PSG close in on Ligue 1 title

PARIS (AP) Paris Saint-Germain edged closer to the French league title on Wednesday after beating 10-man Evian 1-0 to restore its 10-point lead at the top of the standings.

France midfielder Blaise Matuidi chased a through-ball from Lucas Moura to score with a sliding effort in the 89th minute.

"Winning the league title is always tough, we have to go and get it," Matuidi told Canal Plus television. "We're having a very good season. But it's always difficult to play teams that are fighting for their survival at the end of the season. Evian gave everything."
