Lorient 1-2 Paris Saint Germain

Edinson Cavani
Paris St-Germain have not lost in 12 Ligue 1 games and three Champions League matches this season

Paris St-Germain moved to within one point of Ligue 1 leaders Marseille after beating struggling Lorient.

The hosts took a surprise lead at the end of the first half through Raphael Guerreiro's shot from a tight angle.

But unbeaten PSG, who have won the domestic title in both the last two seasons, fought back and equalised with Edinson Cavani's rebound effort.

Substitute Jean-Christophe Bahebeck scored the winner eight minutes later, converting from Marco Verratti's pass.

The win means Laurent Blanc's side have won six and drawn six of their 12 league matches and are second, although they have played a game more than Marseille, who face Lens on Sunday.

Lorient have now lost seven of their last eight matches and are 17th in the 20-team table.
