FULL TIME: Lorient 1 – 3 PSG

Ousmane Dembele and Kylian Mbappe both scored twice as Paris St-Germain moved one step closer to the Ligue 1 title.

PSG will win their third consecutive title if Monaco fail to beat Lille later on Wednesday [20:00 BST].

Dembele opened the scoring and Mbappe netted with a clever flick.

Mbappe found Dembele for his second of the game, producing sublime skill by nutmegging Nathaniel Adjei and crossing into the box before doubling his own tally in stoppage time.

The France captain’s strikes made him the first French player to reach the 25-goal mark in four consecutive seasons in one of Europe’s top five leagues.

Lorient’s consolation came as Bamba Dieng headed in Benjamin Mendy’s pinpoint cross midway through the second half.

Braces from Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele saw Paris Saint-Germain ease past Lorient with a 4-1 away win to move a step closer to claiming their record-extending 12th Ligue 1 title.

Lorient spurned a golden chance through Aymen Kari in the opening stages and were made to pay when Dembele’s composed finish put the visitors ahead after 19 minutes.

Mbappe’s superb flicked finish saw Luis Enrique’s side double their lead just three minutes later, while Gianluigi Donnarumma had to be alert at the other end to deny Tiemoue Bakayoko’s header from a corner later in the first half.

PSG added a third as Mbappe turned provider after the break, jinking past Nathaniel Adjei with a cute bit of skill before setting up Dembele to slam home his second.

Mohammed Bamba’s powerful header aroused faint hopes of a dramatic Lorient comeback but the visitors saw the game out resolutely, with Mbappe finding his second in the 90th minute with a fine curling effort past Yvon Mvogo.
