Before joining the Argentine National Team for the last tour before the World Cup in Qatar, Messi scored the only goal in PSG’s victory over Olympique, in Lyons, and left his team at the top of the standings.
It was five minutes into the first half after a great collective play -which had 21 passes- that Leo defined with a precise left-footed touch to a goalkeeper’s post Portuguese Anthony Lopez.
With this result, PSG alone leads Ligue 1 with 22 points, two more than Olympique de Marseille, its closest rival, who drew 1-1 with Rennes; meanwhile, Olympique de Lyon was sixth with 13 units.
At Olympique de Lyon, Nicolas Tagliafico was the starter, who with Leo will join the team led by Lionel Scaloni starting Monday to play the last friendlies by FIFA date before the World Cup.
La Scaloneta will play two games in the United States: on the 23rd against Honduras and on the 27th against Jamaica.
