Zlatan Ibrahimovic netted twice as French leaders Paris St-Germain thrashed Nantes to maintain their five-point advantage over Monaco.

The Sweden striker doubled PSG's lead from the penalty spot after skipper Thiago Silva pounced on a loose ball inside Nantes' six-yard box.

After the break, Thiago Motta fired in from Blaise Matuidi's back-post header.

Ibrahimovic crossed to Edinson Cavani for 4-0 before adding a fifth after Javier Pastore's shot was blocked.

Earlier on Sunday, Monaco had kept the pressure on defending champions PSG with a comfortable victory at Toulouse.
