PARIS — Paris Saint-Germain bounced back from its first loss this season by outclassing last-place Sochaux 5-0 Saturday to provisionally extend its lead to four points in the French league.
PSG captain Thiago Silva volleyed home a cross from Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the 14th minute before Argentine winger Ezequiel Lavezzi tapped in a short pass from Thiago Motta in the 47th.
Uruguay forward Edinson Cavani beat Sochaux goalkeeper Pierrick Cros in the 62nd and Ibrahimovic sealed the win with a powerful free kick in the 86th and a close-range effort in stoppage time.
Marseille coach Elie Baup was dismissed Saturday after the 2010 champion lost 1-0 to Nantes the day before. Baup was replaced by sporting director Jose Anigo who will be in charge until the winter break.
