Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye! 
That win takes PSG top of the table on goal difference for now, with Lyon and Lille still yet to play this weekend. Their attention now turns to the Champions League and their first leg round of 16 tie with Barcelona on Tuesday. Nice stay in 13th and Ursea will be hoping his side can bounce back next time out when they travel to Marseille.
Goals from Draxler and Kean help PSG to a 2-1 win over Nice. They broke the deadlock after Kehrer played a great cross into the six-yard box which Icardi struck against the woodwork, but Draxler followed in to give them the lead. Five minutes into the second half, Marquinhos gave the ball away in his own box and Lopes fired Nice level. Gouiri hit the bar for the visitors before Kean headed in from close range to seal the win.
90' + 2' FULL-TIME: PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN 2-1 NICE.
90' + 1' Mbappe drives down the left once again and it looks like he's run out of space as two Nice defenders close him down. He manages to squeeze past them though before his cross deflects out for a corner.
Ander Herrera
Yellow Card
89' Herrera slides in late on Lopes to earn himself a booking.
K. Mbappé
Yellow Card
87' Mbappe picks up the first yellow card of the game after he clips the back of Claude Maurice's legs to stop the break.
85' CHANCE! Nice take the corner short and Claude Maurice lifts the cross into the box from the left. He picks out Todibo at the far post, but he can't keep his header down and it sails over the bar.
Danilo Pereira
L. Paredes
83' Paredes is also making way, with Pereira on in his place.
Ander Herrera
M. Kean
83' There's another double change for PSG now, and it's the goalscorer, Kean, that's being taken off, with Herrera on for him.
81' Mbappe touches the ball to Kean and he dribbles around Todibo on the edge of the box before sliding it through to Icardi. His touch takes it away from him though and Benitez rushes off his line to collect it.
79' Nice just can't keep hold of the ball when they get out of their own half at the moment. Boudaoui plays a good throughball forward to set Lees-Melou on the attack, but his first touch lets him down and PSG win it back.
Pablo Sarabia
J. Draxler
77' Draxler is also being taken off, with Sarabia on in his place.
M. Bakker
L. Kurzawa
77' PSG have been waiting a long time to make a double change and they finally can after the goal. Kurzawa is the first to make way, with Bakker replacing him.
M. Icardi
Assist
76' Icardi does well to get on the end of Mbappe's cross as he leaps to meet it at the far post and send it back into the middle to set up Kean for the goal.
M. Kean
Goal
76' KEAN SCORES! None of the Nice defenders spot his run through the middle of the box and he reacts quickly when Icardi plays it back across the box as he nods it in from close range. 2-1 PSG!
75' Paredes cuts inside from the left and drills a shot across goal which is blocked by Todibo. The loose ball falls to Icardi and he hits it first time, but Saliba is there for Nice this time to make the block.
73' Marquinhos has committed five errors leading to a goal in Ligue 1, including in his last two against Nice (October 2019 and today).
71' Nice are keeping the ball well at the moment, but they just can't seem to find a way into the final third. PSG are keeping their shape well and stopping the visitors from getting into the box.
69' PSG are still finding a lot of space down the left as Mbappe squares the ball into the middle. Icardi does well to control it under pressure but lays it off to Draxler as his back's to goal. There's too much on it though and Nice come away with it.
67' The space opens up for Boudaoui just outside the box so he decides to have a go from range. He drills his shot on goal, but it's straight down the middle at Navas, who gets down to hold onto it.
65' Nice switch play out to Lopes on the right and he has support up with him as he breaks forward. It's a poor pass into Claude Maurice though and PSG come away with it.
63' SAVE! The game is starting to open up now as both teams commit men forward to try and get ahead. Nobody picks up Kehrer's run down the right and he touches it onto Kean. He drills his shot on goal, but Benitez gets a strong hand to it.
61' OFF THE BAR! It's a quick break from Nice and Maolida plays in Gouiri on the left of the box. Navas is beaten as the shot is fired over his head, but it bounces back off the crossbar and Lopes can't turn in the rebound.
60' PSG are on the attack again, but they're still finding it difficult to get in behind Nice still. Kurzawa fizzes a low cross into the middle from the left, but no one's there to get on the end of it.
58' CHANCE! PSG break quickly after a Nice attack, with Mbappe leading it down the left again. He steps away from Boudaoui to curl a shot towards the far post from the edge of the box but a slight deflection takes it wide.
56' Claude Maurice does brilliantly to get away from Kurzawa as he drifts into the box from the right and keep the ball in play at the byline. He's eventually crowded off it by Kimpembe before he can put a cross in though.
54' PSG just can't find a way in behind Nice, so Mbappe decides to have a go from outside the box after he pulls away from Pelmard. He curls his effort towards the far top corner but sends it high over the bar.
52' Nice are keeping the pressure on the hosts here as they push forward again. Claude Maurice floats a cross into the far post from the edge of the box, looking for Gouiri, but it's cut out by Kimpembe.
Rony Lopes
Goal
50' NICE ARE LEVEL! It's a poor clearance by Marquinhos as he plays it straight to Lopes on the opposite side of the box. He takes a touch before drilling his shot over Navas and into the roof of the net. 1-1!
49' CLOSE! Lopes drives forward down the right before cutting into the box. He wrongfoots Kurzawa to create a pocket of space for himself before curling a shot towards the far corner, but it's just too high.
47' PSG have made a fast start to the second half with Kurzawa pushing forward down the left. He drills a low cross into the far post, where Icardi flicks it on, but Todibo just does enough to make the block.
46' Nice get us back underway for the second half!
Pochettino will be pleased with how his side have played so far, but he will want to see a much more clinical performance from them after the break if they want to seal the win. As for Nice, they had a lot of early possession, but couldn't take advantage of it and Ursea will want to see a bigger attacking threat in the second half.
PSG take a 1-0 lead over Nice into half-time. They got the breakthrough when Kehrer played a dangerous cross into the six-yard box and Icardi hit the woodwork with his effort. Draxler followed in, latched onto the rebound and fired in to put his side ahead. The hosts have created more chances for themselves, but neither goalkeeper has been called upon too often.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN 1-0 NICE.
44' Lopes has space to run into down the right, and Todibo picks him out. He squares it to Claude Maurice, who hits it first time, but there's not enough curl on it and he sends it into the side netting at the near post.
42' CHANCE! It's well worked down the right by Nice and Claude Maurice pulls the ball back to Gouiri on the edge of the box from the right. He hits the shot first time but leans back as he does and fires his effort high over the bar.
41' Nice are keeping the ball better now and are patiently playing out from the back. They're keeping PSG penned back in their own half, but all of their possession is in front of the hosts at the moment.
39' CHANCE! Paredes floats a lovely cross into the middle and Mbappe times his run perfectly to stay onside as he gets between the two central defenders. He goes for the volley but scuffs the shot and it's a comfortable save for Benitez.
37' PSG don't clear their lines properly and the ball falls for Lees-Melou on the edge of the box. He sets himself before hitting the shot, but Kimpembe's block helps it wide of the goal for a corner.
35' Navas sets PSG on a quick counter-attack and they switch play out to Mbappe on the left again. He tries to thread his pass through to Icardi in the middle, but it's blocked by two Nice defenders.
33' It's a great cross from Mbappe on the left which catches out the Nice defenders and falls for Kean at the far post. He slices at his shot though and sends it well wide of the target, much to his frustration.
32' Kamara drives forward down the left for Nice again and he pulls the ball back for Gouiri on the edge of the box. His first touch is heavy though which allows Marquinhos to get across and intercept it.
30' Nice just can't get out of their own half at the moment and are being penned back on the edge of their box. They're keeping their shape well though and making it difficult for PSG to get into the final third.
28' Lopes floats a brilliant cross into the box from the edge of the area to pick out Gouiri, who brings it down on his chest. Three PSG defenders crowd around him though and he eventually commits a foul on Marquinho when trying to control it.
26' Gueye has pulled up with what looks like a muscle problem so PSG have put the ball out so he can receive some treatment. He's quickly back to his feet and it looks like he'll be able to continue for now.
24' There are loud shouts from the Nice players who want a penalty after their think it struck Marquinhos on the arm. He made the block with his chest though and the referee waves for play to continue.
J. Draxler
Goal
22' PSG LEAD! Kehrer initially plays a dangerous cross into the six-yard box and Icardi slides onto it at the far post but sends his effort against the woodwork. Draxler follows it in though and fires his shot into the back of the net. 1-0 PSG!
21' Another pocket of space opens up for Mbappe as he wrongfoots Pelmard and cuts inside from the left once again. He chooses to go for goal this time, but his effort is straight at Benitez, who holds onto it on his second attempt.
19' PSG are trying to make something happen down the left as Paredes backheels the ball into Mbappe's path. He's being tracked the whole way by Pelmard though and the defender manages to come away with it.
17' Lopes thinks he's fouled, but the referee lets play continue as Kimpembe picks out Mbappe's run down the left. He chooses to square it to Icardi instead of going for goal himself and Boudaoui intercepts it.
15' PSG are struggling to keep hold of the ball at the moment as the visitors continue to patiently push forward and stay on the front foot. Gueye picks out Draxler, but his pass to Mbappe is cut out by Boudaoui.
13' PSG are unbeaten in their last nine home games against Nice in Ligue 1 (W6 D3), with their last loss to them in the top-flight coming in November 2009 (0-1).
11' Maolida's first touch is poor but he manages to nick it back from Paredes to square it to Lopes on the right. He cuts inside before curling a shot towards goal, but the whistle has gone as there was a foul by Maolida.
9' Nice are keeping the pressure on PSG here with Lopes weaving between their midfielders to win a free-kick in a dangerous position just outside the box. Boudaoui steps up to take it, but nothing comes of the set-piece. 
7' Kamara cuts back inside to whip a cross into the box from the left and he's looking to pick out Maolida in the middle of the box. He can't beat the first man though and Marquinhos clears his lines.
5' Pelmard makes a driving run down the right for Nice and he has support up with him. Mbappe tracks back to help out his defenders and manages to nick the ball back as well as win a free-kick.
3' Draxler picks out Mbappe with a good through and none of the Nice defenders have spotted the Frenchman's run. He cuts inside to get past Todibo before getting his shot away but sends it high and wide of the far post.
1' There's an early chance for PSG as the ball loops up to Paredes on the edge of the box. He hits the shot first time but ends up dragging at the shot, sending it wide of the near post.
1' Icardi gets the game underway for PSG!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away.
PSG have won their last five home games in Ligue 1, the longest current run in the league. They've kept a clean sheet in all of those matches, which is the longest run in the top-flight and the longest for PSG since September-November 2016 (six).
Adrian Ursea was clearly impressed with his side's performance against Angers in the league last weekend as he names an unchanged line-up for today.
Mauricio Pochettino makes four changes to his team after their win over Marseille last time out in the league. Navas returns from injury to start in goal, with Kehrer, Draxler and Kean also coming in. They are without key players though as Angel Di Maria limped off with a muscle problem in that game and Neymar misses out after picking up an injury against Caen on Wednesday.
NICE SUBS: Robson Bambu, Stanley N'Soki, Malik Sellouki, Morgan Schneiderlin, Flavius Daniliuc, Dan Ndoye, Yoan Cardinale, Kephren Thuram, Alexis Trouillet.
NICE STARTING XI (4-3-3): Walter Benitez; Andy Pelmard, Jean-Clair Todibo, William Saliba, Hassane Kamara; Alexis Claude Maurice, Hichem Boudaoui, Pierre Lees-Melou; Rony Lopes, Myziane Maolida, Amine Gouiri.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN SUBS: Ander Herrera, Danilo Pereira, Pablo Sarabia, Xavi Simons, Edouard Michut, Abdou Diallo, Sergio Rico, Alessandro Florenzi, Mitchel Bakker.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN STARTING XI (4-3-3): Keylor Navas; Thilo Kehrer, Marquinhos, Presnel Kimpembe, Layvin Kurzawa; Idrissa Gueye, Leandro Paredes, Julian Draxler; Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi, Kylian Mbappe.
PSG have the chance to go top of the table with a win today and come into this match having lost just one of their previous 12 in all competitions (W9 D2), but they have won their last three without conceding a goal. They face a Nice side that have won three of their last five in all competitions (L2), including their last two outings against Angers and Nimes.
