Paris Saint-Germain continued the blistering start to their Ligue 1 title defence as Kylian Mbappe scored again earlier on Saturday.

Coach Thomas Tuchel left key men Neymar, Thiago Silva and Thomas Meunier out of the squad altogether at the Parc des Princes with Wednesday's Champions League clash with Napoli in mind, but PSG had more than enough to see off Amiens.

“Everyone thinks that Ligue 1 might be too easy to prepare for the Champions League, but it’s not like that,” insisted Tuchel, who took over the reins from Unai Emery in the close-season.

“That would mean you're blaming the other teams, but we focus on ourselves. Nobody won 10 games in a row, and we did it.”

Brazilian centre-back Marquinhos nodded the hosts into a 12th-minute lead and Adrien Rabiot made it two shortly before halftime.

Germany winger Julian Draxler grabbed the third headed goal of the game, and the 19-year-old Mbappe fired in late on to score his ninth goal in just six league outings this season.

It was a horrid mismatch with Amiens utterly outclassed, and teenager Moussa Diaby came off the bench to complete the rout as the capital-city giants maintained their commanding eight-point lead at the top of the table.

Elsewhere, second-placed Lille continued their strong start to the campaign as goals from Nicolas Pepe and Luiz Araujo sealed a 2-1 win over Dijon. (SuperSport)
