PSG were missing nine players due to injury or suspension, including Angel di Maria and Marco Verratti, while Mbappe rested at kick-off ahead of a trip to Turkey against Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday.

Paris: Moise Kean and Kylian Mbappe both scored two goals when Paris Saint-Germain beat Dijon 4-0 on Saturday to lead Ligue 1. The Lens-Nantes game was postponed after eleven members of the home team tested positive for coronavirus.

Kean started at Parc des Princes and scored a brace in the first half, his first goals since joining PSG on loan from Everton.

Mbappe then replaced the Italian international in the final stages, adding a late double as Thomas Tuchel’s team – for whom Neymar was superb – rebounded from their midweek Champions League loss to Manchester United and six straight Ligue 1 wins scored.

The result allowed PSG to take the lead, one point ahead of Lille, although the Northerners can recapture first place by beating Nice on Sunday.

“The most important thing was to win again at home,” said captain Marquinhos Channel +.

“We know this season won’t be easy. We’ll have a lot of games, we changed teams here, but we were still competitive on the field. ”

The reigning champions were missing nine players due to injury or suspension, including Angel di Maria and Marco Verratti, while Mbappe rested on Wednesday kick-off ahead of a trip to Turkey against Istanbul Basaksehir.

In a game played behind closed doors because of the French capital’s health crisis, Kean came into play and converted a Mitchel Bakker cross into the third minute.

Neymar then headed the post before scoring Kean’s second goal midway through the first half.

Released after the counterattack by Julian Draxler, Neymar ran the ball halfway down the field before exiting Kean with an easy finish.

PSG lost Draxler to an injury in the second half before Mbappe replaced Kean and hit a pass from Neymar eight minutes from time.

In the 88th minute, Neymar scored a beautiful pass to seek out Pablo Sarabia who sealed Mbappe to victory.

Marseille previously won 1-0 in Lorient as Argentinian defender Leonardo Balerdi moved up to fourth just behind Rennes in the second half, who lost 2-1 to Angers on Friday.

Andre Villas-Boas’ team will host Manchester City in the Champions League on Tuesday.

“Health situation has priority”

Lens’s home game against Nantes, scheduled for Sunday, was canceled after they lost the equivalent of an entire team to positive coronavirus tests.

Lens did not confirm the identity of the players concerned, but the local newspaper The voice of the north reported that two employees, including trainer Franck Haise, were also positive.

“The health situation has priority, but this changes a lot of things for the league itself,” said Nantes coach Christian Gourcuff, whose squad had already traveled to Lens.

“I think what we experienced will happen again.”

It’s not the first time this season that a Ligue 1 game has been postponed due to Covid-19. The meeting of Marseille with Bordeaux on the opening night of the campaign in August was postponed for the same reason.

After that, fearing an avalanche of postponements, the LFP relaxed its health protocol to ensure games could continue as long as at least 20 players from a list of 30 players on each team tested negative.

The Ligue 2 game between Grenoble and Nancy, scheduled for Saturday, has also been postponed after 13 Grenoble players along with five employees tested positive.

Lens and the surrounding area in the far north of France, along with much of the country, are currently locked at night to help reduce the spread of the virus.

France has registered more than a million cases and nearly 35,000 deaths from Covid-19.
