PSG player ratings vs Lens: Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi ensure Ligue 1 title stays in French capital
Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe starred in attack, each finding the net, as PSG's trio of first-half strikes lifted them past second-placed Lens - and likely sealed their title hopes with a 3-1 win.
Mbappe opened the scoring for the home side, completing a flowing team move with a guided shot into the bottom corner. Vitinha added a second 10 minutes later, lashing one in from 30 yards.
Messi got involved for the third, latching onto Mbappe's back-heel before finding the bottom corner to put the game beyond sight shortly before half time.
