    PSG 3-2 RB Leipzig: Lionel Messi double inspires Champions League comeback

    Lionel Messi’s second-half double steered a lacklustre PSG to a scarcely deserved comeback victory over RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday night. Kylian Mbappe’s early goal had put the French side ahead, but they were abject for much of the next hour as the struggling Bundesliga outfit fought back into a well-earned 2-1 lead, before Messi first equalised and then stole all three points with a ‘Panenka’ penalty 15 minutes from time. PSG had earned a statement victory over Manchester City in their previous group game, but began the night trailing the English side in the table after Pep Guardiola’s men hammered Club Brugge earlier in the evening.
