PSG moved two points clear of second-placed Lille, who have a game in hand against Lyon Sunday
Kylian Mbappe scored either side of halftime as Paris Saint Germain returned to the top of Ligue 1 with a 3-1 victory over Metz at Stade Saint-Symphorien Saturday.
PSG opened the scoring inside four minutes when Mbappe latched on to a floated pass from midfielder Ander Herrera, before smashing it past Metz goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja.
Against the run of play, Metz scored the equalizer as right back Fabien Centonze headed home from close range, only for PSG to reclaim the lead through Mbappe in the 58th minute.
Mauro Icardi's penalty put the result beyond doubt with two minutes remaining, as PSG moved two points clear of second-placed Lille, who have a game in hand against Olympique Lyonnais Sunday.
