Mauro Icardi
Mauro Icardi joined PSG on a season-long loan deal from Inter Milan in the summer

Mauro Icardi scored his first goal for Paris St-Germain as they beat Galatasaray 1-0 in Istanbul to take control of their Champions League group.

The Argentine striker, on loan from Inter Milan, tapped in from close-range in the second half after good work from fellow summer arrival Pablo Sarabia.

The win leaves PSG top of Group A on six points, four ahead of Club Bruges following the Belgian side's 2-2 draw with Real Madrid.

PSG's next Champions League tie is in Bruges in two weeks' time.
