Lionel Messi equals the record of the most goals scored in Europe’s five top leagues. After Paris Saint-Germain‘s win over RC Lens, the Argentine now has 495 goals across the top five leagues. It took him only 572 games to accomplish this feat.
PSG won comfortably against Lens, who are currently in second place. Les Sang et Or put a little pressure on the league leaders. They have opened a gap of nine points between themselves and the nearest challengers. The home team won all three points at Parc des Princes thanks to goals from Kylian M’bappe and Vitinha.
Paris is close to winning yet another title. PSG needs just 13 points in the remaining seven matches of their league to secure their 11th title.
