Ligue 1: PSG register 1-0 victory over Lyon
Messi struck after five minutes as PSG edged Lyon 1-0 to regain top spot in the Ligue 1 table ahead of Marseille.
Neymar set up the Argentinian with his seventh assist in eight Ligue 1 games.
The victory pulled PSG two points clear of Marseille who had taken top spot earlier with a 1-1 draw at home against Rennes.
Lorient, 3-1 winners over Auxerre, are three points adrift of the leaders.
“PSG played a great game tonight, against a difficult team which was waiting for us," said PSG coach Christophe Galtier.
