Kylian Mbappe was brought off the substitutes’ bench to rescue a late 2-1 win for Paris Saint-Germain against Nice in Ligue 1 on Saturday.

Former Nice coach Christophe Galtier decided against starting Mbappe, but it did not appear to matter when Lionel Messi opened the scoring from a free-kick he had won himself.

That was Messi’s first direct free-kick goal for PSG – and the 60th of his career – yet Gaetan Laborde equalised two minutes into the second half for Nice.

Although Mbappe’s introduction on the hour did not initially make much difference, the France forward’s quality told as he swept in an 83rd-minute winner at the Parc des Princes.
