Leaders PSG, Marseille enjoy Ligue 1 wins

·2-min read

Lionel Messi's vision was too much for Toulouse as he set up goals for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in French league leader Paris Saint-Germain's 3-0 win at Toulouse.

Four touches were enough for PSG to open up the Toulouse defence for the first goal in the 37th minute on Wednesday night, with Messi applying the final pass to give Neymar his league-leading seventh goal in just five games.

After being denied four times by goalkeeper Maxime Dupe, Messi grabbed his fourth assist this season when he set up Mbappe's fifth goal of the season.

PSG's attack of Messi-Neymar-Mbappe has combined for 15 of PSG's 21 goals in five games and it would have been more but Dupe made nine saves.

Dupe denied Messi three times in the first half, then palmed away Messi's free kick at the start of the second.

Left back Juan Bernat wrapped it up after Mbappe's shot hit the post and fell to him.

PSG lead on goal difference from Lens and Marseille with all three on 13 points.

Lens beat Lorient 5-2 and Marseille scraped a 1-0 home win against Clermont.

In earlier games, Monaco followed up a stellar 1-1 draw against PSG with a humiliating 4-2 loss to modest Troyes.

Lyon remain fourth and unbeaten after winning 2-1 at home against Auxerre.

After netting two goals in a 7-0 win at Brest last weekend, 19-year-old forward Elye Wahi scored again as fifth-place Montpellier beat promoted Ajaccio 2-0.

Sixth-place Rennes beat Brest 3-1 and struggling Nice secured their first win of the season by winning 2-1 at Lille.

Reims went 2-0 ahead and got pegged back to 2-2 before winning 4-2 at Angers and Nantes grabbed a 1-1 draw at Strasbourg.
