PSG have now taken four consecutive victories in the domestic league. The team will be hoping to continue this run into the Champions League were a difficult game against Real Madrid awaits them. For the time being, this victory againstBastia gives them some breathing space at the top of the French league.

The race for the league title was much more close last campaign, but it looks like PSG may wrap up the title with several games remaining if the league carries on in a similar trend. They have already opened a five-point advantage in the table. For long periods of the game, it looked like PSG were heading towards a 0-0 draw. The resistance from the home team was finally broken by star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the 72nd minute. He doubled PSG’s advantage in the 83rd minute to kill any hopes of a comeback from Bastia. It was important for PSG that Ibrahimovic scored these goals since the striker has been looking out of sorts this season.

“We were expecting a difficult match and it was.It’s always difficult away to Bastia. I told my players they would have to be patient and play to our strengths, our technical quality, our philosophy. We had to keep plugging away, pass the ball better. In the end, Bastia started to tire. The main thing is to keep winning our matches because the league is a marathon,” said Blanc.”It’s a good result because we won a very difficult match.We all remember our bad performance here last season [a 4-2 loss], but today we got the three points and keep moving forward in our quest to win trophies,” said Ibrahimovic.
