Alerted by the two advantages that Troyes acquired, Leo Messi He pulled gallons and the talent he has shown throughout his career to wake up Paris Saint-Germain and carry out the commitment of the thirteenth day of the French Ligue 1 that he dominates with solvency.
Christophe Galtier’s team did not let themselves be surprised against a rival usually subjected to relegation pressure and this year relieved thanks to neat markers in the middle of the table for now. The team led by Bruno Irles gave a good feeling, who faced the commitment without complexes and who did everything to come out with a prize from the Parc des Princes. He tried to the end.
PSG, who have never lost at home to Troyes in Ligue 1, faced the return to the league with some relaxation after sealing their qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League. The visit of the team from Irles, who have not managed to win in their last four games, pointed out well.
But the clash was entrenched almost from the start for the Parisians because in a counterattack, a center from the left by Abdu Conte was not able to take advantage of Rony Lopes who saw the arrival of the Guinean Mama Balde who beat Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Troyes was serious. But PSG played with the scoreboard. He reacted although at half gas and without excessively disturbing the visitors. A pass into space from Neymar to Carlos Soler was enough for the Spaniard, inside the area, to beat Gauthier Gallon and establish the tie. The Troyes goalkeeper, on the brink of rest, stopped the champion by stopping a header from Leo Messi.
Troyes was not scared, taking advantage again at the beginning of the second half, in minute 52. Once again Mama Balde. He left the Parisian behind in evidence. Especially Presnel Kimpembe. The Guinean received a cross from Wilson Odobert. he stopped the ball, turned around unopposed, and scored.

It was then when Messi pulled gallons. The visitor’s advantage lasted three minutes. The Argentine star received a ball from Sergio Ramos and from outside the area he executed an impossible shot for Gallon.
He took advantage at game time. Messi leaked a ball to Neymar that slipped between the Troyes center-backs and did not miss. He sent the ball into the net and put the Parisians ahead who seemed to sentence with ten from the end, with a foul inside the box by Gauthier Gallon on Kylian Mbappe. The French executed from eleven meters. He did not fail. He did not miss the celebration of the champion’s offensive triplet.
Even so, Troyes did not give up, getting back into the match with a goal by Croatian Ante Palaversa from a Renaud Ripart pass. The Irles team lacked time and success and it was enough for Paris Saint Germain to accentuate their leadership.
