Senegal international Idrissa Gueye featured for the entirety of the game and made five tackles to ensure the Parisians clinched their 10th win of the season.

The victory ensured Thomas Tuchel’s men opened up a 10-point gap at the top of the Ligue 1 table, after garnering 30 points from 13 matches.

Choupo-Moting, who has three goals this season, will hope to maintain his fine form when PSG take on Lille on November 22 after the international break.
