Paris St-Germain picked up a narrow victory at Nice that takes them 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 thanks to an own-goal from Timothee Kolodziejczak.

Kolodziejczak turned into his own net as he tried to prevent Edinson Cavani getting a shot away in the 52nd minute.

Laurent Blanc's side have now won nine consecutive games in all competitions.

They now switch their attentions to Wednesday's home leg of their Champions League quarter-finals against Chelsea.
