Argentine Lionel Messi scored his first goal in the French Football League and contributed to his team’s victory over Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 at its guest, Nantes, in the 14th round of the competition today, Saturday.

Kilian Mbappe and Nantes defender Denis Appiah alternately scored an own goal and Messi in the 2nd, 81st and 87th minutes, respectively, while Nantes’ only goal was scored by Randal Kolo Mwany in the 76th minute of the match.

Saint-Germain has played with ten men since the 65th minute, after Costa Rican goalkeeper Keylor Navas was sent off for interfering with rival striker Ludovic Blach outside the penalty area, to participate in substitute goalkeeper Sergio Rico instead of Brazilian Neymar in the absence of Italian goalkeeper Gianluca Donnarumma.

Messi scored three goals with Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League since joining from Barcelona early this season, but he was unable to score in five league matches before he succeeded today.

With today’s victory, Saint-Germain raised its lead to 37 points, while Nantes’s balance stopped at 18 points in 11th place in the table of the Ligue 1 teams.
