Paris St Germain's Edinson Cavani scores his side's first goal

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice for Paris St-Germain who went four points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with victory over Lyon.

Edinson Cavani opened the scoring nine minutes before half-time with a flicked header before Ibrahimovic made it 2-0 with a penalty after Cavani had been fouled by Lyon keeper Remy Vercoutre.

Thiago Silva then lashed in PSG's third from close range after the break.

Ibrahimovic added another from the spot after Samuel Umtiti had fouled him.

Lyon's best effort came in the first half when striker Alexandre Lacazette rattled the bar with a fierce shot from inside the area.

Laurent Blanc's side now have 37 points from 15 games - four more than Lille, with Monaco third on 33 points.
