Depay leads Lyon to win in Ligue 1 opener

PSG forwards Kylian Mbappe and Neymar during a past Ligue 1 match

Whenever the next big thing breaks through it reminds us just how old we've become and Timothy Weah joining his dad as a goalscorer for PSG just made a whole generation of football fans feel more like their own dads.

Brazil captain Thiago Silva, compatriot Marquinhos and France's World Cup 2018 victor Presnel Kimpembe offer competition for a spot in head coach Thomas Tuchel's XI.

The former Borussia Dortmund coach opened his reign at PSG with a 4-0 demolition of Monaco in last weekend's Trophee des Champions, which Neymar started on the bench.

He needed little time to leave his mark as Caen goalkeeper Brice Samba was punished for a sloppy pass, with Christopher Nkunku setting Neymar up for a calm, side-footed finish on his left foot.

L'Equipe noted on Sunday that PSG director general Antero Henrique is a man not famed for his leniency with contract rebels and exercises "efficient methods" when dealing with such situations.


Buffon was called up upon nine minutes later, with the veteran shot-stopper producing a fine save to keep out Malik Tchokounte's powerful shot. They included forward Kylian Mbappe, who helped France win the World Cup, and Belgium right back Thomas Meunier.

Adrien Rabiot tapped in to make it 2-0 after Angel Di Maria broke clear and squared unselfishly. Nsoki is poised to step up to fill the void, with the 19-year-old completing over 90 per cent of his passes.

Tuchel's side came even closer to increasing their lead with six minutes of normal time remaining when Weah - who had replaced Neymar just two minutes earlier - fired an effort across goal which came back off the inside of the post before trickling across the line and being gathered by a grateful Samba.

Substitute Timothey Weah punished another Samba mistake in the final minute.

Memphis Depay expertly curled in a free kick as Lyon beat Amiens 2-0 at home.
