Neymar, Mbappe score in PSG win

Neymar scored twice as Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain held off a late Bordeaux fightback to take victory.

The Brazil forward struck in the first half, firing into the bottom corner after being found by Kylian Mbappe.

The two linked up again for PSG’s second, Mbappe setting up Neymar to score from the edge of the box.

Mbappe tapped in a third but Bordeaux set up a tense finish with two late goals, Alberth Elis slotting in and M’Baye Niang lashing home.

But PSG held on for the final few seconds for a win that means they are 10 points clear of Lens at the top of Ligue 1, although Nice and Marseille – 11 and 12 points behind in third and fourth place respectively – have a game in hand.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been in excellent form in the league this season, losing just one game as they look to reclaim the title following Lille’s success last term.
