Paris St-Germain 5-1 Angers

Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Paris St-Germain have dropped six points in their last 31 Ligue 1 fixtures, an unbeaten run stretching back to March last year

Paris St-Germain produced a masterclass as they thrashed Angers to go 24 points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

Zlatan Ibramhimovic opened the scoring, before Lucas Moura added a second.

A brilliant third goal saw Ibrahimovic juggle the ball in the build-up, before Blaise Matuidi crossed for Gregory van der Wiel to volley in.

Pierrick Capelle pulled one back for Angers, before Angel Di Maria scored two more for PSG, the first of which was a stunning 25-yard volley.

Angers arrived at the Parc des Princes having conceded only 13 goals in 21 league games, but had no answer to PSG's attacking superiority.

Laurent Blanc's side, who face Chelsea in the Champions League last 16 next month, have dropped only six points in Ligue 1 all season.
