Blaise Matuidi: On target for PSG

Blaise Matuidi: On target for PSG

Laurent Blanc's PSG retained the French championship in midweek despite losing at home to Rennes and atoned for the muted festivities by producing a winning performance at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

After Marvin Martin saw red for the hosts following his crunching challenge on Yohan Cabaye, Marquinhos opened the scoring shortly before half-time.

Lucas Moura and Blaise Matuidi put the champions out of sight with second-half goals but Jonathan Delaplace would pull a goal back for Lille at the death.

Yet when the dust had settled, Lille found their grip on third place had slipped as rivals St Etienne had closed to within two points of snatching their Champions League berth by beating Nantes 3-1.

Guingamp assured themselves of Ligue 1 football for another season as they beat Toulouse 2-0.

With Sochaux and Evian playing each other next week there is no way Guingamp can be caught by the two sides below them who remain in trouble, and they can now revel in staying up after only being promoted a year ago.

Any nerves they may have had were put to bed with five minutes gone as Claudio Beauvue scored and then Mustapha Yatabare put away a 14th-minute penalty.

Sochaux's great run of form continued with a 2-1 victory at Rennes but they remain in the relegation zone with one more match to go.

Herve Renard's men took the lead in the 34th minute through Jordan Ayew and, after Paul-Georges N'Tep equalised in the 73rd, fellow substitute Emmanuel Mayuka restored the advantage five minutes later.

Their final-day opponents Evian remain just on the right side of the danger line after a 2-0 win over Nice.

Kevin Berigaud and Nicolas Benezet scored the goals for the home side, who face Sochaux in a winner-takes-all battle next week.

Relegated Ajaccio sent their home fans away for the summer with at least something to cheer about after beating Reims 2-1 on their final appointment at the Stade Francois-Coty.

Elsewhere, Bastia moved into the top half with a 2-0 win at Montpellier, while St Etienne kept their hopes of Champions League football alive with a comfortable 3-1 win at Nantes.

Three men were sent off as Lyon lost 1-0 to Lorient and lost their grip on fifth place, although rivals Marseille themselves stuttered to draw 1-1 at Bordeaux, while Nabil Dirar's late strike saw Monaco scrape a 2-1 victory at relegated Valenciennes.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
