PSG continued their auspicious start to the season under their new coach with a thumping win over Montpellier at home.

Neymar scored twice with Kylian Mbappe and debutant Renato Sanches also on target for PSG, who were set on their way following an own goal by Montpellier defender Falaye Sacko as the home side made it two wins from two at the start of their title defence.

Mbappe had to chance to put his side ahead from the penalty spot but his effort was saved by diving Jonas Omlin in the Montpellier goal only for Sacko to put the ball into his own net in the 39th minute.

PSG were awarded a second penalty before half-time and Neymar stepped up to give the Parisians a 2-0 halftime lead.

The Brazilian added his second of the game soon after the break, reacting quickest to a loose ball to head home a rebound.

Montpellier were given a brief hope of a comeback when Wahbi Khazri pulled a goal back just before the hour-mark, but Mbappe put the fears to rest by scoring in the 69th minute to make up for his penalty miss. Neymar was denied his hat-trick when he had an effort disallowed for offside, but PSG extended their advantage through Sanches who scored on his debut following his move from Lille.

Enzo Tchato pulled another goal back for Montpellier with virtually the last kick of the game but it turned out to be another easy win for the home side in a warning to rest of the teams.
