Zlatan Ibrahimovic bagged a brace to help Paris Saint-German secure a 2-1 win over Olympique Marseille on Sunday night.
Edison Cavani and David Luiz made a return to PSG line-up, with Marquinhos and Layvin Kurzawa dropping out.
The first half got off to a slow start, although the hosts nearly opened the scoring in the 21st minute when Irbahimovic forced Steve Mandanda into a fine save.
Angel Di Maria came to close to handing the Champions the lead in the 25th minute when the winger skipped past Rolando, before firing a low effort inches wide of the upright.
It was Marseille who went ahead in the 30 minute Michy Batshuayi towered over David Luiz to head home at the back post.
However, the home side were awarded a penalty in the 41st minute when Mandanda brought down Ibrahimovic, who stepped up to convert the spot-kick.
Laurent Blanc's men were awarded another penalty three minutes later and Ibrahimovic stepped up once again to score his second goal, which has made him the club's all-time top goal scorer.
Marseille were then handed a penalty of their own 10 minutes into the second half, however PSG goalkeeper, Kevin Trapp, guessed right and saved Abdel.
PSG squandered a great chance to extend their lead in the 64th minute when Blaise Matuidi picked out Di Maria at the far post, however the Argentine blazed his effort horribly wide.
Mandanda then came to Marseille's rescue in the 78th minute, as the French goalkeeper did well to keep out Javier Pastore's close range strike.
PSG managed to see off a late surge from the visitors to secure their seventh win of the season and maintain top spot in Ligue 1.
