Paris Saint-Germain shrugged off their indifferent start to the season to usurp Monaco at the top of Ligue 1 with a routine 3-0 victory over toothless Dijon on Tuesday. A 3-1 early season loss at Monaco had seen new boss Unai Emery's honeymoon period cut short as PSG then conceded a late equaliser at home to Saint Etienne in their next match. But they smashed Caen 6-0 away last week and similarly made light work of struggling Dijon -- without ever hitting top gear or creating many chances -- thanks to an own goal, an Edinson Cavani penalty and a Lucas header. Carlos Bacca scored for the second game in a row and M'Baye Niang netted from the penalty spot in a disjointed performance as AC Milan beat Lazio 2-0 at the San Siro on Tuesday. Bacca struck eight minutes before half-time having notched the late match-winner in Friday night's 1-0 success at Sampdoria. Niang sealed the win after earning and then slotting away a spot-kick on an evening in which his performance swung between the sublime and ridiculous.
