PSG returned to the top of the table Neymar’s sensational start to the season continued away to Toulouse on Wednesday night.

Scorers: Neymar 37′, Mbappé 50′, Bernat 90′

After a low-key start, Lionel Messi came close to the opener when he fired just wide and then was denied by the goalkeeper shortly afterwards in a frustrating opening half hour.

On 37 minutes, they eventually breached the hosts’ low block with some mesmerisingly fast interplay on the edge of the area resulting in Neymar being teed up to calmly find the corner for his sixth goal of the league season.

It was also a significant goal for the club’s history books, being his 109th in 150 games which moves him level with Pauleta in fourth place of the club’s all-time top scorers.

Not content with being left out, Kylian Mbappé doubled PSG’s lead five minutes after the break when he was picked out unselfishly by Messi after a perfectly-timed run in behind and the Frenchman slid in at the near post.

In injury-time, Juan Bernat made it three for the champions with a rare goal.

That win that sees the champions remain top, although they are level on points with Marseille and Lens.
