Kombouare left PSG to take over as coach at Strasbourg but failed to make it a winning comeback after a rip-roaring affair.
Strasbourg did take the lead through Danijel Ljuboja on 14 minutes but Branko Boskovic equalised on 20 minutes.
Reinaldo and Pauleta had PSG in command before the 70th minute and though Abdelilah Fahmi netted a second Strasbourg goal with ten minutes left, it was too little, too late.
Lens and Auxerre remain in the hunt for a UEFA Champions League place after hard-fought wins over Toulouse and Le Mans respectively.
Lens maintained their challenge for a Champions League spot with a gritty 2-1 triumph at ten-man Toulouse.
The home side's task to lift themselves off the foot of the table was made difficult when Christophe Avezac was dismissed on 34 minutes for his second yellow card.
A brace of goals inside two second-half minutes from Daniel Moreira and Mounir Diane put Lens in control although Ousmane N'Doye set up a tense finish with a strike on 77 minutes.
Auxerre required a stroke of good fortune to also keep up their push for a Champions League berth after a slender success at home to relegation-threatened Le Mans.
The only goal arrived on 17 minutes when Olivier Kapo's corner was headed into his own net by Yannick Fischer.
Lille recorded their first win in 13 matches to ease the pressure on under-fire coach Claude Puel after battling past ten-man Nantes.
The turning point of the contest came on the half-hour mark when Mario Yepes was sent off for a tackle on Vladimir Manchev.
The hosts opened the scoring on 41 minutes through Philippe Brunel and Hector Tapia sealed the precious three points in the final minute.
Bastia twice came from behind at home to Rennes before claiming the spoils despite ending the match a man short.
Abdeslam Ouaddou put the visitors in front on eight minutes but Bastia were level before the break courtesy of Florian Maurice's penalty.
Frederic Piquionne put Rennes back ahead on the hour mark, only for Benoit Cauet to equalise just two minutes later.
Youssouf Hadji poached the winner with ten minutes remaining before Cauet received his marching orders with three minutes left for a second yellow card.
Guingamp gained a much-needed victory at home to Ajaccio although it took 65 minutes to break the visitors' stubborn resistance.
Ajaccio had Gregory Lacombe sent off on 31 minutes for a second yellow card but it was not until Alledine Yahia's 65th minute intervention that Guingamp forged ahead, with Pierre-Yves Andre clinching the success on 72 minutes.
Montpellier's tussle at home to Sochaux was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
