Kylian Mbappe suffered a late injury as Monaco twice came from behind to beat Toulouse 3-2 in a home thriller to open the new Ligue 1 season, a day after Neymar joined title rivals Paris Saint-Germain.

Radamel Falcao and Kamil Glik scored second-half headers which proved decisive on Friday after the visitors had threatened to cause a major upset.

Toulouse took a shock lead after only six minutes, a clever corner routine seeing Corentin Jean find Andy Delort outside the box, with the striker sending a clever chested pass into the area that allowed Zinedine Machach to produce a first-time finish past Danijel Subasic.

Monaco levelled after 28 minutes when Joao Moutinho swung in a corner from the left and Jemerson rose well to head in from six yards for a rare goal. 

Toulouse moved back in front after 53 minutes. Djibril Sidibe lost possession led to Jimmy Durmaz, who found Delort to send a low shot past Subasic from 20 yards.

Monaco levelled within five minutes. A clever flick from Mbappe, who previously had a penalty claim rejected, set up a left-wing cross from Jorge for Falcao, whose close-range header was too powerful for Lafont to keep out.

Moutinho then got his second assist of the night after 70 minutes, lofting in a free-kick which Glik got the faintest of touches to at the far post, a goal that proved to be the winner.
