Troyes get the match started.The big screens in the stadium have shown some moving tributes to the victims of the Paris attacks and this is followed by a rousing rendition of the national anthem.

PSG meanwhile continue to be probing and patient, waiting for their chance to play the killer ball.PSG get the game restarted. The ball was then cleared back to the Argentine winger whose cross looked destined to be tapped in by van der Wiel but it was diverted away by Saunier.The atmosphere inside the Parc des Princes is as you might expect a little odd given recent events.

The home fans are making a terrific noise now, probably to get warm as much as anything else. Troyes for their part look simply unable to stem the tide of attacks at the moment.
It would have been a very harsh decision in my opinion.You suspect that the biggest dangers for PSG this afternoon are set pieces and complacency. Fantastic strike from the defender.Moura played the full 90 minutes away against Malmo on Wednesday night and Laurent Blanc has decided that now is the right time to give him a rest and introduce the energetic Matuidi to the game.Mavinga had been walking a bit of a tighrope since being booked in the first half so it is no surprise to see him replaced by Dabo.Laurent Blanc makes his first alteration of the day with Adrien Rabiot coming off to be replaced by the experienced Thiago Motta in the defensive midfield position. Di Maria had raced to the byline and put in a teasing cross which was met well by the head of Cavani. The only blot on their copy book was the shock last minute goal for Troyes, that said the PSG manager won't be unduly concerned - it was very comfortable for his side, particularly after the penalty in the second half.Well, it was the result we all expected and PSG duly obligated.

The home fans howl for a spot kick but there is nothing doing from the referee.CHANCE! Last time out the Parisians defeated Lorient 2-1 away from home. PSG vs. Troyes 4 - 1. The mercurial Zlatan Ibrahimovic never looked like missing from twelve yards and duly despatched the spot kick, sending Bernardoni the wrong way. It is a very chilly evening here in Paris!Troyes' gameplan you would imagine would be to try and keep things tight in the first 10-15 minutes of the second half and then look to hit PSG on the break.
