Paris Saint-Germain continued the blistering start to their Ligue 1 title defence with a record-extending 10th straight win as Kylian Mbappe scored in a 5-0 thrashing of Amiens on Saturday. Brazilian centre-back Marquinhos nodded the hosts into a 12th-minute lead and Adrien Rabiot made it two shortly before half-time. Germany winger Julian Draxler grabbed the third headed goal of the game, and the 19-year-old Mbappe fired in late on to score his ninth goal in just six league matches this season. A totally outclassed Amiens quickly saw PSG add a fourth despite having barely got out of second gear, as Mbappe latched onto Diaby’s pass after a flowing move and drilled home. Later on Saturday, Thierry Henry takes charge of freefalling Monaco for the first time at Strasbourg, while second-placed Lille visit Dijon.

And European leaders such as French President Emmanuel Macron are openly wondering if a second British vote might yet make the mess go away. Polls show support for a second referendum evenly split — the same as with the Brexit vote itself.
