Paris Saint-Germain’s 4-0 demolition of SC Bastia at the Parc des Princes on Saturday moved the defending champions three points clear of Ligue 1 title rivals AS Monaco.

Claudio Ranieri’s side face FC Sochaux-Montbeliard on Sunday and need a big win if they are to regain top spot at the end of the weekend. 

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani’s doubles mean that Laurent Blanc’s side have overtaken Les Monegasques on goal difference, now leading by two. 

Two of those goals in question were particularly special.

Ibrahimovic’s opener on 10 minutes was an incredible back-heeled volley into the top corner that demonstrated excellent agility.

Cavani’s first, 17 minutes after replacing the Swede at half-time, was a sensational solo effort that was capped with an expert finish from a tight angle.

Blanc’s men produced another dominant performance, bossing the Corsicans from first minute to last and continue to impress under Le President.

Here are six things we learned from the Bastia victory from a PSG point of view.
