Ligue 1 top three win, stay unbeaten

·2-min read

Undefeated in six league matches including five wins and 24 goals scored, Paris Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappe are in scintillating form ahead of next week's opening Champions League clash with Juventus.

Mbappe scored twice from Lionel Messi assists as they won 3-0 at 10-man Nantes to remain leaders of Ligue 1 on Saturday.

But the French champions were dealt a blow from Vitinha's apparent knee injury. The Portuguese midfielder was forced off the pitch in the first half after falling on the turf following a late tackle from defender Fabio, who was sent off.

Hosts Nantes trailed from the 17th minute after Mbappe's superb goal with a curled right-footed shot from the left side of the box into the opposite corner.

Messi was again the provider for Mbappe's seventh goal -- this time from close range -- which was initially disallowed for offside in the 53rd but given after a VAR check.

Nuno Mendes completed the scoring in the 67th from the rebound after Neymar hit the post.

PSG leads undefeated Marseille in the standings on goal difference.

After missing a penalty midweek, Alexis Sanchez made amends to cap Marseille's 2-0 win at Auxerre with his third goal in five league matches.

Sanchez, who joined Marseille from Inter Milan last month on a free transfer, came off the bench near the hour mark and sealed Marseille's fifth league win in the 83rd minute with a low shot from Matteo Gendouzi's back pass.

Igor Tudor's Marseille have 16 of a possible 18 points. Every time the nine-time champions have managed to remain unbeaten in their six opening matches in the 21st century, they have finished the season in the top three.

Elsewhere, Karl Toko-Ekambi continued his good run of form by scoring twice in Lyon's 5-0 thrashing of struggling Angers.

After being decisive midweek with the winner against Auxerre, Toko Ekambi put the hosts in front against his former team in the 31st minute and scored again near the hour mark.

Alexandre Lacazette, Castello Lukeba and Moussa Dembele were also on the scoresheet for the third-placed hosts.
