FULL-TIME

Nantes 0-2 Paris St-Germain

First-half goals from Edinson Cavani and Blaise Matuidi mean Paris St-Germain have won six Ligue 1 matches on the bounce. Another three victories and the trophy will be returning to the Parc des Princes for the third successive season. And Laurent Blanc's men can even afford a draw and still pip Lyon.

The PSG players fistpump and hug each other in celebration as referee Ruddy Buquet toots his final whistle. The Parisians reclaim their three-point advantage over nearest rivals Lyon at the top of Ligue 1.

INJURY TIME

Nantes 0-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

Credit to the Nantes fans. A sea of yellow-shirted supporters have not stopped bouncing in the home stand, providing plenty of vocal support for the side. But the players, frankly, haven't given them much to cheer. And they are nearly groaning as Edinson Cavani has a glimpse of goal, only to fail to hit the target

INJURY TIME

Here is the fourth offficial, who is armed with a big electronic board. A number four flashes up, telling us that there will be a minimum of four minutes stoppage time.

Another goal for PSG would end any lingering Nantes hopes of setting up a grandstand finish. Edinson Cavani, moments after being flagged offside when clean through, tees up Adrien Rabiot. But the brilliantly-named Nantes defender Papy Djilobodji races across to cut the ball and concedes a corner.

SUBSTITUTION

Nantes 0-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

PSG boss Laurent Blanc makes a late change as Javier Pastore is withdrawn for Ezequiel Lavezzi, who was left out tonight despite scoring a hat-trick against Lille last weekend. Not a bad substitute to have up your sleeve.

Andrew Priestley: This is a very big win for PSG tonight, they're under some serious pressure to win the title after their European failings.

Well it took a while but Napoli finally made their numerical advantage count. Milan were reduced to 10 min with just 50 seconds on the clock and held out until the 70th minute.

But Rafa Benitez's men turned the screw to earn a comfortable win and move within four points of third-placed Lazio with four matches left. The race for the Champions League is on!

Napoli 3-0 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

Two minutes of stoppage time in Naples. And the home side almost net a fourth. Belgium international Dries Mertens is allowed a criminal amount of space on the edge of the Milan box, picking his spot with a curler. But Milan keeper Diego Lopez throws himself across to save.

French Ligue 1

Free-kick in a dangerous position close to the right touchline for Nantes. The big lads from the back saunter forward, packing the PSG penalty area. Oh dear! They get nowhere near the ball as a poor delivery from Remi Gomis is met by the forehead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the near post.

Half a chance for Nantes. A high ball is pumped into the PSG six-yard box from the left flank, with two yellow shirts bearing down on away keeper Nicolas Douchez as he leaps to gather. The Frenchman stays strong to claim at the second attempt.

As you can tell by the diminishing frequency of entries from France, there is not much happening in Nantes at the moment. PSG have eased off the gas a touch, but the as-it-stands leaders do not look like being troubled by a toothless Nantes side.

Milan have collapsed quicker than a pack of cards. Napoli's Manolo Gabbiadini - no relation to ex-Sunderland and Derby hero Marco - back heels into the away net. There was an element of fluke to that goal - no wonder Gabbiadini barely celebrates.

Breakthrough for Napoli! The home side's numerical advantage finally tells - and it has been coming. Napoli skipper Marek Hamsik is the man who does the damage, pouncing on a loose clearance to expertly guide a first-time shot from 20 yards into the bottom right corner. Beautiful finish from the Slovakian.

Barely seven minutes since the restart and PSG boss Laurent Blanc decides to make a change. Off comes goalscorer Blaise Matuidi, with young France midfielder Adrien Rabiot taking his place. One presumes that is because of an injury suffered by Matuidi.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic might not have stuck his name on the scoresheet (yet) but he has caused a nuisance of himself on more than one occassion. The Swede looks to latch onto Edinson Cavani's header in the penalty box and tumbles under a desperate challenge from Issa Cissokho. No penalty.

KICK-OFF

Nantes 0-2 Paris St-Germain

French Ligue 1

The 22 players who began the match all return from the changing rooms at the start of the second half. Nantes have the proverbial mountain to climb if they are going to stop PSG claiming a sixth straight Ligue 1 win.

Napoli are within the width of a post from turning Rafa Benitez's frown into a smile. Skipper Marek Hamsik flicks goalwards from close range, but sees his improvised effort bounce off the post and away to safety.

As you expect with a man's advantage, Napoli are continuing to dominate against Milan. But Rossoneri keeper Diego Lopez, who saved that opening-minute penalty to keep his side on terms, has barely been tested. Frustrated Napoli boss Rafa Benitez's face is becoming redder and redder as he stalks the touchline....

Monaco cruised to a 4-1 victory over Toulose to strengthen their grip on third place and a Champions League spot next season thanks to goals from Anthony Martial, Bernardo Silva, Joao Moutinho and Valere Germain.

Meanwhile, On-loan Liverpool striker Divock Origi scored his eighth goal of the season as Lille kept alive their hopes of a Europa League with a 3-1 win over already-relegated Lens.

Back under way at the Stadio San Paolo. Napoli straight into AC Milan's half and playing with a lot more purpose.

HALF-TIME

Nantes 0-2 Paris St-Germain

One minute of added time passes pretty uneventfully before referee Ruddy Buquet brings Nantes' misery to an end. For 15 minutes at least.

Accomplished display from the defending champions, who are bidding for a third straight title. Goals from Edinson Cavani (we think) and Blaise Matuidi (we know) are set to move Laurent Blanc's men three points clear of title rivals Lyon.

GREAT SAVE!

Nantes 0-2 Paris St-Germain

PSG keeper Nicolas Dochez has barely broken into sweat tonight. But he needs to be alert to claw away a header that was sneaking into the far corner.

While you're enjoying your half-time biscotti here's a reminder of what happened in Serie A earlier today. Roma climbed above city rivals Lazio and into an automatic Champions League place after a 2-0 victory over Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico. Seydou Doumbia and Alessandro Florenzi both found the net for Roma.

Lazio slipped down to third spot - a point behind Roma - after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Atalanta. Marco Parolo equalised for Lazio after ex-Lazio defender Giuseppe Biava had put Atalanta ahead.

Josip Ilicic's brace helped Fiorentina boost their hopes of a Europa League place with a 3-1 win over Cesena. Fiorentina move on to 52 points and are now up to fifth, two points above Genoa, and three points above eighth-placed Inter Milan, who drew 0-0 with Chievo. Veteran Antonio Di Natale gave Udinese a 1-0 away win over Hellas Verona.

Nantes have showed plenty of endeavour - but little quality. However, they almost pull one back when Venezuelan defender Oswaldo Vizcarrondo rises above marker Thiago Silva to head narrowly over the PSG crossbar from a home corner.

Paris St-Germain are looking like they could score a hatful tonight - if they want to. Only the raised offside flag from the linesman stops Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Blaise Matuidi almost adding to the tally.

What was I saying about Nantes still being in the game? Not any more, I would respectfully suggest.

PSG make their dominance count as Zlatan Ibrahimovic perfectly times his pass to the on-rushing Blaise Matuidi, who is allowed a free run from deep to fire in the second.

The spiky-haired Marek Hamsik drags a long-range effort past the post shortly while Gonzalo Higuain curls over from a good position as Napoli look to finish the half strongly, but it remains goalless at the break. Will Napoli be able to make the extra man count in the second half as AC Milan start to feel the strain of playing with 10 men.

PSG could have racked up a rugby score by now. But while they only have a slender one-goal advantage, the home side are well in with a shout.

Nantes press forward again, giving PSG's defence some food for thought. Home forward Johan Audel whips an effort over the away crossbar, before team-mate Jordan Veretout also fails to find his range.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Napoli 0-0 AC Milan

Italian Serie A

Remember that old adage about a team being better with 10 men? Well, AC Milan have just carved out their best chance of half. Salvatore Bocchetti's delightful cross from the left picks out Giacomo Bonaventura who climbs high and heads the ball against the post. A let-off for Napoli.
