Neymar scored a breathtaking winner in the 92nd minute as Paris Saint-Germain beat Strasbourg 1-0 to stay top of Ligue 1.
The Brazilian was in PSG's starting line-up for the first time this season after a summer of speculation linking him with a return to Barcelona, and he was booed by the club's ultras as his name was read out before the game and whenever he touched the ball.

But Neymar showed what he is capable of in stoppage time, meeting Abdou Diallo's cross with an inch-perfect overhead kick, leaving Matz Sels stranded in the Strasbourg goal and earning all three points for PSG.
His spectacular finish was met with a mixture of cheers and boos by the home fans, and he looked to have scored a second just moments later before the goal was disallowed by VAR.
Hazard makes debut in Real Madrid win
Eden Hazard made his Real Madrid debut as they survived a Levante comeback to win 3-2 in La Liga's early kick-off.
Karim Benzema headed Real in front after 25 minutes when he met a cross from Dani Carvajal and the France forward struck again a few minutes later with a well-taken finish after latching on to a pass from James Rodriguez.
Brazil midfielder Casemiro stretched Real's advantage right before half-time with a lung-busting run to meet a cross from compatriot Vinicius Jr, but Levante hit back shortly after the interval through former Real forward Borja Mayoral.
After half-time Hazard made his first appearance for the club from the bench, replacing Casemiro after an hour, having missed the first three league games of the campaign with a thigh strain.
Levante reduced the deficit to one goal with 15 minutes to go thanks to a near-post header from Gonzalo Melero and twice came close to levelling in stoppage time but Real scraped the victory to move on to eight points after four games.

Fati strikes again as Barca hit five
Teenager Ansu Fati stole the show again as Barcelona posted a convincing win over Valencia at the Nou Camp.
The 16-year-old became Barcelona's youngest ever scorer when he netted against Osasuna prior to the international break and, pushed into the starting line-up, he needed less than two minutes to find the net again.
Fati then set up Frenkie De Jong for the second only four minutes later and, although defensively they were shaky again, Barcelona went on to claim a 5-2 win.
Lionel Messi was again missing with a calf injury, but Barca had no trouble creating chances, with Gerard Pique and substitute Luis Suarez scoring in the second half, the latter with a double to celebrate his return to fitness.
With Atletico Madrid beaten by Real Sociedad earlier in the day, Barca are now only two points behind the early pacesetters.
Roared on by a record crowd in their revamped and completed stadium, Real Sociedad ended leaders Atletico Madrid's 100 per cent start to season with a deserved 2-0 win.
Former Real Madrid player Martin Odegaard put the Basque side ahead in the first game at the renovated Reale Arena with a deflected shot in the 58th minute which completed a sweeping end-to-end attack.
Debutant Nacho Monreal doubled Sociedad's advantage only three minutes later, pouncing on a fumble by Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak who later had to be substituted despite protests from the Slovenian after taking a blow to the head.

- Ajax 4-1 Heerenveen
- VVV 2-1 Groningen

- Utrecht 3-1 Emmen
Sarri takes charge as injury-hit Juventus draw
Maurizio Sarri hailed his side's character but ended up counting the cost of a goalless draw at Fiorentina after taking charge of Juventus for the first time.
The former Chelsea coach had missed Juve's first two games of the season due to a bout of pneumonia but he watched prospective injury problems pile up at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.
Danilo, Douglas Costa and Miralem Pjanic were all forced off early due to muscle issues with Pjanic, in particular, now a doubt for his side's Champions League trip to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
Elsewhere in Serie A, Inter Milan beat 10-man Udinese 1-0, while Napoli secured a 2-0 victory over Sampdoria.

Bayern held again, Dortmund bounce back
Emil Forsberg equalised from the penalty spot as Bundesliga leaders RB Leipzig survived an early storm to earn a 1-1 draw against title rivals Bayern Munich.
Robert Lewandowski had put Bayern in front within three minutes and the visitors had plenty of chances to increase their advantage before Forsberg responded in first-half injury time.
But Leipzig rose to the challenge in the second half and had a number of chances to go ahead before keeper Peter Gulacsi reacted brilliantly to save an injury-time effort from Niklas Sule.
- Borussia Dortmund 4-0 Bayer Leverkusen
- Mainz 2-1 Hertha Berlin
- Augsburg 2-1 Eintracht Frankfurt
- Koln 0-1 Borussia Moenchengladbach
- Union Berlin 1-2 Werder Bremen
- RB Leipzip 1-1 Bayern Munich
Borussia Dortmund hit back from their shock defeat to Bundesliga new boys Union Berlin two weeks ago with a 4-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen.
Paco Alcacer eased the home side's nerves when he swept home from an Achraf Hakimi cross just before the half-hour mark, and Marco Reus extended Dortmund's lead after 50 minutes.
Late goals from Reus again and Raphael Guerreiro added some gloss for the scoreline and ensured the hosts were able to maintain the pressure on their title rivals.
