Commentary

Strasbourg will be so annoyed not to have picked up a point from the match. They did all the hard work during regulation time, but a lapse of concentration leaving Neymar unchecked inside the box is what cost them in the end. It just proves the old saying: it's not over, until it's over.
Just as we were resigned to witnessing our first 0-0 draw of the season, it all came down to a Neymar stunner in stoppage time, which ended up being the difference between the two teams. A second Neymar stoppage time goal was denied by the VAR, but it didn't matter in the end, as PSG were able to pick up the three points.
90' + 6' FULL TIME: PSG 1 STRASBOURG 0
90' + 5' SURELY NOT! Neymar runs it into the box and finds the back of the net for his second goal in stoppage time. The referee is not so sure and sends it up to the VAR. The decision is handed down that Neymar was offside when he took possession of the ball. NO GOAL!
M. Verratti

46' SECOND HALF - Strasbourg kick off in the middle to get us back under way for the second half.

45' + 4' Lala brings in the set piece to the centre of the box, as Kone rises up with the header but it is too high going over the crossbar.

35' Although PSG have been dangerous for most of the game, they haven't really troubled Sels as yet.

4' Neymar threads it through for Sarabia inside the box, but it goes past him and Sels is able to make a simple save for Strasbourg.
2' All eyes will be on the returning Neymar today, with 51 goals in 58 games, in his PSG career to date.
1' FIRST HALF - PSG kick off through Neymar and we are under way.
Neymar is making his first appearance of the season for PSG, having recovered from injury to play twice for Brazil in the international break. The forward was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona but that did not materialise and he is back in action for the Ligue 1 champions today.

PSG SUBS: Sergio Rico (GK), Mauro Icardi, Presnel Kimpembe, Ander Herrera, Nianzou Kouassi, Leandro Paredes, Thomas Meunier.
PSG STARTING XI (4-2-3-1): Keylor Navas (GK); Colin Dagba, Thiago Silva (c), Abdou Diallo, Layvin Kurzawa; Marco Verratti, Idrissa Gueye; Angel Di Maria, Neymar, Pablo Sarabria; Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. 
Strasbourg have not had the ideal start to the season, sitting in 18th position on the table with only three points banked from their season so far. To make things worse, they have not beaten PSG in their last 22 games, with their last victory coming all the way back in December 1996.
PSG are sitting pretty at the moment on top of the table, with nine points out of a possible twelve. They may see this one as a danger game, as they have not been able to register a win their last two games against Strasbourg.
Welcome to Parc des Princes for the match between Paris Saint-Germain and Strasbourg.
