PARIS (AP) — Kylian Mbappé made his return from injury as a substitute and set up Neymar's goal as Paris Saint-Germain beat Bordeaux 1-0 away in the French league on Saturday.

Mbappé, who had been out for a month with a thigh injury, came on with half an hour remaining and the France star gave Neymar a simple finish from close range in the 70th. Idrissa Gueye had capitalized on a mistake from Bordeaux defender Pablo to send Mbappé through.

The 20-year-old Mbappé missed a great chance shortly after coming on but failed to get the better of Bordeaux keeper Benoit Costil in their one-on-one. Costil had an outstanding game.

It was a game of missed chances for the defending champions, who wanted to bounce back from Wednesday's surprise 2-0 loss to Reims, the side's first league defeat at home for 16 months.

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel responded with six changes for Bordeaux, which only threatened Keylor Navas' goal after Neymar scored.

After eight games, PSG leads by two points from Nantes and Angers, which was held to a 1-1 draw by Amiens.

PSG next faces a trip to Galatasaray in the Champions League on Tuesday before hosting Angers four days later.

LYON MISERY CONTINUES

Lyon's miserable form continued with a 1-0 defeat at home to Nantes, an own-goal from Brazilian defender Marcal being enough for the visitors.

It left Lyon seven games without a win across all competitions, including the 1-1 draw at home to Zenit St. Petersburg in the Champions League. It is the side's worst streak since it went eight games without a victory in 1996.

OTHER MATCHES

Lille prepared for Wednesday's home Champions League game against Chelsea with a 1-1 draw at Nice.

It was Lille's eighth successive away match without a win and left the side fourth, four points behind PSG.

Monaco hadn't won a match until Tuesday but crushed Brest 4-1 on Saturday to record a second straight win. Islam Slimani scored a penalty and set up the other three goals.

Metz drew 2-2 with Toulouse and Dijon won 2-1 at Reims to claim its first victory of the season.

    Investors Shun China’s Small Banks Despite Half-Price Deals (1)

    Since May 24, when the Chinese government stunned the market with its first bank seizure in more than two decades, there have been more than 1,400 attempted sales on Taobao of mostly unlisted rural and city bank shares. Investors are shunning China's smaller banks as many contend with a growing pile of soured loans, weaker capital buffers and poor risk management following years of breakneck expansion, often through nontraditional financing. “Most banking licenses are no longer valuable,” said Zhang Shuaishuai, a Shanghai-based analyst at China International Capital Corp. “With the ongoing deleveraging campaign, fiercer competition and tougher regulatory oversight, some smaller banks are fighting a battle for survival.

    Report: Georgia judge rejects AMC's claim over 'Walking Dead' stuntman's death

    The lawsuit stemming from a death on the set of "The Walking Dead" moved closer to trial after a Georgia judge reportedly rejected AMC's claim that it can't be held responsible for the incident. Variety reports that Gwinnett County Judge Emily Brantley rejected arguments from AMC Networks Inc. (Nasdaq: AMCX) pertaining to stuntman John Bernecker, who fell to his death in 2017 after allegedly flipping over a railing and falling 21 feet, just missing the pads meant to cushion his fall. Bernecker's family filed suit in January of 2018, alleging the network cut corners on safety precautions. Variety reports that AMC motions filed in August argue the 33-year-old was in control of the stunt and had assumed the risks of the fall.

    Exclusive: No choice but to invest in oil, Shell CEO says

    Royal Dutch Shell still sees abundant opportunity to make money from oil and gas in coming decades even as investors and governments increase pressure on energy companies over climate change, its chief executive said.     But in an interview with Reuters, Ben van Beurden expressed concern that some shareholders could abandon the world's second-largest listed energy company due partly to what he called the "demonisation" of oil and gas and "unjustified" worries that its business model was unsustainable. Shell, which supplies around 3% of the world's energy, set out in 2017 a plan to halve the intensity of its greenhouse emissions by the middle of the century, based in large part on building one of the world's biggest power businesses.
