PSG beat Lyon to go atop in France

A first half injury-time goal from Blaise Matuidi gave Paris Saint-Germain a 1-0 victory in their top-of-the-table clash with Lyon at the Parc des Princes on Sunday as the capital club moved top on goal difference.

Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose steady supply of goals has constituted the bedrock of PSG’s tilt at a first league crown since 1994, this time turned provider, cutting in from the right to whip over a cross for Matuidi, lurking on the edge of the box.

PSG’s success before a 43,000 crowd saw them move ahead of both Lyon and Marseille on goal difference with all three having garnered 35 points from 18 games.

It was Lyon’s third home defeat of the season.
