-3 victory.
With the victory, PSG’s lead over Lens at the top of Ligue 1 was restored to five points. Given the disparity in talent between Christophe Galtier’s team and the other teams in the French top division, they have only lost points twice in their first 13 games of the season.
Who else except Messi? Despite not making the Ballon d’Or shortlist, he still proves that he is among the world’s finest players. He has now tallied 12 goals and supplied 13 assists in his first 17 games across all competitions this season. Although they have already advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals, they must defeat Juventus on Wednesday to clinch first place in Group H.
