French giants, Paris St-Germain dropped points for the first time this season as they were held to a draw by Montpellier on Saturday.

The Ligue 1 side missed their new signing Neymar on the pitch due to a minor foot injury.

Fellow summer signing and rising French star, Kylian Mbappe forced two saves from Benjamin Lecomte but PSG looked generally below their best.

Neither Edinson Cavani nor Mbappe could find a way through Montpellier’s defence as the hosts maintained their record of losing just one game so far this season.

Unai Emery’s men are now only one point above champions Monaco, who beat Lille 4-0 on Friday.

Neymar is expected to return to the team when they host Bundesliga side, Bayern Munich in matchday 2 of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
