April 4, 2022
For the first time at PSG, Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Kylian Mbappe all scored in the same game as the Parisians looked to right the ship with a dominant 5-1 win over 16th-placed Lorient
After three defeats in four games before the international break and a traumatic Champions League exit, PSG began the end-of-season run-in with a crushing win at the Parc des Princes.
Messi and Mbappe combined to set up Neymar for the opening goal on 12 minutes as the Brazilian struck for just the sixth time in another injury-plagued campaign.

Mbappe then doubled the advantage with a neat finish inside the near post, but Terem Moffi gave Lorient hope early in the second half after punishing a defensive mix-up.
With Lorient threatening to get back into the game, Mbappe restored PSG’s two-goal cushion by drilling home from 20 metres to take his league goals tally to 17, one behind Monaco’s Wissam Ben Yedder.
