Two hundred days after their first appearance as a trio, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar all scored in Paris Saint-Germain’s 5-1 win over Lorient.
It was the first time they had all netted for PSG in the same game.
All three of them combined to help PSG score their first goal of the day. Messi flicked a pass around the corner to Mbappe, who slid in Neymar and the Brazilian slotted home.
Mbappe joined Neymar on the scoresheet moments later, after being teed up by Idrissa Gana Gueye.
Terem Moffi pulled a goal back for Lorient, before Mbappe got his second of the game by dancing around Julien Laporte and firing home from outside the penalty area.
Mbappe then played the role of provider for Messi as he dribbled to the byline before pulling the ball back for the Argentina captain.

PSG’s star trio celebrated together. But they were not finished yet.
Neymar collected the ball inside his own half in the 90th minute before driving forward, playing a one-two with Mbappe, and finishing cooly past the keeper
