Mauricio Pochettino claimed his first win with Paris St Germain as the French champion edged closer to the top of the Ligue 1 table by beating Stade Brestois 3-0 at home on Saturday.
PSG prevailed through goals by Moise Kean, Mauro Icardi and Pablo Sarabia to be on 39 points from 19 games, one point behind Olympique Lyonnais which salvaged a 2-2 draw at Stade Rennais.
Lille is third behind second-placed PSG on goal difference after Burak Yilmaz’s goal earned it a 1-0 victory at bottom club Nimes. Monaco moved up to fourth on 33 points with a 3-0 home victory against Angers.
Three days after a lacklustre performance during a 1-1 draw at St Etienne in Pochettino’s debut, PSG failed to impress again but at least bagged three points at the Parc des Princes.
