Commentary

Minute   Description
Thank you for joining us this afternoon. That's all from us from the Parc des Princes for this Ligue 1 clash between PSG and Bastia.
Full-time in the French capital and PSG run away with a 5-0 victory. The hosts move top of Ligue 1 with Monaco, but it's up to the southern side to use their game in hand to their advantage.
90'+1 Comparing this stream of goals to PSG's first 25 minutes is such a contrast. Bastia started this match well, but now they're sinking without trace.
89' Draxler gets the assits after spotting Cavani's run and slotting the striker through on goal.
GOAL! It's 5-0 and Cavani gets his second of the match as Bastia collapse. The striker broke free of the defence and slotted with ease past Leca.
88' Diallo gets a cameo after coming on for Crivelli.
87' WHAT A MISS! PSG are rampant and Meunier should have scored as Maxwell got behind the Bastia defence to find his fellow full-back but the Belgian put his effort wide.
85' CROSSBAR! Almost a fantastic goal from Lo Celso as Draxler's corner was headed out to the forward and his half volley from the edge of the box pinged off the the upright.
83' Another sub for PSG and Nkunku has lofty heights to live up to with Guedes and Lo Celso coming off the bench to provide assists.
82' Lo Celso does brilliantly to clip the ball over Leca and provide a fantastic assist for Maquinhos.
GOAL! Yet another tap in for PSG as Marquinhos gets goals in back-to-back fixtures to stab home from two yards out as the Parisians cruise to victory.
This half is just wave after wave of PSG attack. The home side are applying so much pressure onto Bastia as the visitors just wait for the final whistle.
81' Lo Celso comes on for Verratti.
80' SAVE! A fantastic save from Leca as Cavani smashed a shot to the left, but the Bastia goalkeeper done well to push the effort away from danger.
79' PENALTY! Djiku is judged to have fouled Cavani and PSG have a penalty to pile more misery on the visitors.
78' It seems as is Emery is happy to rest players now as this fixture is all but finished. Don't be surprised to see more young players introduced off the bench in the closing stages.
76' Guedes makes an instant impact as the winger breaks through on goal but goes for the selfless option and gifts Cavani a goal.
GOAL! Third time lucky for Cavani as the striker is squared a ball for an open goal, which is his 46th in 47 matches in all competitions this season.
75' Guedes comes on for Lucas.
74' Meunier gets PSG's first card of the match.
73' Nangis comes on for Ngando.
Another disallowed goal for Cavani as Matudi headed the ball down to the striker in the box, but the referee spotted a handball from the Frenchman in the process.
71' Disallowed goal! PSG thought they had their third as Cavani tapped home an effort from Draxler, but the striker was ruled off by the linesman.
68' PSG are just playing with the ball around the Bastia box as the away side look to prevent further damage in this match with the Ligue 1 table being so close at the bottom.
66' CLOSE! Draxler almost gets on the scoresheet a a driven cross was turned towards goal by the German but went just wide of Leca's post.
64' SAVE! A corner whipped into the middle by Draxler was headed towards goal by Meunier which Leca done exceptionally well to tap over the upright.
62' The atmosphere inside the Parc des Princes has died down a bit now as the action on the pitch drops in tempo. The fans are asking for something to shout about again!
59' Mostefa gets his ninth yellow card of the season.
Meunier tries to get his second league goal for PSG since the full-back arrive from Brugge as he shot from range, but the effort was high and wide of the target.
58' First sub of the match as Danic comes on for Saint-Maximin.
57' It seems as if PSG are happy to play at a slower tempo in this half. Whilst the home side are applying pressure, it isn't with the same intensity as we seen in the first.
54' A rare chance for Bastia as the away side win a corner, but the effort into the middle was headed clear by Thiago Silva as the opportunity comes to nothing.
52' CLOSE! Almost an opportuntiy for Draxler as a sliding block from El Kaoutari falls kindly in the area, but the German was beaten to the ball by Djiku.
50' Draxler tries his best to get on the action after the German had a quiet first half. The winger cut inside to shoot but Djiku was there to block the effort with his body.
48' First corner of the half goes to PSG as Lucas whips a deep cross into the box, but his attempt goes over the red shirts despite Maxwell's best efforts to get on the end of it.
46' Bastia get the second half underway!
Half time and PSG head into the break 2-0 up. The champions have dominated this match but Bastia have every right to complain about the second goal.
44' PSG are crawling all over their opponents now. Maxwell drives into the box to try and find Draxler but Leca does well to gather the play.
42' SAVE! Fantastic footwork from Verratti to ride two tackles in the box and almost shoot, but a fantastic sliding challenge from Djiku stopped the Italian from pulling the trigger.
40' In a matter of minutes Bastia find themselves out of this match thanks to two quick goals from PSG, but in truth there are a number of reasons why the latter shouldn't stand.
38' There's a bit of controversy to report on for the second goal. Matuidi went down in the penalty box prior to the second goal, Leca went to see if the PSG player was okay only for Verratti to score from outside the box whilst Draxler stood in an offside position and blocked the goalkeeper's view. Madness.
35' Leca gets a yellow for kicking the ball away.
Meunier gets an assist to for a shot pass to the midfielder.
GOAL! What a goal as Verratti doubles PSG's lead. The Italian midfielder drived a strike from outside of the box and into the top corner.
32' Matuidi with a fantastic pass across goal to make life as easy as possible for his teammate to put PSG 1-0 up.
GOAL! Lucas hits double figures for the season. A simple tap-in for the winger as the winger drifted betweeen Saint-Maximin and Bengtsson to score an easy goal.
It's just been set-pieces and long-ranged efforts for PSG so far. Lucas tries his luck from outside of the box once again but the winger's shot is well wide of the mark this time around.
31' SAVE! Trapp is called into action for the first time this afternoon as Crivelli chests a ball down to Ngando, but the midfielder was unable to generate any power on his ranged effort and Trapp gathered with ease.
29' Bastia have made a good account of themselves in the first 30 minutes. The away side have showed flashes of their abilities on the counter-attack so far this afternoon.
27' Pressure is starting to come from PSG as Lucas wins a corner for the hosts on the right side. However, the Parisians were unable to make the most of it as Leca gathers.
25' CLOSE! A bit of pinball inside the Bastia box almost allowed Draxler to wriggle through the defence to get a shot on goal, but eventually El Kaoutari stabbed the play away.
23' CROSSBAR! Lucas smashed a shot off the crossbar from outside the box. The winger tried his luck from range and Leca was left helpless but fortunately for Bastia it cannoned off the upright.
21' Bastia need to be careful with Lucas as there have been a number of occassions already in this fixture where Saint-Maximin has been lazy and left Bengtsson exposed.
19' CHANCE! It should be 1-0 to PSG. Thiago Silva managed to escape Keita from a corner but his header from a corner was wide of the mark. Poor effort.
17' Coulibaly found himself in some room about 30 yards from goal and appeared to get ahead of himself as the midfielder lashed a shot from range well over the crossbar.
15' PSG aren't applying too much pressure on the visitors at the moment. Whilst the hosts are firmly in control of possession, they haven't done anything significant with it for some time now.
13' STAT: Bastia haven't won away at PSG in 28 attempts, losing 21 times and drawing seven.
11' Bastia show their first sign of theatening the PSG defence as Saint-Maximin gets the better of Meunier with his pace, but the winger is unable to find the end product to deliver into the box.
9' Almost an opportunity for PSG as Rabiot weighted a fantastic pass into Cavani behind the Bastia defence, but the Uruguay international was unable to get the ball out of his feet to shoot.
7' Bastia have managed to take a bit of the sting out of PSG's energetic start as they look to settle in this fixture. The away side need to do more of this if they stand a chance this afternoon.
5' SAVE! Leca is called into action early as a cross was whipped in deep to Meunier as the full-back drifted away from Saint-Maximin but his header was pushed wide by the Bastia goalkeeper.
3' PSG are applying early pressure with Bastia looking to reduce the space between their lines as much as they can as the forwards, midfielders and defenders stay rather compact.
1' PSG get the match underway!
Just five minutes until kick-off! The fans are in their seats, the atmosphere is building and the players are in the tunnel. Not long now.
With Di Maria and Motta being sent off in the previous fixture late on, it was inevitable that Unai Emery was going to make changes as he’s introduced Meunier, Raboit and Lucas into the starting XI.

Subs: Pastore, Guedes, Areola,Le Celso, Aurier, Nkunku, Augustin.
PSG (4-3-3): Trapp; Maxwell, Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Meunier; Matuii, Raboit, Verratti; Draxler, Cavani, Lucas.

Heading to Parc des Princes is a horrible fixture for even Europe’s elite, so when Bastia arrive in the capital they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Whilst they’re fighting for their top flight status, the visitors will be playing without too much pressure this afternoon.
