Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi were among the goals as Paris Saint-Germain turned in a counter-attacking clinic to beat Marseille.
PSG spent most of Sunday proving that it is good to have two of the best players in the world.
The Parisians were not always good, but they rely heavily on their top stars, who impressed in a 3-0 win that took them eight points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table.

After being pinned back for the first 20 minutes, PSG exploded.
Mbappe started the show, darting behind the Marseille backline, taking on to Messi’s wonderful pass, before finding the bottom corner.
Messi followed shortly after, this time Mbappe turning provider with a cross for the Argentine to give the leaders a 2-0 lead.
The 35-year-old’s simple finish was his 700th goal at club level, and he is now just one goal away from matching Cristiano Ronaldo’s all-time European record.
The duo hit on the break again shortly after half-time, Messi this time provided the pass, with a lovely curled chip into the path of Mbappe.
The forward buried it into the far corner with the outside of his boot for his 200th goal in a PSG shirt to level up with Edinson Cavani as the club’s all-time goal scorer.
Marseille on the other hand had some good chances as the half wore on, but Gianluigi Donnarumma made a series of good saves to keep them out as PSG’s backline produced a handful of important clearances.
For all of the criticism levelled at PSG and head coach Christophe Galtier, the Ligue 1 leaders still have Mbappe and Messi.
That, as it turns out, is a good thing.
