Goals from Neymar and Kylian Mbappe helped Paris St Germain stay top of Ligue 1 with a 3-0 win at Toulouse on Wednesday.
Neymar and Mbappe scored both sides of the break as the French champions moved up to 13 points from five games, ahead of Olympique de Marseille and RC Lens on goal difference.
Third-placed Marseille defeated Clermont 1-0 thanks to a Pape Gueye goal, while Lens played their usual attractive football to demolish away Lorient 5-2, with Florian Sotoca scoring twice.

Olympique Lyonnais, with one game under their belt, are fourth on 10 points after beating newly promoted AJ Auxerre 2-1 at home.
In Toulouse, Lionel Messi came close with a low shot after a Neymar pass into the box in the 25th minute, only for his attempt to be tipped over by Maxime Dupe.
Toulouse defended skillfully and threatened at the break, while an inspired dupe twice saved Messi and Kylian Mbappe.
However, there was nothing he could do in the 37th minute as Neymar conceded a beautiful through ball from Messi and shoved the ball home to put PSG ahead.

The Brazilian’s seventh goal this season took his PSG career tally to 109, which put him fourth in the club’s top scorers list alongside Pedro Miguel Pauleta.
Mbappe doubled the tally five minutes into the second half when he used Messi’s cut-back in the box for his fifth league goal.
Even better goalkeepers from Dupe meant Toulouse were still in the game, but Juan Bernat’s stoppage-time goal from close range ended the hosts’ hopes of a comeback.

Neymar was substituted in the 68th minute as coach Christophe Galtier tried to rest the Brazilian striker ahead of the trip to Nantes and next week’s Champions League opener against Juventus.
Elsewhere, Monaco suffered their second defeat as they lost 4-2 at home to Troyes, leaving them 16th in the standings with five points.
Monaco, who have not won in three home games at the Louis II Stadium this season, were down to 10 men after 44 minutes when Guillermo Maripan saw a second yellow card.
