Ca­vani scored from the spot, adding to Thi­ago Silva’s opener to round off a win for the Parisians, who trail Nice by a soli­tary point after the Cote d’Azur t able- t op­pers handed Guingamp a first home de­feat.

“It was a very im­por­tant match, for the three points, for the ta­ble be­cause we were at home and it was im­por­tant to be strong for the fans,” said PSG coach Unai Emery.

“Against a very de­fen­sively com­pact team, we put in a solid per­for­mance.”

Moroc­can Younes Bel­handa bagged the only goal for Nice, this sea­son’s sur­prise pack­age, in the fifth minute with a sump­tu­ous strike from the edge of the box.
