    • FULL TIME: PSG 3-1 Bastia. After a late scare, PSG go six points clear at the top. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+3' Modeste bursts through and goes down in the box. Looks like a penalty! No, nothing given and the referee blows his whistle for full time instead.
    • 90+2' PSG playing it around with ease now and Bastia look cooked.
    • 90+1' Bastia hasn’t given up but Maxwell clears up as Khazri tries to get in again.
    • 90' We have three added minutes here in Paris.
    • 89' So after a late scare, PSG are going six points clear at the top now.
    • 88' GOAL PSG! It’s turned in by Lavezzi for his ninth in 16 matches after Landreau palmed Menezzi’s cross into his path.
    • 87' Great run and cross from Thauvin in the box and he picks out Modeste but his header is over the bar. That’s a great chance again for Bastia to equalise!
    • 86' Bastia have only had one shot on goal and scored. But all of a sudden they have PSG in a total panic.
    • 85' And Khazri nearly scores again! Sirigu comes out into no man’s land and Khazri takes it past him. He shoots goalwards but the defence gets back to block. What are PSG doing suddenly?
    • 84' That was a superb bit of opportunism from Khazri. He’s only been on a few minutes and has been booked and scored!
    • 83' GOAL BASTIA! Khazri catches Sirigu out with an outrageous free kick! The defence was napping and he caught Sirigu off his line. A bolt from the blue!
    • 82' More tempers fraying and Khazri goes into the book. He reacted to Verratti’s challenge after winning a free kick. Somewhat harsh.
    • 81' Menez gets an earful from Ancelotti, not quite sure what for. Perhaps for kicking the ball away.
    • 80' Bastia sub: Yatabaré off for Khazri.
    • 78' Yatabaré goes in strongly on Menez this time and he too goes in the book. Ancelotti is furious as so he should be. Somehow Yatabaré escapes a caution but that was late.
    • 77' Tempers fray between Modeste and Sirigu and the Bastia man is shown the yellow card. It was a late challenge but looked a harsh booking. Almost a fifty fifty ball.
    • 76' Bastia have had just the one chance to think of. You suspect the game is beyond them now.
    • 75' PSG sub: Moura off for Lavezzi.
    • 74' The replay for the penalty showed that Moura was quite clearly brought down outside the box. The penalty should not have stood.
    • 73' Menez bursts into the box with Ibrahimovic miles offside but not interfering with play. Really should have made it three! Another good save.
    • 72' PSG sub: Pastore off for Matuidi.
    • 71' GOAL PSG! Ibrahimovic smashes the spot kick past Landreau for his 21st goal of the season.
    • 70' PENALTY PSG! Moura ghosts into the box and Palmieri brings him down.
    • 70' Menez finds Ibrahimovic and he’s just flagged offside. So nearly in although his control did let him down.
    • 69' Ibrahimovic has only been on for two minutes by my word he looks sharp already. Valencia may have their hands full.
    • 68' Lucas finds Ibrahimovic on the near post but his flick is blocked. Ibrahimovic himself crosses for Menez and his flick is wide of the post. Another good chance.
    • 67' Ibrahimovic already has two goals against Bastia this season. Not what the Corsican’s want to see a goal down.
    • 66' PSG sub: Gameiro off for Ibrahimovic.
    • 65' Good trickery on the right from Moura but his cross falls to nobody in particular. Bastia win a free kick.
    • 64' Faty is also on for Bastia for Sablé.
    • 63' Pastore again goes for goal but it’s well wide. Goal kick to Bastia.
    • 62' Bastia sub: Modeste on for Beauvue.
    • 61' Bastia preparing their first substitution. They have to go for it now.
    • 60' Well that save more than made up for the goal. That’s kept his team in the game.
    • 59' Great chip through from Verratti puts Gameiro in but his shot is excellently saved by Landreau.
    • 58' The PSG passing suddenly looking fluid again as it was in the first 20 minutes. You fear for Bastia now.
    • 57' That’s only his second league goal this season and Landreau will be mightily unhappy to have let that squirm under him.
    • 56' GOAL PSG! And it’s Menez who runs at goal before letting fly with his left foot, the ball going underneath Landreau’s body.
    • 55' Great cross from Van der Wiel finds Gameiro and his flick to the near pose is brilliantly saved by Landreau low to his left.
    • 54' The PSG fans getting restless as they lose possession and concede a free kick. Ancelotti could be thinking about substitutions. Average start to this second half.
    • 53' Lovely work from Yatabaré who goes past Pastore and Maxwell but he can’t find Ilan.
    • 52' Menez sets it to Lucas Moura but again his shot sails well over the bar. Where is the breakthrough going to come from, if at all?
    • 51' Maxwell bursts into the box and his dangerous cross is put just the right side of his own post for a corner. So close to an own goal!
    • 50' Lucas appeals for a handball on the edge of the box but the free kick goes the other way for a high foot. More frustration.
    • 49' Menez looks to do it all on his own again but he’s well tackled by Palmieri in the box.
    • 48' Sloppy overhit pass from Menez meant for Van der Wiel and it’s out for a Bastia goal kick.
    • 47' Great ball from Gameiro to Maxwell. Lucas keeps it alive on the far post but Bastia again back in numbers to clear.
    • 46' Maxwell finds Pastore but a heavy touch from Menez and Bastia bring it clear.
    • 45' We’re back underway here in Paris and for all their domination, PSG still need to find a goal in this second half to break the deadlock.
    • 45' No added time and that’s half time. Boos ring around the ground. HALF TIME: PSG 0-0 Bastia.
    • 44' Menez does well to win a corner and the home side play it short. It goes all the way back and they lose possession.
    • 43' Ibrahimovic looks on. Only three of his 20 goals this season have come at the Parc des Princes. Remarkable. Pastore shoots but his shot is easily blocked.
    • 42' It’s been a one sided first half but perhaps not so much as some people may have thought. PSG should be ahead but Bastia have defended well in numbers.
    • 41' Free kick to Bastia as Alex fouls Yatabaré. The fluidity going out of the PSG performance. Thauvin gets to the byline in the box and goes down but there’s minimal contact from Alex. Goal kick.
    • 40' Ancelotti looks a little non-plussed on the touch line. Contemplating a change perhaps? He’d rather not use any of his major players.
    • 39' Palmieri seeing more of the ball down the left. Thauvin loses out but does win a throw.
    • 38' For all PSG’s dominance, they still haven’t broken through. Another sloppy pass from Pastore concedes possession. Bastia coming back into this.
    • 37' Rothen surges forward and shoots but it’s way off target and out for a PSG goal kick.
    • 35' Bastia with a rare attack. Thauvin turns cleverly. Yatabaré finds Beauvue but he loses possession in the box.
    • 34' Pastore wins a throw on the right hand side as PSG press for the opener.
    • 33' The ball is played all the way back to Landreau and play gets underway again.
    • 32' Ilan shoved over by Pastore but the referee plays a good advantage. Pastore stays down and the ball is put out of play.
    • 31' PSG having to show a bit of patience now. Maxwell finds Menez but Bastia defend well and win a throw.
    • 30' PSG still dominating possession. Lucas drives infield and Gameiro looks offside but play goes on before Bastia clear.
    • 29' Lavezzi warming up on the sideline as Pastore lets fly but it’s wide of the goal. He’s scored two in his last three appearances so worth a crack!
    • 28' A good run and cross from Thauvin but Ilan can’t direct his header goalwards on the leap.
    • 27' PSG briefly have four on three but Menez can’t quite squeeze the ball across the box and Landreau has a goal kick.
    • 26' Menez looking increasingly menacing. PSG so close to going ahead. Menez goes to ground outside the box but nothing given.
    • 25' Great run from Menez and his cross come shot falls perfectly to Gameiro who somehow contrives to hit the post from a few yards out. What a miss!
    • 24' Bastia have gained in confidence and are stringing a few passes together themselves.
    • 23' Rothen takes the corner but it’s over the Bastia players. Chance gone.
    • 22' Bastia win a rare free kick outside the PSG box. Rothen curls in a dangerous ball and PSG just scramble clear and concede a corner.
    • 21' Gameiro appeals for a corner but his cross is just kept in by Landreau.
    • 20' Great chance for PSG and the ball drops to Moura on the half volley in the box from Gameiro’s lay off but he smashes it over on the half volley. What a chance for his first PSG goal!
    • 19' Great ball from Rothen puts Thauvin away and he bears down on goal. The angle is tight and he blasts just over. Bastia’s brightest moment and first real chance.
    • 18' Bastia break and it’s a decent cross from Palmieri. Well cut out by Armand.
    • 17' Space opens up for Moura but his left foot effort is high, wide and handsome.
    • 16' Lucas hits it and it’s deflected but the pace is taken off the ball and Landreau gets back to save easily.
    • 15' Gameiro wins a free kick just outside the penalty area for a handball from Marchal. Dangerous position.
    • 14' Pastore takes the corner but Landreau punches away well for Bastia. Back come PSG. More pressure.
    • 13' Thauvin works his way into the box but his cross is cut out. PSG counter and win a corner off Marchal. How quickly they break.
    • 12' Good skills from Menez who turns his man and shoots on goal but Marchal does well to block the shot. Lots of chances for PSG already.
    • 11' Pastore looks for Gameiro again but Bastia head the ball clear.
    • 10' Lucas loses the ball for once and Bastia get the ball into the PSG half. It’s been a rare occurrence so far.
    • 9' Maxwell’s cross finds Pastore free at the far post but he slices his volley wide. Great chance.
    • 8' Yatabaré brings down Pastore and is shown the yellow card. Dangerous free kick.
    • 7' Another nice run from Pastore but it’s out for a Bastia goal kick and they breathe again.
    • 6' Alex drives the free kick straight into the wall. Lucas finds Gameiro with a lovely ball and but there’s nobody in the box to tap in his cut back. Close again.
    • 5' Lucas ghosts past Palmieri but the defender recovers well. You feel he’s in for a torrid night. Verratti wins a free kick for PSG.
    • 4' Space to run into for Pastore who has seen a lot of the ball already. Menez nearly takes advantage of a dangerous back pass and wins a corner. Pastore finds Maxwell who shoots just wide. Close.
    • 3' Lucas feeds Maxwell but Pastore’s pass is intercepted. Bright start from the hosts.
    • 2' Some early trickery by Van der Wiel down the right and he tries to set up Lucas but Landreau is there to grab it.
    • 1' Referee Olivier Thual blows the whistle to get us underway here. Despite some notable absentees, you’d have to favour the league leaders for a comfortable win tonight.
    • 19.25 Five minutes to kick off. This season's corresponding fixture ended in a resounding 4-0 win for the capital club with Zlatan Ibrahimovic netting twice.
    • 19.20 The Corsican outfit have never emerged victorious at the Parc des Princes and club have the worst defensive record in the league with 47 goals conceded in 23 encounters.
    • 19.15 Paris Saint-Germain sit top of Ligue 1, three points ahead of Olympique Lyonnais and six over Olympique de Marseille after winning their last four games on the bounce. Bastia lie 13th after a run of three losses and a draw in their last four outings.
    • 19.10 PSG coach Carlo Ancelotti is without midfielder Thiago Motta due to suspension and Thiago Silva remains sidelined. Sylvain Armand will continue to deputise in the heart of defence with alongside Mamadou Sakho also rested. New deadline day signing David Beckham remains in London but has been included in the Champions League squad for Tuesday’s Champions League clash against Valencia, as has Siaka Tiene, who returns from international duty from Cote d'Ivoire.
