Thiago Motta scored the only goal as Paris St-Germain defeated Lorient to move 11 points clear in Ligue 1.

Motta bundled the ball over the line after Zlatan Ibrahimovic's shot was parried by goalkeeper Fabien Audard.

PSG, who face Chelsea in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, secured their eighth successive victory in all competitions.

The defending champions are now 11 points ahead of Monaco, who host third-placed Lille on Sunday.

Ibrahimovic went close to doubling the lead for Laurent Blanc's side seven minutes into the second half but Audard tipped away the Sweden striker's fierce effort from 20 yards.

Lorient thought they had scored an injury-time equaliser but Bryan Pele's effort was ruled out for offside.
