Follow for all HIGHLIGHTS from the Ligue 1 game between PSG and Toulouse.


Dallinga breaks free down the left on the counter. He is not afforded the space to cut inside and he shoots with his left and it is straight at Donnarumma. Four minutes added on. Toulouse wins a corner following a counter-attack. Bitshiabu heads it clear, but it comes back and Rouault thought he scored, only to see Donnarumma claw it back from the line. WHAT A SAVE!! PSG HOLDS ON TO THE LEAD AND WINS 2-1.


Donnarumma almost gets into trouble, after he spilled a cross from the right flank into the path of an onrushing attacker. Nervy moment there for PSG.


Danilo fouls Van den Boomen right at the edge of the box. Best chance for Toulouse and it is Van den Boomen who will take it. He goes low, but Donnarumma makes no mistake this time as he preserves his side’s lead.


Nuno Mendes dashes in and he finds Messi, who took a touch and opens up his left foot. He had space, he had time but he can’t find the top corner. Nine out of ten times, that would have been a goal. Not today though.


Hakimi is involved again down the right. But his delivery wasn’t accurate enough. Chance wasted there. Vitinha gets the ball inside the box. He takes one touch too many and the shooting space was closed down.


Toulouse now tries to pass its way into PSG territory and succeeds to a point. Chaibi is given space to shoot and he does with vigour. SIDE NETTING!!! Toulouse is knocking.


PSG wins a corner down the left after a rasping run by Nuno Mendes. Messi swings it in but PSG can’t make it count.


PSG is in the lead for the first time this game and is on the lookout for increasing its lead. Meanwhile, Toulouse makes a few changes to get back into the game.


MESSSII!!!! Toulouse steps off for a bit and Messi makes it count. Hakimi tries to dribble in but is crowded out, but his loose touch is pounced on by Messi, who piledrives it in with his left foot. PSG IS AHEAD.


Toulouse looks to break the pressure with some long balls into PSG territory. Messi cuts through the Toulouse defence with an outside-of-the-boot pass for Hakimi, who can only slash his shot wide. BRILLIANCE FROM MESSI!!


Messi dribbles past two and finds Ruiz just outside the box, who then tries to set up Soler who was making a run into the box. But the pass was a bit too heavy and Dupe makes a comfortable gather.


Toulouse starts the second half positively. The visitor targets the PSG right flank, but the home side holds fort.


PSG was taken aback with the early Toulouse goal. But it has bounced back level, thanks to an outstanding goal from Achraf Hakimi. Both sides are on the look out for the winner as the second half begins.


PSG continues to probe on for a go-ahead goal. Two minutes added on as Toulouse looks to hold on to the parity. Mendes is booked for a bad foul on Aboukhlal and that was the last piece of action. HALF TIME. PSG 1-1 Toulouse.


The game has blown open and PSG looks to capitalise on the momentum it has gained. Hakimi ends on the left flank and gives away an unnecessary foul.


Hakimi drifts inside and he is given the space to shoot. He smashes it with his left foot and it curls its way past Dupe. PSG draws level.


Messi tries to bend a freekick over the ball, but can win only a corner. He swings it in and hits the back post. PSG so close to getting level.


Vitinha and Hakimi link up down the right and the Moroccan sends in a dangerous cross, which had to dealt with by the Toulouse defence. PSG is ramping up the pressure.


Galtier is clearly unhappy with his side’s performance so far. Ekitike is the next PSG player to attempt a shot and it is a tame one. Easy save there for Dupe.


PSG tries to work its way back. Messi dances past a couple of defenders at the edge of the box, but he can’t find the right pass. Soler attempts a shot, which is duly blocked.


Van den Boomen gives Toulouse a shock lead against PSG with a freekick goal. Completely against the run of the play and the home side didn’t see it coming. PSG 0-1 Toulouse.


Renato Sanches walks back to the dressing room with what looks like a hamstring injury. Danilo slots back into midfield, while Bitshiabu, who just came in, goes into central defence.


Messi’s corner is headed by Danilo, but he couldn’t get the right direction on to it. Renato Sanches is down on the floor and looks like in some pain.


Aboukhlal is fouled down the left for Toulouse, giving it a chance to move up the field. PSG brings the ball back and pushes forward again. Fabian Ruiz wins the first corner of the game, for Paris.


Early control of the game rests with the home side. Comfortable passing by PSG, but it hasn’t broken into the opposite box yet.


PSG is without both Mbappe and Neymar and it will be looking up to Messi to deliver the goods.


PSG is in its home colours, while Toulouse is in its white and blue ones and we have kick-off.

Playing 11s

PSG has won its last five Ligue 1 games against Toulouse, without conceding a goal. The Parisians are also unbeaten at home in the league for the last 32 games.


Paris St Germain will be without Neymar and Kylian Mbappe when it takes on Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Saturday after the Brazilian was ruled out due to muscle pain.

Mbappe has been ruled out for three weeks with a thigh injury and will miss the team’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Bayern Munich on Feb 14.

“Following some pain in his abductor muscle, Neymar is still recovering and is training individually,” PSG said in a statement.

“He will resume training with the squad early next week.”

PSG recovered from a poor start to its league campaign with a 3-1 win over Montpellier, despite Mbappe missing two penalties.

“The absence of Neymar and Kylian is obviously a pity because the three players up front had been connecting well,” said PSG coach Christophe Galtier.

“It will be up to those who play alongside Leo (Lionel Messi) to seize the opportunity.”

PSG leads the standings with 51 points from 21 games, five ahead of second-placed Olympique de Marseille.
