PSG set league record

Edinson Cavani scored a hat-trick as champions Paris St-Germain (PSG) set a new record points total in Ligue 1 after an easy win against Ajaccio in Corsica.

Laurent Blanc’s runaway leaders moved on to 92 points with two games of the 38-match season remaining.

Uruguay forward Cavani, 29, broke the deadlock with a perfectly placed header before his clinical finish made it 2-0.

He completed his hat-trick with another header before Zlatan Ibrahimovic completed the rout in stoppage time.

The win keeps PSG 27 points clear of nearest rivals Lyon, who thrashed third-placed Monaco 6-1 and have played one game more.

Forward Alexandre Lacazette scored a hat-trick for Lyon, while former Newcastle United defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa got two and midfielder Rachid Ghezzal also found the net.
