METZ, France (AP) 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.
