PSG beat Nice 3-0 at the weekend to put themselves on the cusp of winning their first Ligue 1 title since 1994, with Jeremy Menez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic (pen) and Clement Chantome all notching to leave the Parisiens nine points clear of second-placed Marseille with five games to play.

It could’ve been four too, had Brazilian centre-half Thiago Silva reached Zlatan’s pass a millisecond earlier before somehow bending in a seemingly impossible shot from the narrowest angle imaginable.

Impressive. Bloody impressive.
