24’ PSG 1-1 Troyes
PSG has drawn level! Soler scores for the home team.
Anguish for Neymar. The Brazilian receives the ball from the left flank, cuts in and takes a shot. The ball has pace and curl on it, but not enough to bend it into the far corner. PSG still looking for the first goal.
Paris is working an attack when Messi plays it to Mbappe. The Frenchman fails to sort the ball out at his feet and loses possession. Ramos then takes a long range shot which is saved by Gallon.
PSG wins a corner and decides to take it short. After a few close range passes, Messi crosses the ball in. The ball is a teaser but no PSG player is able to get their head to the ball. Gallon collects the ball.
Troyes is having a ball at Parc des Princes. It builds another attack down the left with Conte charging forward. Troyes has an advantage as Conte crosses in. A Troyes player takes a shot from close range but his shot is deflected over the goal for a corner.
PSG is mounting attacks here. It has nearly scored from the right side of the pitch but Messi’s shot went wide off goal. Mbappe too had a chance to slot in a rebound but his shot was blocked.
3’ PSG 0-1 Troyes – Balde
Troyes builds an attack from the left wing and the ball is crossed in from the edge of the penalty area. There are not enough PSG players in the box and Balde is able to pounce on the rebound and score the opener. Stunned silence from the PSG faithful.

Paris Saint Germain comes to the match on the back of thumping 7-2 victory against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League.
Messi, Neymar and Mbappe – the team’s frontline was firing on all cylinders in the Champions League win as it demolished the Israeli side.
Going into the Ligue 1 match having beating Ajaccio 3-0 last week, Paris will look to maintain its prefect start to the season. The team has played 12 matches and won 10. It is top of league, two points clear of 2nd placed Lens, which has played one game more.
Troyes, though currently in 11th position with 13 points, is just four points clear of the relegation zone. Its last two matches have been draws against Lorient and Ajaccio.
While a trip to Parc des Princes is as tough as a fixture can get, Troyes will bank on its forwards Mama Balde and Rony Lopes to pull of an upset over the French giant.
