Lionel Messi scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain came from behind to beat RB Leipzig 3-2 at the Parc des Princes in the Champions League on Tuesday. 

Kylian Mbappe gave PSG an early lead but goals from Andre Silva and Nordi Mukiele either side of he break gave the Bundesliga side the advantage. 

Messi drew PSG level in the 67th minute and then added his second seven minutes late from the penalty spot to complete the turnaround. 

Mbappe missed the chance to make it four late on as he missed a spot kick of his own, with Messi giving up the chance to complete his hat-trick. 

The win keeps PSG top of the group with seven points after Manchester City had temporarily gone top with six points following their 5-1 win over Club Brugge. 

Leipzig are yet to get a point in the group stage this season and trail third place Brugge by four points. 

The German side were actually the better team for large spells in Paris and ended with 18 shots to PSG's 12, but they didn't take their chances.
