Paris Saint-Germain moved three points clear at the top of Ligue 1, thanks to a 4-0 win over FC Lorient on Friday. The win moves Laurent Blanc’s side three points clear at Le Championnat’s summit ahead of AS Monaco’s trip to face Lille OSC on Sunday.
Edinson Cavani netted a double, while Lucas Moura and Jeremy Menez were also on the score sheet at the Parc des Princes. It was another impressive performance from PSG who, once again, dominated their opponents and won by four goals for a second consecutive league game.
Blanc rang the changes, making no fewer than five changes to the side that drew 2-2 with AS Saint-Etienne last week, but it made no difference. PSG’s rotated stars still had far too much for struggling Lorient who rarely threatened the hosts.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic was absent through injury, but Cavani deputised more than adequately, and his two goals move him top of the Ligue 1 scoring charts until Sunday at least. Lorient are now perched just three points above the relegation zone, having played one game more than their rivals, following the heavy defeat.
