The Argentine nearly got his first goal on 17 minutes after great link-up play with Mbappe on the edge of the box, but his low strike was kept out by Anthony Lopes.
It was one-way traffic in the first half as PSG went in search of the opening goal, with Messi going even closer on 37 minutes with a free-kick that crashed against the upright.
Lyon, meanwhile, were unable to get a hold of the ball for long periods in the first stanza which left Algeria international Islam Slimani isolated against Marquinhos and Prensel Kimpembe.

PSG were given a lifeline just after the hour mark when Gusto was adjudged to have fouled Neymar, who took responsibility and converted the spot-kick to level matters.
With 15 minutes left on the clock, Mauricio Pochettino opted to withdraw Messi for Achraf Hakimi as the Argentine is now three games without a goal for the club.
