Following a sluggish showing in its Ligue 1 home fixture against AS Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain got back on track with a 3-0 away win over Toulouse on matchday five.
PSG forwards Kylian Mbappe and Neymar got on the scoresheet, while Lionel Messi chipped in with an assist on the Brazilian’s opening goal of the contest.
After the match, PSG manager Christophe Galtier (via L’Equipe) took some time to react to the showing from the side’s superstar trio.
“We can only be satisfied,” Galtier said. “Leo made two wonderful passes. Max (Dupe) also made some great saves. There are a lot of relationships between them. Also with Marco Verratti, Vitinha. It’s also because our midfielders get the ball out well. What we did not do against Monaco.
“We have quality players, it is necessary that this technical relationship exists in the heart of the game.”
As it stands, Neymar ranks at first in Ligue 1 in goal contributions with 13, while Messi sits behind him on this leaderboard with seven.
For now, PSG is set to turn its attention to an upcoming away league fixture against Nantes. The ongoing summer transfer window is set to close in mere hours, so it remains to be seen on just which players will be on the PSG roster come Ligue 1 matchday six.
