Paris Saint Germain 5-0 Toulouse

Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Zlatan Ibrahimovic's two goals made him Ligue 1's top scorer with nine for the season

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored twice as Paris St-Germain went 11 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 by thrashing struggling Toulouse.

The Sweden striker scored for the sixth league match in a row after Angel Di Maria's free-kick had put PSG ahead.

Lucas Moura headed a third from Gregory van der Wiel's cross, then set up Ibrahmovic's second with a solo run.

Toulouse, who have not won since the opening weekend of the season, conceded a late fifth to Ezequiel Lavezzi.

Laurent Blanc's side were disappointing in midweek as they were beaten 1-0 by Real Madrid in the Champions League, but have been imperious domestically, dropping just four points in 13 Ligue 1 matches.

Despite being without Italy midfielder Marco Verratti because of an ankle injury he suffered in Madrid, they had little trouble beating a poor Toulouse side.

The win briefly gave PSG a 13-point lead at the top, but Caen reduced that to 11, climbing from fifth to second place in the process, by beating Guingamp 2-1 later on Saturday.

Lyon, who drop to third, meet St Etienne, in fourth, on Sunday, with both sides looking to replace Caen in second.

Lorient moved up to sixth with a 4-1 victory over bottom club Troyes, with Cameroon forward Benjamin Moukandjo scoring twice.

A 90th-minute goal from Brazilian defender Hilton moved 2012 champions Montpellier three points clear of the bottom two as they beat Nantes 2-1.

Promoted Ajaccio earned a third successive win - and first away victory of the season - by beating Reims 2-1 to pull away from the bottom, while 10-man Lille snatched a late 1-1 draw at home to Bastia thanks to Djibril Sidibe's equaliser.
