Why Lionel Messi has travelled to Barcelona after PSG vs Lille

Lionel Messi has been spotted flying to Barcelona on Sunday.

PSG faced off with Lille on Sunday afternoon, heading into the game looking to bounce back from two defeats in a row.

PSG lost to AS Monaco in Ligue 1 last weekend before then suffering a 1-0 loss at the hands of Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Vs Lille, meanwhile, the French champions notched a comfortable 2-0 lead after just 17 minutes on Sunday.

However, Neymar picked up a serious injury and Jonathan David and Bafode Diakite put Lille back on level terms after 57 minutes.

Jonathan Bamba then made it 3-2 to Lille in the 69th minute and looked set to hand his side a huge away win.

However, Mbappe added a second goal with three minutes of normal time to play to bring the game level.

After scoring the winner on Sunday, Messi earned his side two days off from training, granted by manager, Christophe Galtier.

As a result, Messi has taken the opportunity to jet back to Barcelona, where he spent the majority of his life before training resumes on Wednesday.
