Commentary

That's all from us, we hope you enjoyed the game. Until the next one, it's goodbye.
A point is no loss to PSG, who have been uncatchable at the top of Ligue 1 for quite some time now, but for Troyes, it's another vital step away from the drop zone. They stay 15th, but are now six points clear of the bottom three, and are all but safe following a fantastic performance in the French capital.
Tardieu's panenka penalty secured a point for Troyes, and their captain was instrumental throughout, having two shots on target, making two key passes, and completing more touches, passes and crosses than any of his teammates! Leadership, personified from the 30-year-old.
What a result for Troyes!! That early penalty, calmly dispatched by Tardieu, locked up the sides at 2-2, and the visitors hung on to claim a vital point at the home of the champions! VAR came to their rescue to disallow a Neymar winner that had been given by the on-field referee, but Mauricio Pochettino's PSG side couldn't break down Estac and frustratingly record their third consecutive draw!
90' + 5' FULL-TIME: PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN 2-2 TROYES.
90' + 4' BLOCKED!!! PSG build late pressure and Mbappe crosses to the far post. Messi meets it with a sweet, 2002 Zidane-esque volley, but Conte blocks it away for the visitors!
90' + 3' The crowd rises as PSG embark on a late surge forward, but after Gharbi is crowded out, Hakimi releases Messi, but he can't keep the ball in play and it goes out for a goal kick.
90' + 1' OFF THE BAR!!! Messi plays a quick one-two with Wijnaldum on the edge of the box, and upon getting the return ball, fires a shot which clips the top of the bar on its way over!!
90' We're into four minutes of added time as PSG look to find a later winner to this game.
T. Dingomé
R. Kouamé
89' The booked Kouame comes off for Troyes, replaced by Tristan Dingome.
I. Gharbi
Á. Di María
89' Di Maria is the next to come off for PSG, replaced by youngster Ismael Gharbi.
87' Balde takes the ball on the turn from a Troyes throw-in and looks to beat Navas, but his low effort from the edge of the box isn't the most powerful and the PSG keeper holds it with ease.
86' SAVED!!! Mbappe cuts in from the left and fires a dipping shot to the near post, who swerves in front of Moulin before he manages to parry and hold it!
85' Mbappe flicks Messi's pass on to Di Maria, who shoots from the edge of the box but drags his effort well wide of Moulin's goal!
84' WIDE!!! Di Maria whips a fizzing cross into the danger area, and Marquinhos rises to meet it at the back post. Their first-half goal combination isn't replicated though, as the PSG captain glances his effort just inches wide of the upright!
R. Kouamé
Yellow Card
81' PSG counter at speed as Di Maria races through midfield, but he's clipped late by Kouame as he releases Neymar and play is brought back for the foul, with Kouame shown a yellow card.
80' Troyes almost create shooting space in the box for the substitute Balde, but Marquinhos calmly steps in to win possession and come away with it for PSG.
G. Wijnaldum
M. Verratti
78' Verratti's creativity has been stifled by the Estac midfield, and Georginio Wijnaldum comes on for him now.
Mama Baldé
I. Ugbo
77' Ugbo's first-half goal got Troyes back into the game, and he's withdrawn now for Mama Balde, who could perhaps find the visitors a winner!
I. Gueye
Danilo Pereira
77' PSG make their first change, bringing off Danilo for Idrissa Gueye.
Y. Salmier
Y. Larouci
77' Larouci has been superb down the left for Troyes, but comes off now for Yoann Salmier.
76' Messi plays in Mbappe down the left, but he's closed down and brilliantly dispossessed by Biancone, who comes away with it for Estac!
75' Neymar cuts inside to create shooting space to himself, but his eventual shot doesn't have enough power on it to trouble Moulin, who saves with ease.
75' Di Maria, Messi and Mbappe all look to turn and shoot inside the Troyes box, but the visitors' back five holds firm and prevents all three forwards in quick succession.
73' WIDE!!! Troyes come forwartd at speed, as Kouame races through the middle. Kabore's in acres of space to his right, but he chooses to shoot and curls an effort just around the outside of the left post!
72' Larouci brings Di Maria to ground as the winger looks to spark a counter-attack, and the ex-Liverpool left-back is lucky to avoid a booking there.
70' PSG have kept the ball well all game, averaging 61.8 per cent possession, but they've offered very little attacking threat in this second half and are yet to register a shot on target.
68' Messi attempts a cross for Neymar to latch onto at the back post, but its nowhere near the Brazilian and goes behind for a goal kick.
Neymar
Yellow Card
66' Neymar reacted badly to Ripart's challenge and set the melee in motion, and is booked for the sixth time in just seven Ligue 1 games.
R. Ripart
Yellow Card
66' A coming together between Neymar and Ripart causes a fracas between the two sides, and the Troyes winger is booked for the initial foul.
63' Messi's corner finds Kimpembe on the penalty spot, but the centre-back can't get his header on target as it flies over the crossbar.
62' Messi's long-range throughball plays in Mbappe, who has barely touched the ball before a sliding Moulin blocks it away, and the offside flag goes up against PSG.
61' Larouci plays a quick one-two with Chavalerin and looks to slide a cross in, but Kimpembe puts it behind for a Troyes corner!
60' WIDE!!! After Danilo wins the ball in Troyes territory, Messi picks it up in the box and shoots for the far corner. His side-footed effort beats Moulin, but beats the post too and rolls just wide of the target!
59' NO GOAL!! Mbappe does clearly impede Palmer-Brown from jumping for that high ball, and so Neymar's excellent finish is disallowed and it's as you were at 2-2!
58' We're going upstairs to check the contact between Mbappe and Palmer-Brown, and this potential PSG winner could be chalked off here!
57' BALL IN THE NET!!! PSG look to be back in the lead!!! Mbappe gets to a long ball ahead of Palmer-Brown, and Neymar picks up the ball before rifling it into the far corner!!!
55' PSG look rattled at the moment as another poor touch from Mendes almost sets Ugbo free again. The hosts' defence is looking shaky, particularly since Troyes have scored twice to come back into the game.
54' A quick VAR check sees no foul given against Troyes, and they avoid conceding a penalty so soon after scoring one themselves!
53' Hakimi collides with Moulin after what looks to be a shove from Conte, and PSG may have a potential penalty here!
52' Neymar barges into Kabore, but the Troyes wing-back lands on his leg and the PSG winger looks to have been injured from that needless challenge!
51' Kimpembe takes an inside ball and looks to beat Ripart down the right, but is fouled by the man he brought down for the penalty!
F. Tardieu
Penalty Goal
49' GOOOOAAAALLLL!!! How cool!!!! Tardieu waltzes up to the ball and panenka's his penalty beyond Navas and into the net!!! 2-2, game on, and Troyes are fired up in this second half!
47' PENALTY!!! Ripart cuts inside Kimpembe in the box and is dragged to the floor by the PSG centre-back! The referee points to the spot, and Troyes have a chance to level the scores here!
46' Troyes kick off, and we are back underway in Paris!
The sides are back out for the second half, and PSG will want to add a few more goals to their tally in the next 45 minutes!
Di Maria set up the first goal, and has recorded three key passes as well as a shot on target. He's made two good crosses too, as well as three tackles, and has won two thirds of his duels so far.
A cracking half of football sees PSG enter half-time with a one-goal lead. Marquinhos' early goal sent the champions on their way, and Neymar's ice-cold penalty doubled the lead not long after. However, Troyes have been threatening though, and got a reward when Ugbo pounced to lash in their first goal! PSG need to step up if they're to put this game to bed!
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN 2-1 TROYES.
45' + 1' OVER!!! Di Maria's corner is swung in viciously, and looks to be heading for goal before Moulin parries it over the bar!
45' + 1' SAVED!!! Mbappe pinches the ball from Kouame and cuts inside towards the centre of the box. He looks to beat Moulin with a curling finish, but the Troyes keeper tips it around the post!
45' We'll play a minute of added time to close out the first half.
43' Biancome has two goes at Neymar and finally brings down the winger after he dribbles past him twice. He's won three fouls already, the Brazilian, and conceded two himself.
42' Troyes come forward and spread it wide to Ripart, but the winger slips as he swings his foot to cross and the ball goes out!
41' Chavalerin heads a ball from a free-kick onto Palmer-Brown, but the American defender controls it with his hand and is penalised on the edge of the PSG box.
39' WIDE!!! Mendes powers down the left before cutting inside. He cuts the ball back to Messi, who has a go from the edge of the box, but he drags his effort wide of the far post!!
37' BALL IN THE NET!!! A poor defensive ball from Troyes goes straight to Mbappe, who tees up Messi. His low shot strikes the post, and Neymar puts in the rebound!!! The Brazilian is offside though, and so the goal will not count!
36' Troyes have earned more points in 16 Ligue 1 games this season under Bruno Irles (19) than in 19 games under Laurent Batlles (17). Estac are on an average of 1.19 points per game with the former Quevilly Rouen coach.
34' Tardieu swings a cross into the box from a Troyes free-kick, and despite Navas coming for the ball and missing it, Palmer-Brown can't direct his header on target and it flashes over the bar!
32' WIDE!!!! Di Maria dinks a chipped ball over the top to Messi at the far post. He sprints onto the ball and looks to beat the keeper at his near post, but can only find the side-netting!
32' What a strike that was from Ugbo, and that sloppily-conceded goal should wake the hosts up a bit, as they've been showboating and barely getting out of second gear at the moment.
I. Ugbo
Goal
30' GOOOAAAALLL!!! Troyes have one back!!! An under pressure Mendes is intercepted by Ugbo, who strolls into the box and smashes a shot across Navas and into the far corner!!! 2-1, and Troyes' pressing pays off with a goal!
29' Messi sprays a pass across the box to Di Maria, but he can't quite lay it off to Neymar and Troyes clear.
27' Paris have won 18 of their last 20 Ligue 1 home games, drawing two, and are well on their way to number 19 now.
Neymar
Penalty Goal
25' GOAAALLL!!! Neymar buries the penalty in the corner, past the unmoved Moulin, and PSG race into a 2-0 lead from 12 yards!
24' Mbappe is down following that awkward challenge, and looks to have rolled an ankle. Worrying signs for PSG's golden boy.
23' PENALTY GIVEN!!! Mbappe gets free of the Troyes defence but Palmer-Brown slides in clumsily and brings the PSG forward down. A clear penalty if ever there was one, and a chance for PSG to double their lead.
22' Troyes have won just one of their last five Ligue 1 games, though it was their most recent one, 3-0 against Lille.
20' Tardieu tries his luck from distance, but drags it well wide, however a deflection off Marquinhos takes it behind for a corner!
19' Kabore gets around Mendes and looks to cross in the box, but Verratti slides in with a fantastic sliding challenge to win the ball cleanly!
17' Conte surges down the left on the counter for Troyes, and beats Hakimi. He looks to play in Ugbo, but goes down under pressure from Kimpembe and the chance dissipates.
16' Ripart is sandwiched between challenges from Kimpembe and Verratti as he looks to make shooting space, and is down, but does look okay to carry on.
14' After Marquinhos heads away Ripart's cross, Kouame looks to play him back in, but he skews an effort wide from a tight angle.
13' Two consecutive Troyes corners are swung into the box, but Navas meets both with strong punches clear.
11' WIDE!!! A lazy clearance from Verratti goes straight to Larouci. He tees up Ripart, who shoots wide, but it takes a deflection and goes behind for a corner!
10' PSG have won 27 of their last 29 home games against promoted sides, with their last defeat coming in May 2010 against Montpellier.
9' Danilo finds Mbappe in the box, who flicks it onto Di Maria with a sweet backheel, but the Argentinian can't get to the ball before Conte does!
8' Before this game, 45 per cent of the goals scored by South American players in Ligue 1 this season had been scored by Paris players. Neymar leads the way with 11, and Marquinhos has just got his fifth!
Á. Di María
Assist
6' After going close with a shot moments earlier, Di Maria turned provider there with a pinpoint cross that gave Troyes' defenders no chance, and laid it on a plate for his captain!
Marquinhos
Goal
6' GOOOAAALLL!!! PSG take an early lead!!! Di Maria swings a cross in from the right, and PSG have three men in the six-yard box waiting for it. It falls to Marquinhos, who strokes the ball beyond a hapless Moulin and into an empty net! 1-0 already, and the champions are off and running!
6' SAVED!!! PSG work the ball well and Verratti plays in Di Maria. He cuts back and curls a beautiful shot towards the far post, forcing a good right-handed save from a diving Moulin!
4' CHANCE!!! PSG's defence goes to sleep and allows the ball to bounce all the way through, but Palmer-Brown and Biancone both mistime their shots and the ball bounces wide!
3' PSG have won 68 per cent of their 19 matches against Troyes in Ligue 1, their second-highest ratio against a team faced at least 15 times after Caen (69 per cent). PSG have won each of their last eight games against Estac.
3' Larouci beats Hakimi down the left but is clipped on his way through by the PSG left-back, and Troyes have a chance to cross into the box here.
1' Mbappe kicks off for PSG, and we are underway at the Parc des Princes!
The teams head out of the tunnel, and we're almost ready for kick-off in Paris!
Troyes’ top-scorer Xavier Chavalerin has just five goals however, as the visitors set up in a 5-4-1 formation, clearly looking to limit the attacking threat of PSG’s star forwards.
Kylian Mbappe is way out in front in the Ligue 1 scoring charts, with 24, however he’ll have to produce some scintillating form to match his best season for PSG, in which he scored 33. However, with the attacking trio of Messi, Neymar and Di Maria for this match, he couldn’t ask for a better support act.
TROYES SUBS: Sebastien Renot, Tristan Dingome, Yoann Touzghar, Dylan Chambost, Yoann Salmier, Oualid El Hajjam, Mama Balde, Mamadou Camara, Derek Mazou-Sacko.
TROYES (5-4-1): Jessy Moulin; Issa Kabore, Giulian Biancone, Erik Palmer-Brown, Abdu Conte, Yasser Larouci; Renaud Ripart, Florian Tardieu, Rominigue Kouame, Xavier Chavalerin; Ike Ugbo.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN SUBS: Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos, Juan Bernat, Georginio Wijnaldum, Ander Herrera, Thilo Kehrer, Idrissa Gueye, El Chadaille Bitshiabu, Ismael Gharbi.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN (4-2-3-1): Keylor Navas; Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Danilo Pereira, Marco Verratti; Angel di Maria, Lionel Messi, Neymar; Kylian Mbappe.
Estac's 3-0 win over former champions Lille last time out propelled them away from the relegation zone, and they’re now all but safe, but a point or three against the champions would be one hell of a result to go towards their survival bid.
Hosts PSG have already won the title at a canter, and have the chance to extend their current unbeaten run to seven. However, their last two games have seen draws with Lens and Strasbourg respectively, and so the Ligue 1 champions will be hoping to get back to winning ways against 15th-placed Troyes.
Hello, and welcome to live coverage of this Ligue 1 match, between Paris-Saint Germain and Troyes from the Parc des Princes.
