The home side were presented with a glorious chance in the opening minutes as Marco Verratti stole the ball in midfield and offloaded a pass to Edinson Cavani, but the striker could not make the most of it as he volleyed straight at the goalkeeper from close range.

Alexandre Lacazette almost gave the visitors a surprise lead when he crashed a shot against the post after beating two defenders.

However, PSG then made Lyon pay as Cavani grabbed a goal for his side by glancing a header in at the near post.

Ibrahimovic converted a penalty with a chip down the middle of the goal just before the break to leave his team 2-0 up at half time.

PSG took control of the game after the interval and increased their lead in the 60th minute when Thiago Silva prodded home having been found by Lucas from a corner.

With the home side 3-0 ahead, Verratti took control of the midfield and began to exhibit his passing range by continuously finding balls in behind the visitors' defence.
