Paris Saint-Germain kept their faint hopes of a fifth consecutive Ligue 1 title alive with a 5-0 win over bottom club Bastia.Lucas Moura and Marco Verratti were on target within the space of three minutes after the half hour, although the Italy midfielder’s long-range effort arrived in controversial circumstances.
Bastia goalkeeper Jean-Louis Leca had been tending to the injured PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi and appeared to be obstructed by an offside Julian Draxler when Verratti let fly to effectively end the game as a contest.
Edinson Cavani had two goals chalked off, and scored two either side of seeing a penalty saved that he won in a personally eventful second half.
Marquinhos netted in between Cavani’s efforts and Unai Emery’s men drew level on points with Monaco ahead of the leaders’ trip to Nancy later on Saturday. Leonardo Jardim’s side boast a further game in hand.
