      GOAL! It's 5-1! PSG comfortably deal with the corner and break away on an incredibly quick counter-attack through Di Maria. The Argentine flies forward before sending a lovely through-ball into the path of Moura, who charges towards the edge of the penalty area before beating Lopes with a thumping s
    • 90'
      Great strike by Beauvue! The striker picks up the ball on the edge of the PSG penalty area and immediately unleashes a thumping strike that Trapp does well to tip round the post with a strong diving save.
    • 0'
      It was always going to be difficult for Lyon, who have been well and truly thrashed by a sublime PSG side that were comfortably in the lead from start to finish. The hosts were barely forced into breaking a sweat and were able to run riot in the final third of the pitch, where Di Maria, Ibrahimovic

      PSG head into the break with a deserved lead thanks to a blisteringly quick start to the game, but full credit to Lyon for pulling a goal back and putting in a good shift since doing so. The hosts seem to have taken their foot off the pedal slightly, which has allowed the visitors to enjoy far more

      This evening’s clash brings together last season’s top two finishers, although this campaign it has been a very different story. A mixed four months for Lyon means that they currently sit in sixth place in the table and are suffering their worst league run since August 2014, as they are now without

      Good evening and welcome to our live text commentary of today’s Ligue 1 game between Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon at the Parc des Princes.
    • 1'
      And we're off!
    • 2'
      PSG embark on a determined attack down the right flank through Aurier, who muscles his way towards the edge of the Lyon penalty area. However, at the last moment he's knocked off the ball by Bedimo, who then forces the Ivorian into pushing him to the ground near the byline.
    • 4'
      Wonderful early chance for Ibrahimovic! Di Maria picks up the ball in the middle of the pitch and immediately lifts a lovely lofted pass onto the chest of the striker. He brings it down beautifully before spinning and shooting, but Lopes does wonderfully well to keep it from finding the back of the
    • 6'
      Lyon earn themselves a free kick deep inside their own half of the pitch, and it's flung towards the edge of the PSG penalty area. Cornet rises high and does well to meet the ball, but he crashes into Luiz in the process and gives away a free kick to the hosts.
    • 8'
      Fantastic opportunity for Cavani! Di Maria picks out Cavani with a wonderful lofted pass forward that penetrates the Lyon penalty area. The Uruguayan's first touch is slightly too heavy and sends it into the path of Lopes, who darts out and cuts out the danger with an outstretched leg.
    • 10'
      As expected, it's all PSG at the moment as they boss possession. Lyon are finding it incredibly difficult to get near the ball and are having to sit incredibly deep as a result.
    • 11'
      G Z. Ibrahimovic Assist Á. di María
    • 11'
      GOAL! PSG have taken the lead! Silva picks up the ball near the halfway line and immediately launches a lofted pass towards the edge of the penalty area. It's cut out by Yanga-Mbiwa but the defender can only nod his clearance down into the feet of Ibrahimovic, who immediately fires a thumping close-
    • 13'
      PSG are continuing to push forward in numbers as they look to take advantage of a slow start by Lyon, who are finding it hard to deal with the number of blue shirts flooding into their half of the pitch.
    • 15'
      Cavani sends a lovely lofted pass over to the left flank, where it finds Maxwell. The full-back darts down the wing and looks set to penetrate the penalty area, but he's clumsily fouled by Rafael just as he's about to, resulting in a free kick for PSG in a very dangerous position.
    • 17'
      G S. Aurier Assist Á. di María
    • 17'
      That was a truly remarkable cross by Di Maria, who did wonderfully well to pick out Aurier in the perfect position in front of goal.
    • 17'
      GOAL! Beautiful play by PSG! After plenty of pushing and shoving inside the box, Di Maria curls a wonderful cross into the heart of the Lyon penalty area, where Aurier times his run to perfection before sending a bullet header into the right-hand corner of the net. It's just too easy for the hosts,
    • 19'
      First chance of the game for Lyon! Rafael embarks on a quick run down the right flank before cutting into the PSG penalty area and unleashing a low shot, but it's sent slightly too near to Trapp and, as a result, is easily stopped by the German goalkeeper.
    • 21'
      Lyon embark on a long period of possession as they patiently work the ball around inside the PSG half of the pitch. It's eventually worked over to Beauvue just outside of the hosts' penalty area but Luiz is there to dispossess the striker with a strong but fair tackle from behind.
    • 22'
      Maxwell breaks down the left wing before he's pulled back by Cornet, resulting in a free kick for PSG and a yellow card for the youngster.
    • 22'
      What a chance for Cavani! Once again, Di Maria sends a brilliant lofted pass forward that bounces down the left wing and into the path of the Uruguayan. He skips into the box before toe-poking a shot towards goal, but it's scuffed slightly and ends up flying past the far post.
    • 23'
      Di Maria sends another dangerous cross into the box from the resulting set-piece, but this time Lopes is just about able to get a hand on the ball to take it away from the outstretched limbs of Ibrahimovic.
    • 24'
      G J. Ferri Assist Á. di María
    • 24'
      Grenier picks up the assist and did well to pick out Ferri in space, but that goal is solely to do with poor goalkeeping from Trapp, who really should have done better with his save.
    • 24'
      GOAL! Lyon are back in the game! Ferri picks up the ball in acres of space 30 yards out and unleashes an audacious long-range effort. It looks to be an easy take for Trapp but the goalkeeper makes a completely hash of it, parrying it out of his hands and bouncing over the line. Game on!
    • 25'
      Luiz receives a yellow card for a flailing arm that catches Beauvue in the face and results in a free kick for Lyon in a dangerous position.
    • 26'
      Oh dear! Grenier decides to shoot from the resulting set-piece but his strike is completely mishit and sails well wide of the goal, much to the frustration of his teammates.
    • 28'
      Lyon work the ball around well before Grenier picks it up just outside of the PSG penalty area, but his first touch is poor and ends up sending it looping high into the air and into the hands of Trapp, resulting in a chorus of sarcastic cheers from the home fans.
    • 30'
      A lofted pass forward from Luiz causes problems for the Lyon defence, who are unable to fully clear the danger. The ball then bounces over to Di Maria, who tries to dart into the visitors' penalty area, but at the vital moment he's dispossessed by a group of white shirts.
    • 32'
      Di Maria is clattered into by Grenier, leaving the Argentine in a heap on the floor and in serious discomfort. They take it short but fail to make it count, as Lyon are easily able to deal with the danger.
    • 34'
      Danger for Luiz! The Brazilian flies into the back of Beauvue and brings the striker down with poor a flailing arm and a stray knee. For a moment it looks as if the referee is going to show him a second yellow card but he decides to give him a final warning.
    • 35'
      Beauvue and Luiz clash once again, this time just outside of the PSG penalty area. The former tries to play a quick one-two but is blocked off by the Brazilian, sending him crashing to the ground. He holds his face and rolls around in agony, resulting in an angry response from the defender, who seem
    • 37'
      A poor attempted clearance from Silva can only find a white shirt, allowing Lyon to break away on a quick counter-attack. The ball then finds its way to Ferri, who immediately tries to pick out Grenier, but his lofted pass is poorly hit and sails out of play for a throw-in.
    • 39'
      Lyon continue to push forward and work the ball around nicely inside the PSG half of the pitch, but just as the attacking move is starting to look dangerous Grenier is caught sleeping on the ball by Rabiot, who then initiates a quick counter-attack.
    • 40'
      Almost a chance for Ibrahimovic! Di Maria flies down the right flank on a wonderful run before smashing a cross into the middle of the penalty area with the outside of his left boot, but Morel is just about able to get a head on it to stop it from finding the Swedish striker.
    • 41'
      After dealing with the resulting corner, Lyon try to push forward on a counter-attack of their own. Cornet initially does well down the right wing before teeing up Rafael, but the Brazilian is unable to find a way past Matuidi before the Frenchman knocks the ball off the full-back and out for a PSG
    • 43'
      Aurier clips Tolisso from behind and brings the midfielder crashing to the ground, resulting in a free kick for Lyon on the left wing. The set-piece is curled into the heart of the PSG penalty area but Motta is there to comfortably clear the danger with a strong header away.
    • 45'
      Lyon work the ball around really well inside the PSG half of the pitch, with the attacking move characterised by a plethora of one-touch passes. Grenier then tries to tee up Beauvue inside the penalty area, but the Luiz is there to cut out the danger with a well-timed interception.
    • 46'
      And we're underway once again!
    • 47'
      Early chance for Beauvue! Luiz steps up to try and play the striker offside, but it doesn't work and the forward is able to pick up the ball in space. He then charges forward before unleashing a thumping strike that beats Trapp before flying just past the far post.
    • 48'
      And now Di Maria goes close! Luiz launches a lofted pass over the top of the Lyon defence and into the path of the aforementioned Argentine, who brings it down beautifully before unleashing a great strike that forces Lopes into making an even better save.
    • 49'
      The first corner turns into a second, which then results in a third, and the latter finally finds a blue shirt. It meets Ibrahimovic at the far post, and the striker does well to hook it back into play, but Lyon do just as well to clear the danger before the ball can reach a teammate.
    • 50'
      Lyon push forward well after Luiz loses possession in a dangerous position, allowing Bedimo to fly down the left flank. He then tries to curl a deep cross towards Beauvue, but it's slightly overhit and sails harmlessly out of play.
    • 52'
      Lyon come back once again and earn themselves a free kick on the left wing after Cornet is clumsily fouled. Grenier tries to find a white shirt with a deep cross, but, like Bedimo's a few moments ago, it's completely mishit and flies well wide of the PSG goal.
    • 54'
      Chance for PSG! Di Maria chips a beautiful pass over the head of Bedimo and into the path of Aurier, who charges into the right-hand side of the Lyon penalty area before unleashing a low cross. Just as he does so he's clattered into by the aforementioned left-back, sending him flying into the advert
    • 55'
      What a chance for Luiz! DI Maria sends the resulting set-piece curling into the heart of the penalty area, where it finds the Brazilian, but his contact with the ball isn't particularly clean and he sends his headed effort a few yards wide of the near post.
    • 57'
      A half-hearted Lyon attack breaks down, allowing PSG to fly forward on a quick counter-attack. Ibrahimovic leaves the ball for Di Maria, who then skips towards the edge of the penalty area, but Bedimo does wonderfully well to dart back and dispossess the Argentine with a lovely tackle from behind.
    • 58'
      Motta clatters into Tolisso and brings the midfielder crashing to the ground with a late challenge, resulting in a free kick for Lyon and a yellow card for the Italian.
    • 59'
      Again, Grenier has a good opportunity to launch a dangerous cross into the PSG box from the resulting set-piece, but he completely scuffs his lofted pass and sends it flying out of play for a goal kick.
    • 61'
      G E. Cavani Assist Á. di María
    • 61'
      That was another lovely cross from Di Maria, who has easily been PSG's best player thus far.
    • 61'
      GOAL! Cavani re-establishes PSG's two-goal lead! The hosts work the ball around wonderfully well before Di Maria whips a lovely cross into the middle of the box, where it finds the aforementioned Uruguayan, who immediately sends a curled half-volley past Lopes and into the back of the net.
    • 63'
      PSG revert to moving the ball around well deep inside the Lyon half of the pitch, with the visitors failing to put the hosts under enough pressure. It's far too easy for the league leaders at the moment, and they're finding a lot of joy in the final third as a result.
    • 65'
      Di Maria picks up the ball on the right wing and immediately embarks on a great run into the middle of the pitch. He's just about to set up Cavani after reaching the edge of the Lyon penalty area but just as he's about to do so Morel sticks out a foot to stop him from doing so.
    • 66'
      What a miss by Cornet! PSG look slightly sloppy at the back, allowing Grenier to chip a volleyed pass into the hosts' penalty area. It finds the aforementioned forward, but he's a mile offside and ends up blasting his close-range effort well over the top of the crossbar.
    • 68'
      PSG have taken their foot off the pedal slightly but are still finding it easy to boss possession in the middle of the pitch. Lyon's inability to put enough pressure on the hosts is making it incredibly comfortable for the leaders.
    • 70'
      SI M. Verratti SO Á. di María
    • 70'
      Rabiot makes his way off the pitch to be replaced by Rabiot, who receives a booming cheer as he comes on.
    • 71'
      A deep cross from Maxwell fails to find Ibrahimovic but bounces over to Di Maria, who controls the ball well before earning his side a corner. He tries to whip it to the near post but it's poorly hit and fails to trouble the Lyon defence.
    • 72'
      SI Sergi Darder SO Á. di María
    • 72'
      Darder comes on to take the place of Grenier, who has had a difficult night.
    • 74'
      Matuidi is clumsily fouled 35 yards away from goal, resulting in a free kick for PSG in a dangerous position. Luiz steps up and unleashes an almighty strike that dips violently at the last moment, but Lopes does well to parry it away with a strong save.
    • 76'
      Tolisso slides into Aurier and dispossesses the full-back before receiving a boot to the knee, leaving him serious discomfort. Thankfully, he's about to get back to his feet after receiving medical treatment.
    • 77'
      GOAL! Lopes goes the right way but is unable to get a hand on Ibrahimovic's strike, which is sent under the Lyon goalkeeper and into the bottom left-hand corner of the net. PSG's wonderful night just keeps getting better and better!
    • 77'
      PENALTY! A low cross from Aurier isn't dealt with well enough by the Lyon defence, allowing Ibrahimovic to pick up the ball just inside the penalty area. The striker skips past the defender with a wonderful piece of skill before being tripped to the ground, leaving the referee with no choice but to
    • 79'
      PSG are now just patiently passing the ball around inside the Lyon half of the pitch as if they don't have a care in the world. Since the start of the second half it's been incredibly easy for the hosts, whose wonderful run is set to continue.
    • 81'
      Tolisso embarks on a wonderful run down the left flank before cutting the ball back to Cornet. The latter's first touch is poor but he's just about able to poke a pass to Darder, but the Spaniard sends his 20-yard strike well over the top of the crossbar.
    • 82'
      SI Lucas Moura SO Á. di María
    • 82'
      Matuidi makes his way off the pitch to be replaced by Moura for the final eight minutes of the game.
    • 84'
      SI R. Ghezzal SO Á. di María
    • 84'
      Ghezzal comes on to replace Cornet, who has been one of Lyon's better players when pushing forward.
    • 85'
      Yanga-Mbiwa loses possession on the edge of the Lyon penalty area, allowing Cavani to unleash a thumping volley, but it's slightly scuffed by the Uruguayan and ends up sailing well wide of its intended target.
    • 87'
      Beauvue uses his strength well to muscle his way past Luiz on the edge of the PSG box, but just as he's about to shoot he ends up being slightly too heavy-handed with the Brazilian defender, resulting in a free kick for the hosts.
    • 88'
      SI S. Malbranque SO Á. di María
    • 88'
      SI Marquinhos SO Á. di María
    • 88'
      Meanwhile, Malbranque comes on to replace Ferri for Lyon.
    • 88'
      Motta makes way for Marquinhos in PSG's final change of the game.
    • 89'
      Despite being three goals down, Lyon are doing well to move the ball around with purpose, but PSG have now dropped deep inside their own half of the pitch as they continue to try and turn their possession into a chance on goal.
    • 90'
      The fourth official has indicated that there will be three minutes of added time.
