Nantes 1-4 Paris St-Germain

Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Paris St-Germain are unbeaten in 10 games this season

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria scored as Paris St-Germain came from behind to beat Nantes and maintain their unbeaten start.

Ibrahimovic struck after 48 minutes to cancel out a first-half header from midfielder Yacine Bammou.

Cavani headed home a Di Maria free-kick on 73 minutes, before the Argentina midfielder chipped the third from a Javier Pastore pass.

Serge Aurier's 90th-minute goal sealed the win that keeps PSG top of Ligue 1.

Bammou also struck the post for Nantes, who slid to a fourth straight defeat.

Paris travel to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday, before hosting Marseille in the league next Sunday.

Lyon, last season's runners-up, trail PSG by eight points after suffering a 3-1 defeat at mid-table Bordeaux.

Former Arsenal defender Sebastien Squillaci scored twice as Bastia won 3-0 against Toulouse, while top-flight newcomers GFC Ajaccio are still searching for their first win after losing 2-0 at Caen.
