Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
PSG will now face Lille in their next fixture while Montpellier play against Auxerre at home. PSG sit top of Ligue 1 and Montpellier are 8th.
PSG win their first home match of the season 5-2. Mbappe made up for his missed penalty after his low-driven cross was turned into his own net by Sacko. The defender then handled the ball in the box, allowing Neymar to slot to ball home to make it 2-0 before half-time. The Brazilian made it 3-0 quickly in the second period as he headed home a deflected cross from Hakimi. Khazri pulled one back for the visitors but goals from Mbappe and Sanches were enough to secure all three points for PSG, despite a late goal from Tchato.
