Ligue 1: PSG relies on Messi to beat Toulouse


Without Neymar or Mbappé, the Parisians won by a short header against TFC this Saturday (2-1), thanks to a brilliant goal from Messi.

PSG continues.

After its victory in Montpellier in the middle of the week (3-1), Paris dominated Toulouse (2-1), Saturday, at the start of the 22nd day of L1.

Deprived of Mbappé, Neymar, Ramos or even Verratti, the Parisians were expected and they started badly.

Very quickly, Renato Sanches was forced to leave his partners, hit in the thigh (12th).

Bad news to which was added the opening of the Toulouse score.

From a free kick, Branco Van den Boomen surprised a Gigio Donnarumma with an uncertain placement (0-1, 20th) and plunged the Parisians into doubt.

And Messi liberated the Park

Not really entered the meeting, PSG reacted on a corner.

Marquinhos brushed the leather at the near post and found the right upright of Dupé (34th).

A first alert for the TFC which then began to dangerously retreat and Hakimi came to punish this passivity and equalize with a long shot from the left, unstoppable for Dupé (1-1, 38th).

The second period then began with a more cautious TFC and a more dangerous PSG.

Ekitike (55th) was close to giving the Parisians the advantage but it was ultimately Messi who freed the Park with a shot from the left after a breakthrough from Hakimi (2-1, 58th).

Paris had then done the hardest but failed to kill the meeting (71st, 74th, 76th) and this allowed Toulouse to believe in it at the end of the meeting (84th, 87th).

Rouault also created a golden opportunity in added time following a corner but Donnarumma then made the necessary save.

In the process, Messi found the post on the last action of the match.

A difficult meeting for PSG who are satisfied with this narrow victory which allows them to temporarily repel OM, which hosts Nice on Sunday, to eight points in the standings.
