Paris St-Germain 5-0 Sochaux

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Paris St-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored two late goals as the Ligue 1 leaders hammered Sochaux.

Thiago Silva converted Ibrahimovic's cross to give the champions the lead.

Ezequiel Lavezzi doubled their advantage early in the second half before Edinson Cavani made the game safe.

Ibrahimovic scored an 86th-minute free-kick and doubled his haul in injury-time to put PSG four points clear at the top overnight.

Second-placed Lille are at Bordeaux and Monaco host Ajaccio on Sunday.

PSG came into the game on the back of a first defeat in 37 games.

Wednesday's 2-0 reverse at Evian was the first time they had lost a match, not including on penalties or away goals, since 2 March.
