PSG were scheduled to only have six days between their two seasons - but now have two and a half weeks

Champions League finalists Paris St-Germain will have another 12 days to prepare for the 2020-21 season after the French authorities agreed to rearrange their opening Ligue 1 game.

PSG were due to play Lens on Saturday, six days after losing the Champions League final 1-0 to Bayern Munich.

But it will now be played on Thursday, 10 September - straight after the international break.

The French top flight started last weekend without PSG.

Last season's Ligue 1 was the highest profile European league which did not resume after the coronavirus pandemic, with PSG - who were 12 points clear at the top - handed the title.
