Strasbourg, who currently sits 14th in the French top flight, was promoted from Ligue 2 ahead of the current campaign.

The hosts went ahead after 13 minutes when Nuno Jóia headed home past goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, before Kylian Mbappe equalized just three minutes before halftime.

Stéphane Bahoken put the game to rest though after the hour mark when he blasted a shot into the top corner.

PSG’s dominance across all competitions this season has been well-documented, including a perfect start in UEFA Champions League group play.

The Parisians hadn’t lost an official match since their 3-1 defeat at Nice on April 30, over seven months ago.
