PSG close in on 10th French title


Paris St Germain continued their march towards a record-equalling 10th French title when goals by Neymar and Kylian Mbappe earned them a 2-1 home victory against bitter rivals Olympique de Marseille on Sunday.

Neymar’s early opener for PSG was cancelled out by Duje Caleta Car before Mbappe’s penalty sealed the win and put PSG on 74 points.

They now lead second-placed Marseille, who had a late equaliser disallowed, by 15 points with six games left and could be crowned champion next weekend.

Jorge Sampaoli’s side have a three-point lead over third-placed Stade Rennais as both teams battle it out for second place and direct qualification for the Champions League’s group stage.
