Commentary

That's all for now though, goodbye!
That makes it seven wins from seven for PSG in the league and they remain top of the table. Metz, meanwhile, stay in 20th.
Hakimi's 95th-minute winner helps PSG grab a late win. The visitors started sharply as Hakimi drilled in a low finish to give them a quick lead. And they should have added to it: Mbappe missed three clear chances, while Icardi went close. But PSG wilted as the half went on. Metz grew into the game and after a succession of set pieces they equalised through Kouyate's header. PSG never really refound their rhythm in the second half. But when Bronn was sent off late on, they took full advantage as Hakimi netted his second at the death to help them grab a late three points.
90' + 8' FULL TIME: Metz 1-2 PSG
Neymar
Yellow Card
90' + 7' Neymar is also shown a yellow card for his part in the arguments following the winner.
A. Oukidja
Yellow Card
90' + 7' Both teams argue immediately after the goal. Oukidja, in particular, is furious and he's shown a yellow card.
Neymar
Assist
90' + 5' That was a superb assist from Neymar. He could have easily lost his head there - the tension was certainly extremely high. But he kept his composure and threaded a neat pass into Hakimi, who finished clinically to grab all three points. 
A. Hakimi
Goal
90' + 5' HAKIMI! 2-1! PSG win it in the final seconds! Neymar feeds Hakimi inside the area with a crisp pass. Hakimi jinks past a defender before drilling a low finish past Oukidja from eight yards on his weaker left foot! 
90' + 4' Metz now have to try and hold onto this point with just 10 men as the game threatens to boil over!
B. Traoré
V. Pajot
90' + 3' Pajot makes way for Traore as Metz try and waste more time. 
90' + 1' Red card! Metz are reduced to 10 men. Bronn kicks the ball away to slow down the game and receives a second yellow and a red card. Metz manager, Frederic Antonetti, is then sent off for protesting the decision.  
F. Centonze
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Centonze is shown a yellow card after a gentle push on Neymar during an argument. 
90' Three minutes of stoppage time are added as Metz fight to cling onto a precious point.  
89' Pajot nervously hacks Mbappe's cross into the air, but Oukidja bravely sails out to claim it and fend off the danger.
87' Di Maria 20-yard strike takes a deflection, helping it into the arms of Oukidja.
85' Brilliant save! This would have been controversial if it went in. Metz kicked the ball out of play to allow Udol to receive treatment. Instead of returning the ball to Metz though, Mbappe attempts a lob from distance when play restarts, forcing Oukidja into a fine, scrambling save! The home fans are furious now and it's fortunate that Mbappe couldn't find the net.
83' Di Maria takes two extremely wasteful corners. Both feebly bounce towards the near post where Centonze clears. 
J. Draxler
Nuno Mendes
81' An attacking change for PSG. The defender, Mendes, is replaced by Draxler - who will presumably be playing higher up the pitch.
79' Metz continue to hold firm. Neymar attempts to slalom into the box, but his final touch is a little heavy and Pajot thumps it into the stands.  
77' Hakimi tumbles in the box under pressure from Udol, but there wasn't enough in it to warrant a penalty and the referee remains unmoved. 
75' Metz are breaking up the game with plenty of fouls currently and PSG are growing frustrated.  
D. Bronn
Yellow Card
73' Bronn catches Mbappe with a late kick and is a little fortunate to only be shown a yellow card. He certainly caught Mbappe high on the calf there.   
72' PSG have struggled to create chances in the second half. They've taken four shots from outside the box, compared to two from inside - they'll most likely need to show more patience and creativity if they're to find a late winner.  
71' Di Maria's cross is plucked confidently out of the air by Oukidja.
Nuno Mendes
Yellow Card
69' Mendes is shown a yellow card after getting caught out and fouling Boulaya to stop a counter.  
H. Maïga
Yellow Card
68' Maiga is booked after tripping Neymar.  
S. Niakaté
P. Yade
67' The second change sees Yade make way for Niakate.
F. Boulaya
M. Gueye
66' Finally, Gueye goes off for Boulaya on the wing.
N. de Préville
I. Niane
66' Metz make a triple substitution. The first change sees Niane depart with De Preville taking his place up top.  
66' Chance! Neymar scoops a delightful pass over the top to pick out the run of Hakimi. However, the defender can only steer his half-volley well wide from 12 yards.
Ander Herrera
Rafinha
65' Rafinha is replaced in midfield by Herrera.
Á. Di María
G. Wijnaldum
65' Wijnaldum makes way for Di Maria after a quiet game.
64' PSG have still yet to regain their fluency from earlier in the contest. Metz will be growing in optimism that they can get a positive result today.   
62' Mbappe requires treatment following a high foot against him. It looks like he should be okay to continue though.
60' Chance! Metz squander an opportunity on the break. The hosts fly forward and find themselves with an improbable three-on-two! Gueye chips it over the defence in search of Niane, who attempts to scoop it over Hakimi to get clean through - but the defender rises to chest it to safety.  
58' Close! Neymar drifts inside from the left and dummies past Maiga before drilling a low, 20-yard strike just wide of the near post!
56' Metz spring another counter-attack. This time Gueye whips in a dangerous early cross, but Niane can't steer his header on target.
54' Chance! Marquinhos picks out the run of Neymar with a pinpoint diagonal pass. It looks as though Neymar just has to control it before applying the finish, but the ball slips under his boot and away for a goal kick!  
52' Centonze almost wriggles through after a one-two with Niane, but Marquinhos races across to halt the danger.   
50' The first half was an even contest in the end, despite PSG's fast start. Metz managed four shots inside the box, while the visitors produced five.
48' Mbappe gets to the byline and cuts it back for Wijnaldum who fires an 18-yard strike wide of the near post.   
46' Metz kick off the second half. 
PSG took their foot off the pedal halfway through that half, and manager, Mauricio Pochettino will need to completely turn around their mentality in the second half.  
Metz fight back after an early goal to level things heading into the break. PSG looked sharp initially and took a quick lead when Hakimi drilled in following Udol clearing Icardi's effort of the line. And they could have added to their lead: Mbappe missed three clear chances, while Icardi went close too. But PSG visibly faded and lost their way in the half, allowing Metz to gain a foothold. And eventually the pressure told. After a succession of set-pieces the hosts equalised when Kouyate headed in from a corner. It could have got better - with Gueye missing a one-on-one just before half time - but Metz will take a 1-1 score at half time.   
45' + 1' HALF TIME: Metz 1-1 PSG
45' Brilliant save! Metz hit PSG on the break as Maiga fires a quick pass between the centre-backs to unleash Gueye. Gueye finds himself clean through on goal and attempts to lob the onrushing Navas, but the goalkeeper instinctively flicks out an arm and parries it to safety!  
43' The hosts will be looking to frustrate PSG now and keep the scoreline level heading into the interval. 
41' PSG were sleepwalking towards conceding. After a sharp start, they stopped creating chances midway through the half, and Metz have grown into the game and taken full advantage!
M. Gueye
Assist
39' It was an inviting cross by Gueye, and Kouyate showed huge desire to get there ahead of the defence and knock a firm header through Navas' despairing dive.  
B. Kouyaté
Goal
39' KOUYATE! 1-1! Metz equalise just before the break. The hosts force another corner, after slowly building up the pressure. Gueye puts in an outswinging cross and it's met by Kouyate inside the six-yard box, where he plants a powerful header across goal and into the far corner!   
38' Udol's deep free-kick is cleared at the near post by Kimpembe.  
36' Metz will be pleased that they've stemmed the flow of PSG chances, but now they'll need to start working out a way to find an equaliser.
34' Sarr lets fly with an ambitious shot from 40 yards but it sails well over. 
32' Rafinha cuts inside from the right and fires off a shot that Maiga bravely blocks on the edge of the box.  
30' Yade dribbles into the box under pressure from Pereira, before hitting an awkward shot that flicks off Marquinhos and behind for a corner. The resulting set-piece amounts to nothing.    
28' Metz have started to settle a little more into this game, but PSG still look incredibly dangerous in attack.
26' Neymar dances dangerously into the box, but Bronn carefully stays with him before knocking it away from the attacker.
24' Close! Metz almost equalise! Gueye races down the right flank before whipping in an inviting cross for Niane. The delivery arcs behind Niane though, and the striker responds by executing an acrobatic volley that sends the ball flashing inches wide of the far post! That would have been some goal if it was on target.
22' Mbappe forces Oukidja into another fine save, but it wouldn't have counted anyway - the linesman had raised his flag for offside.   
20' Mbappe drills in a low cross that ricochets off Icardi before bouncing harmlessly into the arms of Oukidja.
P. Yade
Yellow Card
19' Yade is booked after chopping into a challenge with Rafinha near the touchline.
19' Chance! Mendes swings in an inviting delivery across the face of goal. Icardi stretches to try and poke it in, but he agonisingly misses the ball!
17' Yade's deep free-kick is headed clear by Marquinhos.   
15' Mbappe's been causing Metz all sorts of problems so far. He's taken two shots while missing three chances.  
13' Mbappe and Icardi work a clever interchange on the edge of the box, before Mbappe drills a low effort wide from 20 yards.
11' Save! Mbappe has a huge chance to double the lead. The attacker latches onto Rafinha's threaded pass, before proceeding to try and round the goalkeeper. However, Oukidja anticipates the move and pounces on the ball at Mbappe's feet!  
9' This has been an excellent start for PSG. They looked unconvincing against Lyon despite their win last time out, but their attack has looked incisive and sharp so far today.   
7' Chance! It's almost two for PSG. Neymar finds Mbappe in space on the edge of the box, and the attacker slices his 20-yard strike high and wide under little pressure.   
A. Hakimi
Goal
5' HAKIMI! 1-0 PSG! The visitors take an early lead. Neymar slips Icardi through on goal with a crisp reverse pass. Icardi proceeds to drink it over the onrushing Oukidja, only for Udol to race back and hack it off the line! However, his clearance runs kindly for Hakimi who drills it in despite a valiant block from Kouyate. The referee took a moment to check it went over the line and then awarded the goal!
3' Metz slice through PSG early on. Maiga sets Gueye free with a delightful throughball, and the winger is away from Mendes! However, he hurries his cross and Kimpembe contorts himself to head clear.     
1' PSG get the first half underway.
The players are emerging from the tunnel and kick off is just seconds away!
Metz have lost their last 10 Ligue 1 games against PSG, their longest run against a single opponent in the top-flight. The last time Metz didn’t lose in Ligue 1 to them was back in August 2007 (0-0 at home).
PSG, on the other hand, make six changes after beating Lyon last time out. The main headline is that Messi isn’t fit enough to be in the squad today. Di Maria, Gueye, Herrera, Kehrer and Donnarumma also drop out with Icardi, Rafinha, Wijnaldum, Pereira, Hakimi and Navas coming in.
Metz make one change to the side that lost to Strasbourg last time out: De Preville makes way for Gueye in attack.
SUBS: Julian Draxler, Idrissa Gueye, Eric Ebimbe, Abdou Diallo, Angel Di María, Leandro Paredes, Ander Herrera, Thilo Kehrer, Gianluigi Donnarumma.
PSG (4-3-3): Keylor Navas; Achraf Hakimi, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; Rafinha, Danilo Pereira, Georginio Wijnaldum; Kylian Mbappe, Mauro Icardi, Neymar.
SUBS: Nicolas de Preville, Warren Tchimbembe, Farid Boulaya, Amine Bassi, Opa Nguette, Sikou Niakate, Boubacar Traore, Sofiane Alakouch, Marc-Aurele Caillard.
METZ (3-4-2-1): Alexandre Oukidja; Dylan Bronn, Kiki Kouyate, Matthieu Udol; Fabien Centoze, Habib Maiga, Vincent Pajot, Papa Ndiaga Yade; Lamine Gueye, Pape Sarr; Ibrahima Niame.
PSG, meanwhile, are top of the table. They have a 100 per cent winning record in the league and – despite concerns over the cohesion between their iconic frontline of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe – they’ll be expecting seven wins from seven today.
Hello and welcome to live commentary of this Ligue 1 fixture between Metz and PSG. The hosts enter this one following a tough start to the season. They’re winless after their first six league games and find themselves bottom of the table – today would be the perfect moment to stun PSG with a win.
