Neymar scored twice as Paris Saint-Germain made it consecutive wins to start the Ligue 1 season with an emphatic 5-2 victory over Montpellier at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.

The champions started their title defence with a 5-0 win against Clermont last weekend in Christophe Galtier’s first league game in charge, and they followed that up with a ninth success in their past 10 league games against Montpellier, despite a penalty miss from Kylian Mbappe midway through the first half.

The France international made amends soon after when his cross was turned into his own net by Falaye Sacko, before Neymar doubled the hosts’ advantage from a second penalty of the game.

Neymar and Mbappe scored either side of Wahbi Khazri’s goal for the visitors, while there were late efforts from debutant Renato Sanches and Montpellier’s Enzo Tchato Mbiayi.
