Lionel Messi provides assists for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in masterful showing for PSG, he’s cooking

Lionel Messi set up Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in a masterful showing as Paris Saint-Germain beat Toulouse 3-0 on Wednesday.

Messi starred as PSG continued their unbeaten start to the season, picking up three league points at Toulouse.

The 35-year-old recorded his first assist of the night when he delightfully pierced a ball to Neymar.

Marco Verratti played in Mbappe who found Messi, who hit a first-time through ball to the Brazilian who slotted home to open the scoring.

Messi then assisted Mbappe in the second-half in a stunning team move that saw Verratti play an influential role in the goal.

The Italian midfielder lofted a sublime pass to Messi who raced onto the pass, before brilliantly losing his marker.

He shrugged off the Toulouse defender then teed up Mbappe, who made no mistake in front of goal.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner appears to be back to his best this season following an underwhelming start to his PSG career.

He’s already scored three goals and recorded four assists in his side’s five league games this term.

Messi, Neymar and Mbappe are forging a terrifying attacking trident as they take the league by storm.

PSG will be hoping their front three will be in fine form when they open their Champions League campaign against Juventus next week.
