Ezequiel Lavezzi hammered home the winning goal from close range for PSG.
Metz, France (SportsNetwork.com) -
Ezequiel Lavezzi netted the winning tally six minutes from time on Friday as Paris Saint-Germain jumped to the top of the Ligue 1 table with a nervy 3-2 win over Metz at the Stade Saint-Symphorien.
PSG entered the contest in fine form, having won six straight matches across all competitions and the visiting side struck first after just nine minutes.
Javier Pastore did well to take the ball away from a Metz defender in the attacking half and went in on goal. He galloped inside the penalty area and chipped it over a diving Johan Carrasso for his first goal of the season.
