Paris St-Germain maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 3-0 win at Reims that moved them seven points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

The visitors moved ahead when Lucas Moura exchanged passes with Zlatan Ibrahimovic before finding the corner of the net.

Marco Verratti crossed for Jeremy Menez to add a second before Reims' Grzegorz Krychowiak missed from the spot.

Striker Ibrahimovic controlled a poor clearance to thump in a third.

It was the Swede's ninth of the season for Laurent Blanc's Paris, whose last defeat came at Reims in March.

Second-placed Lille host Toulouse, while Monaco, who are third, travel to Nantes on Sunday.
