Metz, France: Ezequiel Lavezzi fired Paris Saint-Germain to the top of the French league on Friday by scoring the winner in the 3-2 victory over promoted Metz.
   

 

The Argentina forward slid home a rebound in the 83rd minute after Metz goalkeeper Johann Carrasso had denied Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
   
PSG playmaker Javier Pastore opened the scoring by finishing off a counterattack with a chip in the ninth minute.
   
The defending champion doubled its lead with an own goal from Metz defender Gaetan Bussmann, who turned a free kick from Lavezzi into his own net in the 16th.
   
However, PSG blew that two-goal lead when Metz striker Modibo Maiga converted two penalties in the second half.
