Ten-man Paris St-Germain moved 12 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 with a 2-0 win over Marseille.

Vitinha opened the scoring at the Stade Velodrome with a low strike past Pau Lopez in the 52nd minute. Substitute Goncalo Ramos sealed the win in the latter stages as PSG ended Marseille’s 19-game unbeaten home run.

The visitors had to play more than 50 minutes with 10 men after defender Lucas Beraldo was sent off for bringing down Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Jean-Louis Gasset’s Marseille thought they had levelled the match just before the hour mark when Jordan Veretout found the back of the net.

But his effort was ruled out for offside with Luis Henrique deemed to be obscuring Gianluigi Donnarumma’s view.PSG captain Kylian Mbappe, who is set to join Real Madrid in the summer, was substituted in the 63rd minute.

The reigning champions need just 10 points from their remaining seven games to retain the Ligue 1 title.
