Match ends, Caen 0, Paris Saint-Germain 3.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Angel di Maria scored excellent goals as Paris St-Germain went 19 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 overnight with victory over Caen.
Di Maria opened the scoring against their fourth-placed opponents from 16 yards out.
Ibrahimovic then failed to score in a remarkable passage of play when Remy Vercoutre saved his first effort, the Swede hit the bar and from the follow-up his bicycle kick was saved.
He sealed victory before the break with a first-time half-volley from 20 yards.
Di Maria scored his sixth league goal since his move from Manchester United by deftly flicking Lucas Moura's header over the keeper in the second half.
Caen won a late penalty but Andy Delort's effort was saved by Kevin Trapp.
PSG, chasing their fourth consecutive title, remain unbeaten domestically and have the best first-half points total to a Ligue 1 season with 51.
No side has ever gone unbeaten throughout a Ligue 1 season.
Monaco cut PSG's lead from 20 to 19 points with an unlikely 0-0 draw against Troyes later on Saturday.
Bottom club Troyes picked up only their eighth point of the season despite having Mouhamadou Dabo sent off after three minutes for conceding a penalty. Lacina Traore missed the spot-kick for Monaco.
Third-placed Angers could reduce the lead at the top to 17 points if they beat St Etienne on Sunday.
