Match ends, Nice 1, Paris Saint-Germain 3.
Javier Pastore scored twice to help Paris St-Germain beat Nice and return to the top of Ligue 1.
The Argentina midfielder slotted in a low shot after Lucas Moura's pass but Mathieu Bodmer levelled with a drive after Said Benrahma's delivery.
Pastore made it 2-1 on the rebound after brilliantly juggling with the ball before his initial shot.
Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani made it 3-1 from the penalty spot after he was fouled by Jordan Amavi.
It was PSG's fourth successive league win and it moved them a point above Lyon.
Laurent Blanc's team had dropped to second following Lyon's 2-0 win over Bastia on Wednesday.
The French title-holders were beaten 3-1 by Barcelona in the Champions League but responded with their sixth successive win over Nice, despite being without Sweden striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic because of suspension.
