Laurent Blanc’s side overcame Racing Club de Lens to return to top spot in the French table
Paris Saint-Germain retook first place in the Ligue 1 table with a comfortable 4-1 victory over strugglers Racing Club de Lens at the Parc des Princes.
Are the Ligue 1 champions capable of staying top…?
PSG took their time to get started against Lens, with Jean-Christophe Bahebeck missing a sitter in the opening stages-fortunately for the striker’s pride, he was flagged offside…
The imperious Zlatan Ibrahimovic was also guilty of letting a chance slip through his fingers, hitting the framework from close range.
However, PSG’s blushes were spared by David Luiz, who stepped up to hammer home a free kick minutes before the break.
Zlatan then made it 2-0 from the penalty spot.
Touzghar gave the visitors a glimmer of home with an admirable attempt…
…but then Blaise Matuidi and Javier Pastore (after great work from Ibrahimovic) put the contest beyond the relegation-threatened Northerners.
