Paris, France (Sports Network) – PSG needed a pair of goals in stoppage time
to slip past Guingamp, 2-0, at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.

Substitute Adrien Rabiot finally broke the deadlock for PSG in the first
minute of stoppage time before Zlatan Ibrahimovic put the result beyond reach
with his first Ligue 1 goal of the season.

The Swede nearly opened his account two minutes into the match when he curled
a 25-yard free kick off the post, and the home side was left frustrated for
much of the match by a determined Guingamp defense.

PSG was wasteful on numerous occasions in front of goal, but a late free kick
helped to spare the club’s blushes as Alex turned a header on goal that was
parried into the path of Rabiot, who calmly applied the finishing touch.

Guingamp threw players forward in an effort to equalize, but Ibrahimovic
latched on to a long clearance and rounded the goalkeeper before rolling the
ball into the net to wrap up three points.

Evian climbed off the bottom of the league with a 2-1 upset win against Lyon
with a pair of goals in the first half from Kevin Berigaud.

Bastia downed Toulouse, 2-1, despite playing more than an hour with 10 men
after Julian Palmieri was sent off, Rennes and Lille played out a 0-0 draw,
Lorient edged Valenciennes, 1-0, through Vincent Aboubakar’s first-half goal,
Sochaux and Ajaccio finished 0-0, while Reims and Nantes also failed to
produce a goal in a 0-0 stalemate.
