Neymar scored his 25th goal of the season for PSG

Paris St-Germain maintained control at the top of Ligue 1 with a comfortable victory at Lille.

Second-placed Marseille had closed to within eight points by beating Metz 6-3 on Friday, but PSG regained their 11-point advantage on Saturday.

Former Cheltenham loanee Yuri Berchiche broke the deadlock in the first half with a low finish.

Neymar curled a superb free-kick into the top corner from the edge of the box and Giovani lo Celso added the third.
