Neymar in devastating form as PSG extend Ligue 1 lead
Neymar scored two goals and set up two more as PSG extended their Ligue 1 lead to nine points with a 4-1 away demolition of Stade Rennais Saturday. Neymar struck both sides of the interval and assisted Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani to score, putting PSG on 47 points from 18 games after second-placed Monaco hammered St Etienne 4-0 Friday at Geoffroy Guichard. Rennes, who finished with 10 men after Benjamin Andre was sent off in the 63rd minute, replied through Firmin Mubele and stayed sixth on 25 points. Brazil forward Neymar quickly found the back of the net at Roazhon Park as he tapped in from Mbappe’s cross after only four minutes. He returned the favour in the 17th minute by setting up Mbappe in the box, the French international doubling the tally from close range. Eight minutes into the second half, Rennes reduced the arrear when Mubele finished it off after Morgan Amalfitano’s strike had struck the post. But the home side were heavily penalised when Andre picked up a second yellow card. In the 75th minute, Uruguay striker Cavani collected Neymar’s through ball before beating Tomas Koubek to score his 18th league goal in as many games. Neymar rounded it off one minute later by latching on to Mbappe’s cross. RESULTS Rennes 1 (Mubele 53) PSG 4 (Neymar 4, 76, Mbappe 17, Cavani 75) Strasbourg 2 (Martin 25-P, Mangane 52) Toulouse 1 (Gradel 30) Caen 0 Guingamp 0 Dijon 3 (Said 12, 17, Ballo 35-og) Lille 0 Montpellier 1 (Roussillon 20) Metz 3 (Cohade 28, Riviere 84, Basin 90+4) Troyes 1 (Darbion 78) Amiens 0   SUNDAY'S MATCHES Nantes v Angers, Nice v Bordeaux and Lyon v Marseille
