Messi's selfless assist became all the more important for Christophe Galtier's side because of the rumoured infighting in the PSG ranks.
Reports claimed that club captain Mbappe and Neymar are not having the best of relationships.
The Brazilian appeared to be miffed with Mbappe after the Frenchman took the shot rather than passing the ball for a tap-in during their 2-1 win over Juventus in the UEFA Champions League.
Before that, the forwards were involved in penalty drama.
Galtier was even forced to defend his players, saying that Neymar and Mbappe share a “very good” relationship.
