PSG stroll in Corsica
Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi combined to give Paris Saint-Germain a 3-0 at Ajaccio.
Messi's pinpoint pass was finished off by Mbappé (24') to open the scoring. The Frenchman then returned the favour when Messi added a brilliant second (79'). The duo combined three minutes later for Mbappe's second of the game to keep the reigning champions top of the pile. 
Lens add to Marseille woes
A late strike from David Costa handed Lens a crucial 1-0 win against Marseille at the Orange Velodrome.
Costa's long-range effort took a huge deflection off Leonardo Balerdi before beating Pau Lopez (78') to condemn OM to their third-straight league defeat.
"Sometimes football is unfair and that was the case tonight," said Marseille coach Igor Tudor following his side's defeat. "If any team deserved to win, it was us. I told the boys not to be sad, I'm proud of them. It's one of the best, if not the best match of the season. I am proud of how we played, now we have to raise our heads and move forward. We have another match in four days."
Lorient held at Troyes
Lorient fought back twice to earn a hard-fought point in a 2-2 draw at Troyes
Stephane Diarra's wonderful solo effort for Lorient (50') cancelled out Julien Laporte's own goal (34') to put Troyes in the ascendancy. Rony Lopes then fired Troyes back in front (61') but the hosts were pegged back once more when Quentin Boisgard levelled up (81') for this season's surprise package.
LOSC edge Monaco in thriller
LOSC came from behind to beat Monaco 4-3 in an enthralling clash at the Decathlon Arena.
Goals from Monaco pair Caio Henrique (34') and Axel Disasi (44') cancelled out Alexsandro Ribeiro's header (22') and Rémy Cabella's simple finish for the hosts (39'). Wissam Ben Yedder took advantage of Tiago Djalo's mishap to put Monaco in front (53') before Cabella's second of the game (63'), levelled things up for the hosts.
LOSC were able to find a winner in the 71st minute through Jonathan Bamba and leapfrog Monaco into sixth place in the table.
"The link-up between Leo and Kylian really worked well, it's very good for the team and it's very good for them," said PSG coach Christophe Galtier who gears his side up for the visit of Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League on Tuesday. "They are players that need to score and that's very good for them. It also allowed me to make changes to give certain players a break. I liked the way that our midfield played too."
