Neymar's free kick and Giovani Lo Celso's chip helps PSG win at Lille

04/02/2018

Paris Saint-Germain moved 11 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 after recording a 3-0 victory at Lille on Saturday.

Yuri Berchiche opened the scoring for PSG in first-half stoppage time before Neymar put the game out of reach after 77 minutes.

Giovani Lo Celso added a third with an audacious chip in the closing stages to complete a fine win for Unai Emery's side.

Edinson Cavani was back in the starting line-up for PSG as he replaced the suspended Kylian Mbappe, while Emery also called upon Dani Alves and Thiago Silva.

The visiting side, who have lost just twice in the league this season, had to wait until virtually the final kick of the opening half before taking the lead.

Lille failed to deal with Cavani's cross and Berchiche was there to finish with a low shot.

Brazil international Neymar, an injury doubt for Saturday's match, then scored his 18th Ligue 1 goal of the season with an unstoppable free kick from the edge of Lille's penalty area.

Lo Celso completed the rout with a delightful chip from just outside the 18-yard-box with just four minutes remaining.

The victory moves PSG comfortably clear of Marseille, with Lille just one point above the relegation places.
