Ligue 1 wrap: Paris Saint-Germain move 13 points clear


Ten-man Paris Saint-Germain moved 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with a 4-3 victory over Bordeaux on Sunday night.

An entertaining first saw the sides enter the break at 2-2 after Edinson Cavani and Marquinhos netted for the hosts while Hwang Ui-jo and Pablo did the same for Bordeaux.

PSG then took control in the second as Marquinhos bagged his second while Kylian Mbappe got the hosts' fourth goal.

Ruben Pardo made it a one-goal deficit in the final seven minutes but PSG managed to hold on, despite Neymar's late sending off for a second bookable offence.

Saint-Etienne and Reims settled for a share of the spoils after playing to a 1-1 draw at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard.

Denis Bouanga break the deadlock in the 73rd minute for the home side, but Reims rescued a point thanks to Boulaye Dia's 94th minute strike.

Rennes rallied from behind to overcome Nimes at Roazhon Park on Sunday evening.

The visitors took a suprising lead after just one minute thorugh Nolan Roux but were pegged back by Mame Niang's equaliser six minutes later.

Rennes, however, had to wait until the 89th minute for the winning goal, with Niang completing his brace in the process.
