| Last updated
Lionel Messi produced a moment of magic to score Paris Saint-Germain's winner against Lille on Sunday.
PSG raced into a two-goal lead following goals from Kylian Mbappe and Neymar, who was then forced off with a nasty-looking ankle injury just after the break.
However, Lille hit back with three second-half goals. Bafode Diakite pulled one back before Jonathan David levelled from the spot in the 58th minute.
Jonathan Bamba put the visitors in the lead, with Mbappe bagging his second goal of the game to level proceedings three minutes from time.
PSG retook the lead deep, deep into injury when Messi converted a sensational free-kick. He fired home a low strike in off the post to make it 4-3 in the 95th minute.
