Nice 1-4 Paris St-Germain: Angel di Maria scores twice for PSG

Angel di Maria
Angel di Maria has scored seven goals for PSG this season

Angel di Maria scored twice as Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain beat nine-man Nice.

Di Maria gave PSG an early lead then scored a fantastic first-time lob from a tight angle.

Ignatius Ganago gave Nice hope after a Marquinhos error but Wylan Cyprien was shown a second yellow card and Christophe Herelle was dismissed for violent conduct in the aftermath.

Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi scored late goals for French champions PSG.

They move five points above Nantes, who visit Metz on Saturday.
