Paris Saint-Germain bounced back from defeat against Monaco after beating Dijon 3-0 at the Stade Gaston Gérard.

Goals from Moise Kean and a Kylian Mbappé brace were enough to secure victory against their rock-bottom hosts.

It took just six minutes for PSG to go ahead after Moise Kean found space in the box before finishing past goalkeeper Anthony Racioppi.

Their lead was doubled shortly after when Thilo Kehrer saw his goal-bound shot handled, with Kylian Mbappé stepping up to convert the resulting penalty.

Mbappé saw another shot saved after half-time before eventually grabbing his brace, curling a beautiful finish into the corner after being found by Rafinha.

Danilo Pereira completed the scoring after rising highest to head home Julian Draxler’s looping corner.
