Paris Saint-Germain have moved above Lille to go top of Ligue 1 after a 2-1 win over Nice on Saturday.

Nice 1
Full time

Julian Draxler gave PSG the lead after 22 minutes when he finished the rebound after Mauro Icardi had hit the post.

But the visitors equalised five minutes into the second half, when a poor clearance from Marquinhos landed at the feet of Rony Lopes, and he rifled his shot past Keylor Navas and into the roof of the net.

Nice then almost made it 2-1 when Amine Gouiri rattled the crossbar, before Moise Kean forced Walter Benítez into a strong save at the other end.

But Kean did find the net with 76 minutes on the clock, when he ghosted into the box and headed home from Icardi’s cross for what proved to be the winning goal.

Lille 0

Lille – who have played a game fewer than Mauricio Pochettino’s side – will return to the top if they beat Brest on Sunday.
