TROYES VS PSG, 0-2

PSG star players Angel Di Maria and Christopher Nkunku scored second-half goals as Paris St Germain won 2-0 against Troyes to gain their 14-point lead at the top of Ligue 1. Di Maria destroyed  the deadlock early in the second half before Nkunku's first goal of the season ensured a sixth straight league victory for Unai Emery's side. PSG made light of Neymar's absence in their first league encounter since his season-ending injury last week and only a brilliant display by Troyes goalkeeper Erwin Zelazny denied them a more convincing victory.
Neymar successfully underwent surgery in Brazil on Saturday to repair the fracture to the fifth metatarsal in his right foot, sustained in last week's 3-0 league win against Marseille. The visitors dominated the first half without being able to find a breakthrough as Zelazny produced further saves to thwart Lo Celso, Nkunku and Di Maria again before half-time.
