PSG extends lead with win

Afp
Monday, January 13, 2014

PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain were not at their best in their first Ligue 1 game of 2014, but they still managed to extend their lead at the top of the table to five points after coming from behind to beat Ajaccio 2-1.

Bottom club Ajaccio had taken the lead at the Stade Francois-Coty through an early Eduardo goal, but Ezequiel Lavezzi pulled the visitors level before the break and Blaise Matuidi headed in what proved to be the winner after 74 minutes.

It was not a classic performance from Laurent Blanc's side, but they are now five points clear at the top of the table from Monaco, who were held to a 1-1 draw at Montpellier on Saturday.

Ajaccio, meanwhile, remain rooted to the foot of the table with just one win to their name all season. They have a meagre nine points and are nine points from safety, meaning that avoiding relegation already looks beyond them.
