Lionel Messi scored in PSG’s 2-0 victory over Angers following his return from the World Cup break.

Terem Moffi netted his eleventh goal of the season during Lorient’s 2-2 draw against Monaco.
PSG’s 2-0 win was engineered by young French forward Hugo Ekitike who scored in the 5th minute and Lionel Messi made it 2-0 for the league leaders in the 72nd minute.
