Paris Saint-Germain forward Lionel Messi had one impressive outing in the Ligue 1 fixture against Nantes on matchday 14.
Messi shined in the match with a goal scored and a trio of goal-scoring chances created for teammates. The Argentine sure was active over the course of the match in not only notching key shot attempts but also in being an on-ball playmaker.
As noted by PSG’s official English Twitter account, Messi was involved in nine shots over the match against Nantes, as he logged six shot attempts and created the three goal-scoring chances. This is now a new season-high for him in Ligue 1 play.

This sure was the performance that Messi needed at this point in the campaign, especially as the forward did not score in his opening five league matches with the French powerhouse this season.
Overall, PSG took care of business with a much-needed 3-1 win over Nantes. For the moment, PSG holds a 12-point lead over second place Rennes in the Ligue 1 standings.
