  • Balotelli trolls PSG They’re just like Guingamp

Brazilian defender Dani Alves struck late to give Paris St Germain a 2-1 victory at Nice on Sunday as they extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to a massive 17 points.

Paris Saint-Germain right-back Dani Alves scored a late victor to help his side beat Nice 2-1 on Sunday in the Ligue 1 football championship.

The kickoff was brought forward to 1200GMT to ensure maximum exposure in Asia and PSG, who now have 83 points from 31 games, were keen to impress.

Balotelli hit the woodwork for a second time before Alves headed in from Adrien Rabiot's cross to secure PSG's victory.

Having netted four times against Guingamp, Alassane Plea turned provider with an exquisite throughball into the path of Saint-Maximin, who duly slotted past the onrushing Areola.

PSG bounced back from recently being eliminated in the Champions League round of 16 by title holders Real Madrid, who put together a 5-2 win on aggregate.

"You can buy great players but not a team".

"It's always shameful to see a big team like PSG go out of the Champions League, but Real were better", the Italian striker said.

Their best performance remains reaching the quarter-finals stage which they've managed in four of the previous six seasons. Marseille and Lyon are also big teams. They really did deserve to lose.

Nice, who finished third a year ago, now sit eighth in the table and the Twitterverse was quick to let Mario know. "I do not care whether we are playing PSG or someone else". I'm happy with all the players.
