PSG which is currently at the top of the table, lost by a 1-3 score in second place to Lens in the league’s points table. Messi remains in his home country following his win at his first World Cup to Argentina. However, Neymar was shown a red card in the final match against Strasbourg in which case Neymar was not allowed to play in the game.
