Lionel Messi returns to PSG duty with Pelé tribute and goal in win over Angers | Paris Saint-Germain

Lionel Messi celebrated his return to domestic competition after the World Cup by scoring a second-half goal as Paris Saint-Germain extended their Ligue 1 lead to six points with a 2-0 home win against Angers.

Messi, who wore a T-shirt honouring Pelé when he warmed up, received a strong welcome from the Parc des Princes crowd. He netted from close range in the 72nd minute to add to Hugo Ekitike’s first-half opener, putting PSG on 47 points from 18 games.

Lens stayed second but dropped two points in a 2-2 draw at struggling Strasbourg with all the goals being scored before the break.
