Paris St-Germain 4-0 Lorient

Edinson Cavani scored twice as Paris St-Germain overcame the absence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to beat Lorient with ease.

Lucas Moura volleyed in a third-minute opener and Jeremy Menez slotted home from close range.

Cavani, playing as the focal point of PSG's attacks with Ibrahimovic out with a knee injury, headed home to kill the game off before half-time.

And after the break he had his fourth as he tapped into an empty net.

Lorient were unfortunate with injuries as striker Jeremie Aliadiere and goalkeeper Fabien Audard had to be substituted in the first 26 minutes.

The Parisians, who have yet to lose in 12 league games, are three points clear of Monaco at the top of the Ligue 1 table, albeit having played a game more.

Cavani, a reported £55m summer signing from Napoli, has scored 11 goals in 15 appearances this season - the same as Ibrahimovic, who has played one game fewer.
