Paris edge out Nice to break club record

Paris Saint-Germain earned a club record seventh straight league win as Timothée Kolodziejczak's own goal saw off OGC Nice and took the champions 13 points clear at the top.

Paris Saint-Germain surged 13 points clear in Ligue 1 after Timothée Kolodziejczak's own goal proved the difference between the champions and OGC Nice on the south coast.

Laurent Blanc's side were far from their dominant best – perhaps with one eye on Wednesday's UEFA Champions League quarter-final first leg against Chelsea FC – yet they ground out another league victory and increased their buffer over second-placed AS Monaco FC courtesy of Kolodziejczak's 52nd-minute intervention.

Yohan Cabaye whistled an early drive just wide as the visitors sought a club-record seventh consecutive top-flight success before Nice goalkeeper David Ospina took centre stage for the remainder of the first half, pulling off fine saves to deny Edinson Cavani, Zlatan Ibrahimović and Thiago Silva.

Having thwarted the best efforts of the Paris strikers, Ospina was finally beaten by one of his own team-mates as Ibrahimović flicked on Javier Pastore's lofted pass and Kolodziejczak diverted the ball past his No1 under pressure from Cavani. Éric Bautheac went close to levelling as his free-kick curled just over but Paris held on for their 11th away win of the campaign.
