Argentine international Angel Di Maria was the star of the show as French champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) extended their lead at the top of the Ligue 1 table.

Di Maria scored a brace as PSG beat OGC Nice 4-1 away from home to open up a five-point gap at the top of the French Ligue 1 table.

The in-form winger gave PSG a 2-0 at the halftime interval before Ignatius Ganago pulled one back for the home side in the second half.

Nice suffered double setback after both Wylan Cyprien and Christophe Herelle were sent off thus reducing the hosts to nine men.

Wylan Cyprien was sent off for two yellow cards before the aforementioned Herelle got his marching orders via a straight red card.

PSG capitalized on the numerical advantage with two late goals from Kylian Mbappe and Mauro Icardi.

Di Maria has been in very good form for PSG this season after netting seven goals in all competitions including a return of four goals in ten league games.

The Argentine star signed for PSG in the summer of 2015 in a 44 million pounds deal from Manchester United.

He spent just one season at Manchester United while Dutch tactician Louis Van Gaal was the manager.
