Lionel Messi seems to be improving daily in the French Ligue 1 with Argentine providing three assists in PSG’s 3-1 comeback win away to 10-man Saint-Étienne.
Les Verts had opened the scoring through Denis Bouanga but Messi made the most of Timothée Kolodziejczak’s red card on the stroke of half-time as he fed Marquinhos for two headed goals before Ángel Di María struck later to complete the comeback.
