The star ensemble from Paris St. Germain continues to march undeterred towards the title in France’s Ligue 1.
When superstar Lionel Messi made his comeback, coach Mauricio Pochettino’s team won 4-0 (1-0) against Stade Reims on Sunday and is at the top of the table after 22 games with eleven points ahead of pursuer OGC Nice.
European champion Marco Verratti gave PSG the lead just before the break (44′), the Spanish defender Sergio Ramos (62′), Wout Faes with an own goal (67′) and Danilo (75′) increased. Messi returned after more than a month, the Argentine, who tested positive for the corona virus three weeks ago, came on in the 63rd minute.
Pochettino once again trusted right-back Thilo Kehrer in the starting XI. National team colleague Julian Draxler came on for Kylian Mbappé in the 77th minute.
For the 28-year-old, it was the first minutes since the beginning of November. About two weeks ago, Draxler fell ill with COVID-19.
