Paris Saint-Germain are now atop the Ligue 1 table after surviving a scare from FC Metz before ultimately pulling out a 3-2 win at the Stade Saint-Symphorien on Friday.
Strikes from Javier Pastore and Ezequiel Lavezzi, as well as a Gaetan Bussman own goal from Metz, were enough to overcome two Modibo Maiga penalties that occured in four second half minutes.
The narrow triumph sends Laurent Blanc's men two points clear of Olympique de Marseille at the top of Le Championnat, putting some pressure...
Paris St Germain survived a dramatic blip early in the second half to beat Metz 3-2 and move, at least temporarily, top of Ligue 1.
The visitors were 2-0 up with little more than 15 minutes on the clock, Javier Pastore's opener added to by Gaetan Bussmann's unfortunate own goal.
Remarkably, two penalties in quick succession allowed Modibo Maiga to draw Metz level but Ezequiel Lavezzi poached a late winner to take PSG ahead of rivals Marseille, who play Bordeaux on Sunday.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to feature for Paris Saint-Germain in Friday's Ligue 1 game at Metz, while Yohan Cabaye is improving after a dip in self-confidence, coach Laurent Blanc has revealed.
After being sidelined by a heel injury since late-September, Ibrahimovic, 33, returned to competitive action with a substitute appearance in PSG's league game with Marseille just before the international break, before featuring for Sweden in their Euro 2016 qualifier with Montenegro on Saturday.
