Lionel Messi rolls back the years with spectacular goal to win PSG league title

Lionel Messi reminded everyone what he is all about after his stunning goal saw Paris Saint-Germain win the Ligue 1 title.

But it was a bizarre night at the Parc des Princes where Mauricio Pochettino was booed by his own fans and large sections of the support left the stadium in protest. PSG could only muster a 1-1 draw against 10-man Lens but it was enough to win the title.

With four matches to go in Ligue 1, the French giants have wrestled back the trophy from Lille – though there was little doubt that they would clinch the title. It was also the first piece of silverware that Messi has won since moving to the club last summer – and he had a huge say over the proceedings.

It was the Argentine's strike against Lens in the second-half that set PSG on their way and he did so in style. Kylian Mbappe popped the ball off to Neymar who stroked it to his old Barcelona buddy.

From outside the box, the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner rocketed his shot past the Lens goalkeeper – who had no chance. It sparked some major celebrations from the forward, something that might not have been seen enough during his first season in France.

Yet despite the momentous occasion for Messi, that feeling was not shared around the Parc des Princes where the supporters continued to boo and jeer. Despite the goal, PSG would go on to concede a late equaliser to Lens – who had a man sent off in the first half.

Before kick-off, Pochettino was booed by the home supporters which continued at half-time after an unimpressive opening 45 minutes. Tensions have been uneasy at the club since their exit from the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid in the last 16.
