Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored two second-half goals Saturday to give leader Paris Saint-Germain a 2-1 victory over Nancy in the French league despite another mediocre performance against weaker opposition. PSG looked in danger of losing a third game against a team fighting relegation in the span of three weeks when Nancy winger Benjamin Moukandjo opened the scoring with a header in the 36th minute. But Ibrahimovic equalized in the 59th before chasing a long ball from Marco Verratti to net the winner in the 62nd. The Parisian club now has a provisional five-point lead over Lyon, which hosts third-place Marseille on Sunday. Later on Saturday, it's: Valenciennes vs. Lille; Ajaccio vs. Lorient; Brest vs. Toulouse; Evian vs. Sochaux; and Troyes vs. Reims. On Friday, Saint-Etienne drew 2-2 with Rennes to remain fourth. On Sunday, Montpellier visits Nice and Bordeaux faces Bastia.
