Angel Di Maria proved his worth when he set up the first and scored the winning goal to give Paris St Germain a 2-1 win against champion Lille in Ligue 1 after Lionel Messi was injured on Friday.

In the absence of Kylian Mbappé, who is suffering from an infection, Di María shone throughout the match, providing captain Marquinhos with the equalizer after Jonathan David’s first goal before finding the back of the net with two minutes remaining.

After Messi left the pitch early in the second half due to a muscle problem, the Argentine winger found his range to put leader PSG with 31 points from 12 games, 10 ahead of second-placed RC Lens.

Lille, who would have deserved better after a convincing first half, are eleventh with 15 points.

Both teams played from end to end in an entertaining first half, but Lille showed more poise and it took a superb save from Gianluigi Donnarumma to deny Burak Yilmaz in the first minute.

Lille, who looked more like the team that dominated the league last season, was rewarded in the 31st minute when David opened his right foot to deflect a powerful Yilmaz cross towards the ceiling of the net at point-blank range.
