Bastia 0-3 Paris St-Germain

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored Paris St-Germain's 100th goal of the season as the French champions strengthened their lead at the top of Ligue 1.

The Sweden striker gave PSG an early lead at mid-table Bastia by heading in Lucas Moura's pinpoint cross.

Ibrahimovic's aerial flick in the centre circle set up Ezequiel Lavezzi to smash in shortly after, before the Argentina forward rounded Bastia keeper Jean-Louis Leca to slot in a late third.

PSG are eight points clear of second-placed Monaco, who kept pace with a 2-1 home win against relegation battlers Sochaux.

But the principality side face a tough task to overhaul Laurent Blanc's men, who stretched their unbeaten run to 10 matches with a comfortable win in Corsica.

PSG have netted 16 times in their last five games, while Ibrahimovic's opener, his 23rd league goal of the season, brought up a century of goals in their 41st competitive match of the season.

Now they face Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League last-16 on Wednesday, holding a convincing 4-0 lead from the first leg in Germany.

Monaco's Dimitar Berbatov

Meanwhile, ex-Manchester United and Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov netted his first Ligue 1 goal to set Monaco on their way to beating second-bottom Sochaux.

Colombia midfielder James Rodriguez doubled their advantage after the break before Edouard Butin netted a late consolation for the visitors.
