Paris Saint-Germain made light work of Amiens, while Nice and Saint-Etienne also secured wins in Saturday's Ligue 1 action.
Amiens SC 0-3 Paris Saint-Germain
League leaders Paris Saint-Germain steam rolled past a struggling Amiens with a 3-0 victory at the Stade de la Licorne.
After a goalless second half, a penalty from Edison Cavani got matters underway for Thomas Tuchel’s side which in turn opened the doors for Kylian Mbappe and Marquinhos to join in the act.
The home side were forced to end with ten men following the dismissal of Khaled Adenon after the 66th minute mark as PSG opened up a 13-point lead at the top over second place Lille.
OGC Nice 1-0 Bordeaux
A penalty in the first half from Allan Saint-Maximin was all that separated Nice and Bordeaux, with hosts running out 1-0 winners at the Allianz Riviera.
It’s a big three points for Nice which sees them move up four spots to sixth place.
Guingamp 0-1 Saint-Etienne
Saint-Etienne secured back-to-back wins after seeing off struggling Guingamp 1-0 at the Stade da Roudourou.
Following a 3-0 victory at home against Dijon FCO, Etienne made a fast start to the game by finding the net as early as the sixth minute through Wahbi Khazri.
