PARIS (AP) — Lionel Messi has scored his first goal in the French league and Kylian Mbappe grabbed the fastest goal of his career as Paris Saint-Germain beat Nantes 3-1. Messi sealed PSG’s win in the 87th minute from Mbappe’s pass at the end of a counterattack. The Argentina star quickly advanced near the edge of the box, dribbled past a defender and curled one of his signature left-footed shots past Nantes goalkeeper Alban Lafont. Messi had already scored three Champions League goals for his new team. PSG has a 12-point lead over Rennes, which moved to second place with a 2-0 win over Montpellier.
