Ancelotti's side were saved by Gameiro's late strike

Paris Saint-Germain's 1-0 win over defending champions Montpellier, thanks to a late Kevin Gameiro goal at the Parc des Princes on Friday, moves them eight points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

Gameiro, on as a second-half substitute for Clement Chantome, netted an 81st-minute winner when it looked like Carlo Ancelotti’s side were going to be frustrated by La Paillade.

Credit to Rene Girard’s men, they were good value for at least a point and played some fantastic football at times, but their lack of cutting edge let PSG off the hook.

An underwhelming performance from the league leaders but a result that puts the pressure back on Lyon heading into the rest of the weekend’s games.

PSG, though, can now turn their eyes fully towards an enticing Champions League quarterfinal clash with Barcelona on Tuesday.

Here are six things we learned from the match.
