Caen 3-0 Lyon

Caen celebrate
Caen are battling relegation

Paris St-Germain need only one point from their final two games to win the French title after second-placed Lyon were easily beaten by struggling Caen.

PSG went six points clear of Lyon on Friday night with two games left following a 6-0 thrashing of Guingamp.

And Lyon failed to keep the pressure on as Nicolas Benezet scored twice late in the first half, the second goal a good burst into the box and a powerful shot.

Sloan Privat sealed it late on as Caen moved five points above the drop zone.

Laurent Blanc's PSG, who are aiming for a third consecutive title, are looking to become the first team to win all four domestic trophies in France.

They won the Champions Trophy - the country's Community Shield - at the start of the season and the French League Cup. PSG face mid-table second tier side Auxerre in the French Cup final on Saturday, 30 May.

Now the beaten Champions League quarter-finalists need only one point against seventh-placed Montpellier or 17th-placed Reims to win their fifth domestic title.
