On Sunday, Kylian Mbappe scored twice as Paris St. Germain cruised to a 4-1 away victory over Olympique Lyonnais, giving them their second victory of the new Ligue 1 campaign.
Mbappe scored the fourth goal soon before halftime after converting a fourth-minute penalty kick to give PSG eight points from four games, moving them into second place, two points behind Monaco.
Following the penalty kick, which was given when Corentin Tolisso, the home team’s captain, scythed down Manuel Ugarte, Achraf Hakimi scored in the 20th minute following a one-two with Ousmane Dembele.
In the 38th minute, Marco Asensio made it 3-0 before Mbappe demonstrated PSG’s superiority with the fourth.
For the home team, who have one point from their first four games and coach Laurent Blanc’s job in doubt, Tolisso scored a second-half consolation goal from the penalty spot.
Yusuf Yazici’s free kick gave Lille the lead in the second minute, and the team held on to defeat Montpellier at home by a score of 1-0. Montpellier thought they had equalized when Kelvin Yeboah scored in the 88th minute, but VAR disallowed the goal.
Nice defeated Racing Strasbourg 2-0 to get their first victory of the season after three straight draws. Youcef Atal opened the scoring with a left-footed effort just before halftime, and Terem Moffi added a second goal in the 75th minute.
Le Havre, the Ligue 2 champions from the previous campaign, won for the first time this campaign as well with a convincing 3-0 home victory over Lorient, who suffered their first loss.
However, it took them until after the break for things to get going. Daler Kouziaiev scored their first goal, capping off a counterattack in the 53rd minute, and Nabil Alioui doubled the lead with 20 minutes remaining with a low drive. In extra time, Nolan Mbemba added a third goal.
Six minutes into the extra period against Toulouse, Clermont Foot tied the score at 2-2 with an equalizer to capture their first point of the year.
With the late goal, Captain Florent Ogier atoned for his defensive blunder against Metz last week, which led to the club’s third straight loss.
Zakaria Aboukhlal and Frank Magri gave Toulouse a 2-0 lead within of the first 15 minutes, but Grejohn Kyei’s 34th-minute penalty kick gave Clermont hope before Ogier’s late heroics.
Cheikh Sabaly’s strong effort into the top corner gave Metz an early lead over Stade de Reims, but Oumar Diakite’s goal in the 17th minute tied the score.
Early in the second half, Teddy Teuma’s left-footed strike gave Reims the lead, but substitute Ablie Jallow made it 2-2 in order to earn a point.
