Follow all the HIGHLIGHTS of the Ligue 1 match between PSG and Toulouse.
Dallinga is released to the left on the counter. He has no room to cut inside and shoots left and it’s straight at Donnarumma. Four minutes added. Toulouse win a corner after a counterattack. Bitshiabu heads it clear, but he comes back and Rouault thought he had scored, only to see Donnarumma retrieve it from the line. WHAT A SAVED!! PSG KEEPS THE START AND WINS 2-1.
Donnarumma nearly ran into trouble, after he spilled a cross from the right flank into the path of a pounced attacker. Nervous moment there for PSG.
Danilo fouled Van den Boomen just on the edge of the area. The best opportunity for Toulouse and it is Van den Boomen who will take it. He goes low, but Donnarumma is right this time, as he retains the advantage on his side.
Nuno Mendes lunges and finds Messi, who takes a touch and opens his left foot. He had space, he had time but he can’t find the top corner. Nine times out of ten, that would have been a goal. Although not today.
Hakimi intervenes again on the right. But his delivery was not precise enough. Wasted opportunity there. Vitinha puts the ball inside the area. She takes a touch too many and the shooting space is closed.
Toulouse now try to break through into PSG territory and succeed to some extent. Chaibi is given space to shoot and he does it with vigour. SIDE MESH!!! Tolosa knocks on the door.
PSG win a corner on the left after a rough run from Nuno Mendes. Messi puts it in, but PSG can’t make it count.
PSG is in the lead for the first time in this game and is on the lookout for increasing their lead. Meanwhile, Toulouse make some changes to get back in the game.
MESSI!!!! Tolosa gets off for a while and Messi makes it count. Hakimi tries to dribble but is displaced, but his loose touch is attacked by Messi, who pushes him with his left foot. PSG IS AHEAD.
Toulouse look to break the pressure with some long balls in PSG territory. Messi cuts through the Toulouse defense with an off-the-boot pass to Hakimi, who can only parry his deflected shot. MESSI SHINE!!
Messi dribbles for two and finds Ruiz just outside the box, who then tries to help Soler who was running into the box. But the pass was a bit heavy and Dupe makes a comfortable pickup.
Toulouse starts the second part in a positive way. The visitor points to PSG’s right flank, but the locals hold on.
THE SECOND PART BEGINS
PSG were taken aback by Toulouse’s early goal. But he has recovered thanks to a great goal from Achraf Hakimi. Both sides look for the winner as the second half begins.
PSG is still looking for the go-ahead goal. Two minutes added as Toulouse looks to maintain parity. Yellow card for Mendes for a serious foul on Aboukhlal and that was the last play. HALFTIME. PSG 1-1 Toulouse.
The game has opened up and PSG are looking to capitalize on the momentum they have gained. Hakimi finishes off on the left wing and gives away an unnecessary free kick.
Hakimi walks in and is given room to shoot. He left-footed it and twisted his way past Dupe. PSG tie level.
Messi tries to double a free kick over the ball, but can only win a corner. He swings it and hits the back post. PSG so close to drawing.
Vitinha and Hakimi linked up on the right and the Moroccan sent a dangerous cross that the Toulouse defense had to solve. PSG increases the pressure.
Galtier is clearly unhappy with his team’s performance so far. Ekitike is the next PSG player to attempt a shot and he is tame. It easy to keep there for Dupe.
PSG tries to recover. Messi dances past a couple of defenders on the edge of the box, but he can’t find the right pass. Soler tries a shot, which is duly covered.
Van den Boomen gives Toulouse a surprising lead against PSG with a free-kick goal. Totally against the current and the locals did not see it coming. PSG 0-1 Toulouse.
Renato Sanches returns to the locker room with what appears to be a hamstring injury. Danilo returns to midfield, while Bitshiabu, who has just entered, moves to central defense.
Messi’s corner is headed by Danilo, but fails to hit the target. Renato Sanches is lying on the ground and appears to be in pain.
Aboukhlal is fouled on the left for Toulouse, giving him a chance to move up the field. PSG brings the ball back and pushes forward again. Fabián Ruiz wins the first corner of the match, for Paris.
Early game control rests with the home team. Comfortable step for PSG, but they have not broken into the opponent’s area yet.
PSG has neither Mbappé nor Neymar and will look for Messi to deliver the goods.
PSG is in their home colours, while Toulouse is in their white and blue colors and we have a kick-off.

LEAGUE 1 STATISTICS
PSG have won their last five Ligue 1 games against Toulouse without conceding a goal. The Parisians are also unbeaten at home in the league in the last 32 matches.
Paris St Germain will be without Neymar and Kylian Mbappe when they face Toulouse in Ligue 1 on Saturday after the Brazilian was ruled out due to sore muscles.
Mbappé will be out for three weeks with a thigh injury and will miss the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Bayern Munich on February 14.
“After a soreness in the abductor muscle, Neymar is still recovering and training individually,” PSG said in a statement.
“He will resume training with the team early next week.”
PSG bounced back from a poor start to their league campaign with a 3-1 win over Montpellier, despite Mbappé missing two penalties.
“The absence of Neymar and Kylian is obviously a pity because the three players above had connected well,” PSG manager Christophe Galtier said.
“It will depend on those who play alongside Leo (Lionel Messi) to seize the opportunity.”
PSG leads the standings with 51 points from 21 games, five ahead of second-placed Olympique de Marseille.
