Lionel Messi Closes In On 700 Career Goals By Sealing Dramatic Comeback Win For PSG With Superb Free-Kick

Lionel Messi completed a dramatic turnaround to help Paris Saint-Germain beat Lille 4-3 in Ligue 1 on Sunday.

Messi found the net from a direct free-kick from 25 yards in the fifth minute of added time.

He placed his shot just to the right of Lille's five-man wall and watched on as the ball clipped the inside of the post before bouncing into the net.

It came after PSG had gone from 2-0 up to 3-2 down and lost Neymar to an ankle injury.

Neymar assisted Kylian Mbappe for PSG's opening goal before scoring the second himself.

Bafode Diakite, Jonathan David and Jonathan Bamba then turned the game in Lille's favor.

But Mbappe drew PSG level with his second goal of the match in the 87th minute before Messi's magic moment arrived in added time.
