PARIS - Teenager Adrien Rabiot came off the bench to spur French title-holders Paris Saint-Germain past promoted Guingamp 2-0 on Saturday, as the midfielder netted a decisive injury-time goal at the Parc des Princes.
PSG's stuttering start to the season appeared set to continue as the woodwork twice denied Laurent Blanc's side, but 18-year-old Rabiot struck a minute into stoppage time before Zlatan Ibrahimovic made the points safe.
The win takes PSG to within a point of leaders Marseille, who host third-place Monaco today.
"The first half was laboured. If the free-kick that hit the post had gone in it could have been different. We were going to sleep in the first half, but we didn't concede a goal which is an improvement," said Blanc.
"And we can also point out the players didn't give up even though there were just a few minutes left (before we scored). They were rewarded for that."
Lyon crashed to a 2-1 defeat away to Evian.
Goals were in short supply elsewhere on Saturday, with Rennes playing out a 0-0 draw with Lille, while Sochaux's home clash with Ajaccio and Reims against Nantes also ended 0-0.
