PARIS, APRIL 22: Paris Saint-Germain are on the brink of winning another French Ligue 1 title after crushing Lyon 4-1 on Sunday, the same scoreline by which they beat Barcelona in the Champions League in midweek.

All the goals came in the first half at the Parc des Princes, with a Nemanja Matic own goal and a Lucas Beraldo effort having PSG two ahead inside six minutes.

Goncalo Ramos then scored twice either side of an Ernest Nuamah strike as the Parisians cruised to victory despite the rested Kylian Mbappe spending the whole evening on the bench.

PSG, who have not lost a Ligue 1 game since September, are now 11 points clear of Monaco in second with just five matches remaining.

It means that they will secure a 10th French title in 12 seasons if they win at Lorient in a rearranged game on Wednesday and Monaco fail to beat Lille at the same time.

"Im very happy with the result, with the match, and with the week," PSG coach Luis Enrique told broadcaster Amazon Prime.

He rested Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele among five changes to the side that started in last Tuesdays 4-1 win away to Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

"After the match in Barcelona, you never know how its going to be, but I think the team was extremely precise and I am very confident and very happy."    —AFP
