Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani scored spectacular goals as unbeaten Paris Saint-Germain defeated Bastia 4-0 to provisionally move ahead of Monaco at the top of Ligue 1 on Saturday.
On PSG's first goal, Lucas' cross from the right inadvertently struck Hervin Ongenda and the ball looped up and behind Ibrahimovic, who showed flexibility to volley it over his shoulder with the back of his heel.
Moments later, Ibrahimovic made it 2-0 after 15 minutes when Lucas' cross went in off his shoulder.
Cavani replaced Ibrahimovic at half-time and dribbled past three players down the left before slotting in from a tight angle. He added a late penalty for 4-0.
"Ibra doesn't surprise me, we know he's capable of scoring goals like that. We're very lucky to have a player like this, who is able to break the deadlock in any match," PSG coach Laurent Blanc said. "Cavani's goal was just as good, it wasn't easier to score. I'll be perfectly happy if he scores more like that."
Monaco, the only other unbeaten side, can retain top spot on goal difference if they win by three goals at Sochaux on Sunday.
