Sports Hakimi earns PSG last-gasp win at Metz

Achraf Hakimi struck deep in stoppage time to earn Paris St Germain a 2-1 victory at bottom side Metz on Wednesday and maintain their perfect Ligue 1 record this season. The Morocco full back scored after five minutes and added his second five minutes into added time to put PSG on 21 points from seven games, three days after the capital side beat Olympique Lyonnais by the same scoreline thanks to another winning goal in the dying seconds.

PSG lead second-placed Olympique de Marseille, who drew 0-0 at Angers and have a game in hand, by seven points. French sports daily L’Equipe reported that some Marseille supporters left their corner of the ground at the end of the game and headed towards the Angers fans, prompting the stadium’s security services to intervene. 

Earlier, champions Lille claimed their second win of the season by beating visiting Stade de Reims 2-1 and Monaco defeated secondbottom St Etienne 3-1. Metz, who finished with 10 men after Dylan Bronn picked up a second yellow card in the last minute, have three points from seven games. RC Lens, playing the first of two home games behind closed doors after crowd trouble marred their derby victory over Lille last Saturday, slumped to a 1-0 defeat by Racing Strasbourg and dropped to fourth on 12 points, behind Angers on goal difference.
