A solitary Javier Pastore goal saw Paris St Germain go three points clear in second place in Group F of the Europa League after an unconvincing win over Slovan Bratislava.
Pastore struck in the 63rd minute to settle a game where there was little creativity in front of goal, with the Slovakian visitors offering precious little in way of attack.
However, victory for Antoine Kombouare's side - and defeat for Salzburg - means the Ligue 1 side are clear of the Austrian side, three behind leaders Athletic Bilbao who won 1-0 tonight.
The opening stages of the game were scrappy with both sides showing attacking intent.
Mathieu Bodmer had the first shot of the game in the third minute for PSG but Nicolas Douchez was the first goalkeeper called into action when he was forced to beat out Filip Sebo's 25-yard effort.
Mevlut Erdinc and Pastore both sent in long-range efforts as the hosts started to gain the ascendancy although they had not really tested Lukas Hroso in the visitors' goal.
Jeremy Menez's shot was gathered by Hroso and Erdinc put a header over as it was one-way traffic with Juraj Halenar finally sending in an attempt on goal, although his 30-yard effort went wide.
Hroso was tested when Nene shot from distance which the keeper parried before he collected Diego Lugano's effort.
While PSG had been clearly on top, they had mainly been shooting from distance and the Slovakian team will have been happy with their efforts.
There was nothing in terms of clear-cut chances at the start of the second half and, as with the first 45 minutes, both teams were shooting from distance.
Marko Milinkovic's 25-yard shot from the left was collected by Douchez before Hroso parried Menez's effort.
Finally, 18 minutes into the second half, PSG made the breakthrough through Pastore. Nene's cross from the left wing found Pastore, who volleyed into the top right-hand corner of the goal.
Menez fired in from 20 yards and Jean-Cristophe Bahebeck blazed over as PSG looked to double their lead, while Slovan offered precious little.
As the clock ticked down Hroso parried Bahebeck's fierce effort and Bodmer fired wide but PSG were never threatened.
