Paris Saint-Germain extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to 24 points Sunday night after a 2-0 win over Saint-Etienne at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

Two second-half goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic gave the away side the three points, the 13th and 14th goals the Swedish forward has scored against Les Verts since moving to France.

Saint-Etienne battled well in the first half, limiting PSG's time on the ball, breaking up the tempo of the game and trying to hit manager Laurent Blanc's team on the break.

However, in the second half, manager Christophe Galtier's men didn't have the quality to push forward in the final third. Kevin Trapp was rarely troubled in the PSG goal and when Ibrahimovic put his team 1-0 up, the result was all but guaranteed.

Good play between midfielder Lucas Moura and Serge Aurier created space down the right, the Ivorian defender's cross finished by Ibrahimovic at the back post.

A late goal sealed the result and PSG remain unbeaten in the league for 32 games, matching FC Nantes' 21-year record. Although, Nantes' record occurred during the same season.
