Paris Saint-Germain snapped its three-match losing streak with a dramatic 4-3 home win over Lille OSC on Ligue 1 matchday 24. PSG had multiple players rise to the occasion over the course of this league match, including Lionel Messi.
On the heels of back-to-back sluggish performances against Olympique de Marseille and Bayern Munich, Messi delivered when it mattered the most for PSG against Lille, scoring a game-winning, free-kick goal in the 95th minute of the contest. Lille OSC goalkeeper Lucas Chevalier did not have much of a chance to save Messi’s free-kick shot, as the Argentine’s attempt ricocheted off of the woodwork and then flicked into the back of the net for a goal.
Messi later took to Instagram to react to PSG’s thrilling win over Lille OSC.
“Vamoooosss!!!” Messi wrote.
