PSG beats Troyes to extend their lead at the top of the table.

1 Min Read

Paris St-Germain moved closer to clinching the Ligue 1 title with a routine victory at Troyes.

PSG were dominant playing in their first match since suspending World Cup winner Lionel Messi.

Xavier Chavalerin pulled a goal back for Troyes late on, only for PSG to add a third through Fabian Ruiz.

PSG, who came into this match having lost three of their past six games, now need just seven more points to win a record 11th French title.

They are six points clear of second-placed Lens with four more fixtures remaining this season.

Troyes stayed 19th, 12 points off safety, and must win all of their remaining games – and hope results go their way – to pull off an unlikely survival.
