Pass from Neymar, goal from Lionel Messi, and PSG remain at the top of Ligue 1 before the break. Christophe Galtier’s men relied on their Argentine genius to tame Lyon (0-1), this Sunday, September 18, at Groupama Stadium, at the end of the 8th day of Ligue 1. The former Barça went to score his 4th goal of the season in Ligue 1 in the 6th minute, on a pass from Neymar. The Argentinian was even on the verge of doubling the mark on a free kick sublimely caressed with his left foot, but stopped by the Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes, at the very end of the match. This victory by the smallest of margins allows the Parisians to take the lead in Ligue 1, just before the international break.
However, the Lyonnais proved to be dangerous, especially in the second half. They hampered Christophe Galtier’s men with aggressive pressing, but also with counter-attacks that Alexandre Lacazette, Karl Toko-Ekambi and others never knew how to convert.
From now on, the PSG goes into international truce. Next league match, Saturday October 1st with the reception of Nice (9 p.m.).
