Nancy 1-2 Paris St-Germain

Edinson Cavani scores for PSG
Uruguay international Edinson Cavani is the leading scorer in Ligue 1 this season

Edinson Cavani scored his 12th goal of the season as Paris St-Germain continued their recent improvement with a 2-1 win at Nancy that lifted the champions into second place in Ligue 1.

Cavani's ninth league goal secured a fourth win in five games as bottom club Nancy lost a third game in a row.

A long-range free-kick from Lucas put PSG ahead before Cavani intercepted a backpass to make it 2-0 by half-time.

Ex-Charlton midfielder Alou Diarra headed one back on his Nancy debut.
