Messi, Mbappe, Neymar score in same game for first time in 5-1 PSG rout

Kylian Mbappe scored twice and provided three assists as Paris St-Germain kept their 12-point lead at the top of Ligue 1 with a victory over lowly Lorient.

Neymar stroked in the opener and PSG’s fifth, both from Mbappe through-balls.

Mbappe coolly drilled home in the first half and took his tally to 17 for the season with a rasping finish, before laying off for Lionel Messi’s goal.

Terem Moffi pulled a goal back in the second half, but the loss means Lorient stay a point above the drop zone.

France striker Mbappe could have had a hat-trick in a virtuoso display but struck the foot of the post late on.

It took eight months, but Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe all scored in the same match.

The trio were expected to be top scorers together after Messi’s historic move from Barcelona last August.

Once again Neymar was booed by PSG fans before the match, as was coach Mauricio Pochettino, while his name is still associated with Manchester United’s job.

Although Messi’s name was welcomed as the stadium announcer recited it, after he was also mocked alongside Neymar last month.

And despite another sub-par campaign in Europe, Les Parisiens are close to claiming an eighth Ligue 1 victory in just 10 seasons.

Earlier on Sunday, second-placed Marseille won 4-2 at Saint-Etienne, while former champions Monaco, who are sixth, edged a 2-1 victory at Metz.

Heads up!
