PSG nine points clear after Nice scalp

Paris Saint-Germain FC overcame OGC Nice 3-0 to restore their nine-point lead atop the Ligue 1 standings, while there were also important wins for LOSC Lille and AS Nancy-Lorraine.

Paris Saint-Germain FC responded to Olympique de Marseille's Saturday night success with a 3-0 home win against OGC Nice, restoring the capital club's nine-point lead at the Ligue 1 peak.

The visitors themselves had much to play for at the Parc des Princes, with a UEFA Europa League place in sight, but with just ten minutes on the clock Jérémy Ménez struck to put Carlo Ancelotti's men in control. Zlatan Ibrahimović scored from the spot after the break before Clément Chantôme completed the formalities to keep PSG on track for a first title since 1994.

LOSC Lille needed two late goals to earn a 2-1 win at SC Bastia and climb into fourth. A defeat was on the cards before Lucas Digne equalised on 85 minutes and Marko Baša won it in added time to move Les Dogues above AS Saint-Étienne.

AS Nancy-Lorraine secured a crucial 3-1 win against Évian Thonon Gaillard FC to move out of the relegation zone and level on points with their opponents. That result means FC Sochaux-Montbéliard drop into the bottom three, following a 2-2 stalemate with FC Girondins de Bordeaux, while FC Lorient and Valenciennes FC both prevailed 1-0 against Toulouse FC and Stade de Reims, respectively.
