Round 6 review: PSG, Marseille set the pace

Publish on 09/05 at 08:05 - L.DAVEY


Paris Saint-Germain and Marseille pulled away from the pack whilst Lyon continued to quietly impress. Meanwhile, it was all smiles in Monaco as they took the Côté d'Azur bragging rights against Nice. Check out the action from Round 6 of Ligue 1 Uber Eats here!

PSG ease to victory 

A fantastic Kylian Mbappé double set Paris Saint-Germain on their way to a 3-0 win at Nantes, to remain top of the league on goal difference.

Mbappé struck his 6th goal of the campaign with a superb strike (18') and added another, nine minutes after the break. Nuno Mendes' first league goal for the champions (68') saw off Nantes who had Fabio sent off for a reckless challenge on Vitinha.

"We were able to score quite quickly and then the fact that we were playing with 11 against ten men obviously became a huge advantage," said PSG coach Christophe Galtier who will take charge of his first Champions League game with PSG against Juventus in midweek.

"Then scoring the second goal quite quickly also allowed the match to drop in intensity and risk. That allowed me to coach in the way that I wanted to."  

Marseille see off Auxerre 

Alexis Sanchez scored his third goal in a week during Marseille's 2-0 win at Auxerre.

Brazilian midfielder Gerson fired OM in front (7') but the visitors had to wait until six-minutes from time to finish off Auxerre, when Sanchez made sure of the points.

Five-star Lyon win again 

Lyon thrashed Angers 5-0 to make it four wins from four at the Groupama Stadium this season.

Goals from Karl Toko Ekambi (31' & 58'), Alexandre Lacazette (38'), Castello Lukeba (62') and Moussa Dembélé (88') blew away Angers who are still without a win this season. 

"We didn't start too well, we lost a lot of balls" said Lyon coach Peter Bosz. "We played very well in the second half. This clean sheet is also important, the substitutes were excellent when they came on so I'm happy with the result." 

Lens snatch point

Lois Openda equalised eight minutes from time to hand Lens a 1-1 draw at Reims.

Folarin Balogun's fifth goal of the season put Reims in front (71') but the Champagne side were unable to hold on to their lead and Openda headed home the leveller.

LOSC bounce back

After a disappointing midweek defeat against Nice, LOSC eased past Montpellier 3-1 at the Stade de la Mosson.

Elye Wahi's lob put the hosts in front (20') but LOSC hit back in style and goals from Jonathan David (41' & 90') and Angel Gomes (57') handed Paulo Fonseca's men maximum points. 

Monaco win derby

Monaco got the better of Côté d'Azur rivals Nice after a 1-0 win at the Allianz Riviera.

Breel Embolo headed the winner in the 69th minute to end the week on a high after a midweek defeat to Troyes. 

Points shared at Troyes

Rennes' stuttering start to the season continued after they drew 1-1 at ten-man Troyes.

Ike Ugbo broke the deadlock for Troyes (14') but Bruno Irles' side were reduced to ten men when Yoann Salmier was given his marching orders. Baptiste Santamaria equalised three-minutes after half time to earn Bruno Genesio's men a point.

Strasbourg held at Brest

A Ludovic Ajorque penalty earned Strasbourg a point in a 1-1 draw at Brest. Ajorque's 28th-minute penalty cancelled out Pierre Lees-Melou's sixth-minute opener for Brest.

Clermont back to winning ways

Clermont bounced back from two-straight defeats to beat Toulouse 2-0 at the Stade Gabriel Montpied. A first Clermont goal for Maxime Gonalons (46') followed by Muhammed-Cham Saracevic's third strike of the season in injury time, handed the hosts their third win of the campaign.

Lorient win on the road

Lorient registered their second away win of the season with a 1-0 win at Ajaccio,

Dango Ouattara score the only goal of the game (51') to leave the Corsican side rock bottom of the table.
