Dijon 1-2 Paris St-Germain

Paris St Germain
Paris St Germain have picked up 25 points from their opening nine Ligue 1 matches.

Thomas Meunier scored twice, including an injury-time winner, as Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain won at Dijon.

PSG hit the crossbar twice through Dani Alves and Marquinhos efforts before Meunier put them ahead with a rebound after Neymar's shot had been saved.

Dijon, who have only won one Ligue 1 match this season, equalised with a 30-yard volley from Benjamin Jeannot.

But PSG scored the winner in the second minute of added time when Meunier scored from Kylian Mbappe's pull-back.

PSG, who won the Ligue 1 title in four successive seasons before finishing second to Monaco in 2016-17, have only dropped two points from their first nine league matches of the campaign.

The club are also still unbeaten in their 12 matches in all competitions in 2017-18 and six points clear of Monaco, who lost 3-2 at Lyon on Friday.

In August, PSG paid a world record 222m euros (£198m) to sign Neymar from Barcelona and signed Mbappe on a season-long loan from Monaco with an option to make the deal permanent for 180m euros (£165.7m).
