Patient PSG quell ten-man Brest

Paris Saint-Germain FC scored all three goals after half-time as they eventually broke down a Stade Brestois 29 side who played for nearly an hour with only ten men.

Paris Saint-Germain FC earned a fourth straight league success without conceding a goal as three second-half strikes saw off Stade Brestois 29.

PSG, Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille all had 35 points after last weekend's action and Carlo Ancelotti's side laid down the marker for the other title hopefuls with a resounding victory. Their task was made easier when the home side had Abdoulwhaid Sissoko sent off after 34 minutes for a foul on Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Zlatan Ibrahimović's 18th goal of the season, a near-post finish from Christophe Jallet's cross, broke Brest's resistance before Kevin Gameiro's drive made it 2-0 after 73 minutes. Bernard Mendy's late own goal rounded off the scoring.
