Another PSG win breaks the record

Paris Saint-Germain set a new Ligue 1 record on Wednesday as they stretched their unbeaten run to 33 games.

The French side eased past Lorient 3-1 at the Parc des Princes, in a match where head coach Laurent Blanc made six changes from the side that equalled the record that was set over 20 years ago by winning at Saint-Etienne on Sunday.

Edinson Cavani justified his rare selection in the starting 11 by opening the scoring in only six minutes of play before Lorient replied midway through the first 45 mins with an equaliser from Raphael Guerreiro.

The Parisian giants regained the lead with a Zlatan Ibrahimovic strike to make it 2-1 10 minutes into the second half and Layvin Kurzawa scored the third and final goal of the night.

The coach expressed his concerns, as PSG were not at their best, missing a couple of chances during the match.

"We can be very pleased tonight. The record, it really is something", Blanc said after his side's 14th win in a row.

"About the match itself though my feelings are mixed. We were not in total control at certain times.

"But I have to take my share of the responsibility. After rotating the team, it is normal to have a few problems."
