Following the game, an entirely unwanted record surfaced around star signing Lionel Messi.
Since moving to Paris from Barcelona, the Argentine has struggled, and his performances on the field have reflected this.
According to Get French Football News, his blank against Lorient has ensured that this is his league’s least productive first half of the season.
With 1 goal in 865 minutes of activity, Lionel Messi (34) has had the least productive first half of a club league season of his career.
His transfer to PSG is proving to be a big challenge, not the easy out that some armchair European football fans predicted.
Just before the halftime, Thomas Monconduit gave Lorient, who are now in the relegation zone, a surprising lead, before Sergio Ramos was sent off just 40 minutes after entering the fray.
And it appeared as if he had cost PSG all hope of getting back into the game, only for Icardi to score the game-winning goal in injury time, earning PSG a point in their final game of the year.
Despite the humiliation, a defeat would not have been the end of the world for Mauricio Pochettino, as the Parisians are currently 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1. Managers at PSG, on the other hand, have been known to be fired for far less.
