Paris: Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic extended his league leading goal tally to 24 as his brace inspired Paris Saint-Germain to a come-from-behind 2-1 victory over Nancy at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.

The victory gives the capital side a five-point cushion over second-placed Lyon, who host Marseille in the final match of the weekend on Sunday.

Elsewhere in Ligue 1, relegation candidates Evian thrashed Sochaux 5-1 and Troyes eased past Reims 4-2 respectively as both teams took a huge step towards avoiding the drop.
