Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
PSG make it six wins out of six games in Ligue 1, although they were not overly convincing this evening. Two own goals decided the contest as Marcelo and Jeremy Morel put the ball into their own net, although neither defender could do much about it. Lyon had their moments in the final third, being denied a penalty in the first half before Tanguy NDombele struck the bar in the second half. It was not their day in front of either goal.
90' + 3' The referee ends the contest.
90' + 2' OVER! Traore goes for another strike after cutting inside to shoot on his left foot, but he blazes his effort over the bar.
90' + 1' SAVE! Traore spurns a chance of a consolation goal as the ball falls kindly for him in the box, but he tamely hits his strike straight at Areola.
90' There will be two minutes of added time.
90' CLOSE! Mbappe sends Yuri down the flank and the left-back fires the ball to the near post for Cavani. He tries a backheeled finish, but sends the ball just past the post.
88' PSG are taking the pace out of the game by knocking the ball around at the back. It seems they're content with the two goals.
H. Aouar
M. Depay
87' Substitution Memphis Depay Houssem Aouar
J. Morel
Own Goal
86' GOALLLLL!!!! A SECOND OWN GOAL! Lyon don't deserve this as Mbappe raids through and sees his strike well saved by Lopes. However, the ball smacks straight into the leg of Morel and nestles into the back of the net. Two deflected goals have decided the contest this evening. Lyon have played well, but have not had the luck at both ends of the pitch.
85' It's PSG's turn to be stubborn at the back now as the visitors cannot find a way through their defensive lines.
83' Lyon have a lifeline in the contest. Can they bring themselves level in the remaining seven minutes.
Thiago Silva
Yellow Card
81' Thiago Silva brings down Depay and goes into the book.
Anthony Lopes
Penalty Save
79' WHAT A SAVE! The Lyon stopper keeps his side in the game with a brilliant save. Cavani strikes the ball with tremendous power, but the keeper dives to his right to tip the ball onto the bar and is able to claim it as it rebounds next to him.
E. Cavani
Penalty Miss
79' MISS! Cavani smashes his effort towards goal, but Lopes makes a brilliant stop turning the ball onto the bar.
F. Mendy
Yellow Card
79' Mendy goes into the book for his foul on Mbappe.
78' PENALTY TO PSG! Mendy concedes a free-kick then a penalty in the space of a minute. He hauls Mbappe to the ground and the referee points to the spot.
Yellow Card
76' Neymar goes into the book for a foul on Marcelo.
Own Goal
75' GOALLLLLLL!!!! PSG TAKE THE LEAD! Out of nowhere Lyon's resistance is broken as Lo Celso gets the better of Tete on the flank and he sends a low cross towards the near post. Cavani escapes the attention of Marcelo and flicks his strike towards the net and with the aid of a deflection it flies past Lopes. Unfortunate for the visitors, but PSG won't mind.
73' A nasty blow for Areola as he hits his head off the post falling back after claiming Depay's corner.
L. Kurzawa
73' Yuri replaces Kurzawa on the left flank.
G. Lo Celso

C. Martins
T. Ndombèlé
72' NDombele makes way for Martins Pereira.
71' Depay and Fekir combine down the left flank, and although Thiago Silva stops their progress, he concedes a corner.
69' CHANCE! Mendy lifts a cross to the back post from a free-kick and Marcelo meets the ball on the stretch with a headed effort, but Areola makes a comfortable save.
68' OFF THE BAR! From the resulting corner Tousart fails to head his effort on target as he makes contact at the back post. However, the visitors keep the attack alive and NDombele goes for the strike from distance, only to see his effort clatter off the underside of the bar and bounce to safety. So unlucky for Lyon.
67' A loose pass from Motta allows the visitors to break through Cornet. He has space to raid forward and Fekir arriving late on the opposite flank, but Kimpembe does enough to keep the winger contained.
65' CHANCE! Alves cuts inside on his left foot to send a cross into the box. Mbappe glances the ball towards the bottom corner, but Lopes gets down to make the stop.
M. Cornet
M. Díaz
63' Mariano makes way for Cornet for the visitors.
62' WIDE! Cavani fails to connect with Neymar's corner from the left, but the ball deflects kindly back into his path for the strike. The Uruguayan strikes first time on his right foot, only to blast his effort well wide of the target.
61' Neymar has a run at Marcelo down the left flank, but the defender gets across him to stop the run, only to concede a corner in the process.
60' The fluency has not been there from the home side this evening. They've had brief moments of quality, but they have been unable to break down Lyon's resistance yet.
58' Mbappe goes on the charge in the right inside channel and he skips past the challenge of Morel on the slide, but Marcelo comes across to divert the ball behind for a corner.
57' SAVE! Neymar curls his effort over the wall on this occasion, but he fails to beat Lopes, who parries the ball away from the top corner. A smart save from the Lyon keeper.
N. Fekir
Yellow Card
55' Fekir goes into the book for his foul on Neymar.
55' Neymar raids through the middle of the Lyon defence and he shapes to shoot on the edge of the box, only to be tripped by Fekir.
53' Fekir raids forward through the middle of the PSG defence, but he gets stopped on the edge of the box. Mariano tries to take over, but he gets crowded out as well.
52' Lyon are setting their stall out to defend deep and then to hit the home side on the counter. They have the pace to pull off the plan, but they are taking the risk of handing PSG the majority of possession.
50' CHANCE! Fekir wins the ball down the right flank and he raids into the box before shooting low towards the near post. Areola has to get down low to his left to make the stop, but the visitors have a corner.
49' BLOCK! Neymar lines up the strike, but he crashes his effort into the wall, and the visitors are able to clear the danger.
48' Neymar tries to surge through the middle of the Lyon defence, but gets brought down by Marcelo 25 yards from goal.
46' We're underway again in Paris.
The players are back out for the second half, so we should be underway shortly.
A frustrating half for PSG as they were unable to break down the strong resistance of Lyon. Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have been quiet in the first period, with the Brazilian coming close just once. He saw his shot well saved by Anthony Lopes, while the young Frenchman has been denied an opening. At the other end Lyon had a good shout for a penalty turned down when Tanguy NDombele was brought down in the box by Layvin Kurzawa, but the referee was unmoved.
45' The referee ends the first half.
T. Motta
Yellow Card
45' Motta clips Fekir and goes into the book.
44' SAVE! For the first time in the match the Lyon defence are stretched. Neymar has space to shoot on the edge of the box, but Lopes makes the stop.
42' Lyon break with numbers through NDombele and he offloads to Mariano. The striker goes for the first time pass to Fekir, but he overhits the ball straight to Areola. A wasted opportunity.
40' Neymar attempts to beat the challenge of Traore down the left flank, but the winger ensures that he brings down the Brazilian after missing the first tackle.
37' PSG win a corner and Neymar floats the ball to the back post, but Thiago Silva can only loop his header into the air and Lopes makes a comfortable claim.
36' Alves breaks down the right inside channel and instead of shooting he cuts the ball back. NDombele diverts it away from Mbappe, while on the edge of the box Traore blocks Kurzawa's attempted strike.
35' The tempo has just been a tad slow from the home side in the final third. They may need to increase their urgency to find the breakthrough.
33' PSG break with pace down the right inside channel and Draxler makes the forward run, only to be edged out by Morel on the byline.
31' Draxler lifts his boot extremely high in the air to latch on to Neymar's lofted pass. He's extremely fortunate he did not connect with Morel's head. That was close.
30' OVER! Fekir lines up a strike with his left foot from distance after being allowed to raid forward, but he curls his effort over the bar.
29' Neymar cannot get an inch in the final third as he gets tackled by Marcelo on the edge of the box. The defending has been excellent from Lyon in the opening third of the match.
27' Mariano is back for Lyon and he does his defensive duties by heading Neymar's corner away from danger. Everyone's doing their job for the visitors to stymie Emery's men.
25' Lopes does brilliantly at the back for Lyon as he races off his line to cut off Rabiot's throughball for Mbappe. The keeper read the danger and beat the forward on the slide.
23' Mbappe has space for the first time, but his offload to Neymar in the final third goes astray.
22' Tousart is the next Lyon man to perform well at the back as he stands up Mbappe before clearing the danger from inside the box.
21' The pace has not been there from the home side in the early stages as the visitors have been defending the flanks and the edge of their box extremely well.
19' Tete does extremely well down the flank as he stands up to Neymar and times his challenge to perfection to dispossess the Brazilian.
16' SAVE! Lopes has to scramble across towards his near post as Neymar tries to squeeze his corner into the net, but the keeper makes the stop.
14' Mariano goes for the long drive from distance after Lyon win a free-kick, but he fires his effort well wide of the post.
12' OVER! Lyon switch off at the back and Neymar sends a low ball into the box, but Thiago Silva meeting it on the half-volley, sending his effort over the bar from close range.
10' The home side have had a slow start to the game. Neymar has not been involved as of yet, while Mbappe has touched the ball only once. That will change in due course.
8' SAVE! Depay has space on the left flank and he cuts back to shoot on his right foot, but Areola gets down well to make the stop.
7' PENALTY SHOUT! The visitors want a penalty as NDombele is brought down in the box by Kurzawa, but the referee dismisses their appeal. That looked an excellent shout the defender certainly made contact.
6' Alves looks for the long ball over the top for Cavani and he almost gets the better of Marcelo, but the defender does enough to win possession, fending off the Uruguayan.
5' Lyon break on the counter through Mendy and he sends the ball out wide to Mariano then Traore, but the winger sends the ball straight through to Areola. A slight miscommunication there.
2' A slow start to the game from both sides as they attempt to settle into a rhythm.
1' We're underway in Paris.
The players are out on the pitch so we should be underway shortly.
FLASHBACK! PSG won this fixture 2-1 last season as goals from Adrien Rabiot and Draxler secured the comeback win after Alexandre Lacazette had put Lyon ahead early in the contest.
Lyon have made four changes from their draw against Limassol during the week. Bertrand Traore, Ferland Mendy, Tanguy NDombele and Kenny Tete all come into the fold this evening.
PSG have made two change from their win over Celtic. Presnel Kimpembe and Julian Draxler come into the side to replace Marquinhos and Marco Verratti. Edinson Cavani will lead the line supported by the trio of Neymar, Mbappe and Draxler.
Lyon subs: Aouer, Rafael, Gorgelin, Marcal, Cornet, Martins Pereira, Diakhaby.
LYON (4-2-3-1): Lopes; Tete, Marcelo, Morel, Mendy; Tousart, NDombele; Traore, Fekir, Depay; Mariano.
PSG subs: Marquinhos, Lo Celso, Nkunku, Yuri, Trapp, Meunier, Lucas.
PSG (4-2-3-1): Areola; Alves, Thiago Silva, Kimpembe, Kurzawa; Motta, Rabiot; Draxler, Mbappe, Neymar, Cavani.
The team news has been announced and we'll start with the home side.
Lyon will have their work cut out this evening to preserve their unbeaten record. Bruno Genesio's men have played well thus far this term, recording victories over Strasbourg, Rennes and Guingamp. However, they were held during their week in their Europa League clash against Apollon Limassol.
The addition of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe has made an already imperious team downright fearsome in the final third. They brushed aside Celtic during the week in the Champions League, putting five past the Bhoys. That followed a 5-1 demolition of Metz in their last Ligue 1 outing, with all of the big three getting on the scoresheet.
PSG have made an imperious start to the season by winning all five of their league matches this season. Unai Emery's men already sit on the summit of the table, although they have Monaco for company at the moment.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Ligue 1 clash between PSG and Lyon at the Parc des Princes.
