It was another day, another win for PSG on Sunday, as the French powers continue to cruise in Ligue 1 play. This time, things ended with a 4-2 win over Lyon at the Parc de Princes.
But, the biggest highlight of the night for Paris Saint-Germain wasn't a goal from Kylian Mbappe, nor the strikes from Angel Di Maria or Edinson Cavani. Instead, it was Lyon's Fernando Marcal finding the back of the net. Wait, what?

Yup, in case you were confused by our writing above, you now have your answer. In a moment that took over the internet, Marcal recorded a beautiful goal, but the only problem was that it wasn't for his own team.
Have you sever seen an own goal with so much precision? He looked like Neymar putting the ball high into the top corner. In all seriousness, it was an unfortunate mistake for the Lyon player, but one PSG will take any day. That goal helped them up 3-0. While the visitors made things interesting late to cut its deficit to 3-2, Cavani shut the door with his goal in the 79th minute to end things at 4-2.
PSG is now 12 points clear at the top of the standings thanks to a strong performance over the weekend, and of course thanks to Mr. Marcal.
4 goals, three points and more momentum! #PSGOL— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) February 9, 2020
