Lionel Messi shines with two assists to Kylian Mbappé as PSG beat Moses Simon’s Nantes in the Ligue 1 encounter at Stade de la Beaujoire on Saturday night.
Nantes talisman Moses Simon missed the clash due to a keen injury but Mbappe curled a delightful opener into the top corner from a Messi ball to cap a swift break.
The home side was reduced to 10 men off after just 24 minutes when Fabio was given a marching order or a tackle PSG summer signing Vitinha.
Mbappe then scored from six yards from a Messi pass across the box, a goal given by VAR after being ruled out for offside initially, before Nuno Mendes hammered in a third.
Ten of Mbappe’s 26 league goals in 2022 have been set up by Messi – the most of any duo in Europe’s top five leagues.
Defending champions PSG are top of Ligue 1 with five wins and a draw from six games.
