  • Real Madrid showed PSG the difference between great players and champions — Mbappe

Lille are now level on points with Troyes, who looked set to hold on for an impressive point at Nantes only for Emiliano Sala to net the winner four minutes from time for a 2-1 victory.

After again falling short in the Champions League, Paris Saint-Germain got back into the routine of dominating the French league by crushing last-place Metz 5-0 on Saturday. We're happy with him.

Kylian Mbappe admitted after the Metz victory that Emery's fate is now in the hands of PSG's leaders; the fact that the Basque tactician was whistled by sections of the Parc des Princes crowd pre-match won't have gone unnoticed, either. "I am not a director, so it is not up to me".

PSG's star of the show was Christopher Nkunku, who took full advantage of Edinson Cavani's absence through suspension to deliver a display brimming with invention, industry and, most importantly, goals. Nantes moved to fifth, one point ahead of Rennes, who tied Saint-Etienne 1-1. "We needed to win after going out".

Thiago Silva added a late flourish to the scoreline, though, with a thumping header from Giovani Lo Celso's corner as PSG put their Madrid humbling firmly behind them. "In spite of the equaliser, we reacted very quickly, that's good", said Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim. "In addition, it was 'Mitro' [Mitroglou] who won it for us, so that's all the better, it will really kick-start his season", said the OM boss, whose side take a 3-1 first-leg lead into their UEFA Europa League round of 16 appointment with Athletic Bilbao on Thursday.

OGC Nice came screaming back into form with a thrilling 5-2 win away to Guingamp, Alassane Pléa bagging no fewer than four goals - his first Ligue 1 Conforama quadruple.

Although it means little when compared with the Champions League, certainly in the eyes of PSG's owners, Emery can still lead his team to a domestic clean sweep for the first time in his tenure.

He was denied a hat-trick when his header was incorrectly ruled out for offside before Mbappe scored the goal his industrious display deserved moments before the interval. "It is a dream come true for me to play for the same club as my father".

Bordeaux remain just inside the top ten despite being held to scoreless draw at home to Angers, while Dijon managed to avoid defeat as Wesley Said levelled in a 1-1 draw at home Amiens that leaves the promoted side two points clear of the bottom three.

"It is important to get back on track because we are still in three competitions".

Meanwhile Montpellier slipped off the pace in the race for fifth, drawing 1-1 in Lille before a controversial pitch invasion that saw disgruntled LOSC fans attack their own players.
