He is back and what an introduction it was. Neymar, after angling for a move away from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, unsurprisingly stunned Ligue 1 on his return.

The world's most expensive player scored a spectacular overhead kick in injury time to stun Strasbourg.

This week, his side face a mouthwatering tie against Lyon, in what looks to be an exciting weekend in the French top flight.

Friday 

Strasbourg v Nantes - 7.45pm BT - Sport Extra 2

The hosts on Friday night were on the end of that last-minute wonder goal from Neymar last weekend. 

Just as the relegation contenders looked like they might pick up an unlikely point, the world's most expensive player fires in an overhead kick in injury time. 

Strasbourg's opponents this week, Nantes, had opposite fortunes as Abdoulaye Toure scored six minutes from time to move Christian Gourcuff's side into third after three straight wins. 

Gourcuff said ahead of the game: 'It's much nicer to be near the top of the table because it has a good impact on team spirit.

'I don't want to forecast what we can achieve this season but we have to stay clear in our thoughts and I think we can still improve.'

Saturday 

Marseille v Montpellier

Andre Villas-Boas' side were involved in the game of the weekend last week as they edged a seven-goal thriller against second-from-bottom Monaco.

Marseille came from 2-0 down to snatch all three points at the Stade Louis.  

Their opponents this week, Montpellier, also showed character to come from behind to win against Nice.

Villas-Boas needs to keep up his side's momentum or he will be under pressure after a mixed start to the season, it will be interesting to see whether they will have more confidence against Montpellier.

Nice v Dijon

As previously mentioned, Patrick Vieira's men suffered a setback in their hunt for Champions League football last week against Montpellier.

They face an easier opponent on Saturday in Dijon, who sit bottom having lost four of their first five matches.

The visitors to the Allianz Riviera will hope picking up their first point of the season on matchday five will kick-start their season.

Bordeaux v Brest

Both these sides enjoyed good results last weekend as Brest held second-placed Rennes to a 0-0 draw.

Whilst Bordeaux eased past Metz 2-0 after scoring twice in the opening 10 minutes.

Both teams languish in mid-table but a win for either side could propel them into European contention.

Stade Reims v Monaco - 7pm - BT Sport Extra 2         

Leonardo Jardim's side are in trouble. They sit 19th and after throwing a two-goal lead away against Marseille last week, they are in a race against time to turn things around.

Their opponents this week, Stade Reims, also lost, and have had a mixed start to the campaign.

To their credit, David Guion's side have only conceded two goals this season, which will prove vital if they are to mount a European push. 

Jardim pinpointed what his side's problem has been the season and how to change that.

The Monaco boss said: 'This season, we've already conceded 14 goals. We need to stay stronger.

'We need to resolve the defensive issue. We need to be
