LIONEL MESSI was hauled off at HALF-TIME against defending French champions Lille.
The Argentine started up front for Paris Saint-Germain in Kylian Mbappe's absence.
But he failed to make an impact as he strolled around the pitch at the Parc des Princes.
The poor performance could be linked to a muscle injury he picked up earlier this week.
Messi missed training for PSG yesterday, but was declared fit enough to start.
He was hooked at half-time after failing to muster a shock on target and he was replaced by fellow countryman Mauro Icardi, who returns fresh off the back of a public row with his wife Wanda.

Five Ligue 1 appearances and the 34-year-old has NO goals or assists to show for it.
He does, however, have three goals in the Champions League group stages.
