Paris Saint-Germain's midfielder Blaise Matuidi (C) is congratuled by teammates after scoring a goal during a French L1 football match against Evian Thonon Gaillard on April 23, 2014 at the Parc des Princes stadium in ParisBlaise Matuidi struck in the 89th minute to give Paris Saint-Germain a 1-0 win against struggling Evian at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday and take the capital club to the brink of the title. It looked like PSG would have to settle for a point against their 10-man opponents until Lucas played in fellow substitute Matuidi and the France midfielder slotted the ball through the legs of goalkeeper Jesper Hansen at the near post. The result leaves the reigning champions 10 points clear of nearest challengers Monaco with only four games remaining and means they can clinch a second consecutive title with a win away to Sochaux on Sunday, or 24 hours earlier if Monaco lose at relegated Ajaccio. However, the nature of the performance left coach Laurent Blanc far from satisfied at full time.
