Commentary

PSG's procession to the Ligue 1 title continues, then, as does Lille's comedown from it. That's all for now. Goodbye!
PSG's victory extends their lead at the top of Ligue 1 back to 13 points after Marseille's win earlier this weekend. The Parisians are unstoppable this season. Lille stay 11th. They're only six points from fourth and a Europa League place, but they've fallen so far from last season.
PSG make it 14 games unbeaten in Ligue 1 by thrashing Lille! Lille were the architects of their own downfall in the first half, handing PSG three easy goals. The hosts were tighter in the second half, but PSG still scored twice to wrap the three points up. Danilo Pereira will get the headlines for his two goals.
90' + 2' FULL-TIME: LILLE 1-5 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN
90' + 1' PSG are winding down the clock by keeping possession. Lille have been up for the game but well beaten.
90' Lille press PSG in their defensive third. Hakimi's unfairly nudged off the ball and gets a free-kick. There'll be two more minutes of this.
88' Lille should definitely have scored more than once in this game. Gomes is free in the box to test Donnarumma from a cutback. Instead the Englishman fires wide.
E. Zhegrova
J. Bamba
85' Lille also make a change. Bamba heads off. Zhegrova is his replacement.
X. Simons
L. Paredes
85' PSG make a change. Paredes goes off. The Dutch U21 midfielder Simons comes on.
85' Lille haven't downed tools, to their credit. Bamba scampers free down the right but loses his composure as he enters the box, blazing way over. Marquinhos shows his displeasure at giving the chance away.
84' Messi will of course take this free-kick. The Argentine tries to find the top right corner but it's an easy height for Grbic to catch.
D. Bradarić
Yellow Card
83' Bradaric gets booked for his cynical challenge on Mbappe.
81' Bradaric puts an end to PSG's latest attack, catching up to Mbappe to bring him down just outside the box.
79' There are chances at both ends. Donnarumma saves Gudmundsson's tame shot. Marquinhos races onto Nuno Mendes' cross but can't keep his volley down.
T. Kehrer
P. Kimpembe
78' PSG decide to play it safe and replace Kimpembe. The centre-back did take a whack from Celik. Kehrer replaces him.
77' After some treatment Kimpembe looks fine. PSG are preparing changes anyway.
Z. Çelik
Yellow Card
75' Celik's reckless attempt to score earns him a yellow card.
74' Lille are still sporadically threatening PSG's goal. Bamba jinks into the box from the right and flashes the ball across goal. It's kept alive by Gudmundsson and Celik goes for an overhead kick inside the six-yard box, catching Kimpembe in the face. PSG get a free-kick.
72' Verratti has a pop at goal that's blocked. PSG are winding things down a little. Everyone knows this game is over as a contest.
A. Gomes
H. Ben Arfa
70' Ben Arfa heads off, having at least played a key role in Lille's goal. The English midfielder Gomes comes on.
D. Bradarić
T. Weah
70' Lille decide to make changes. Bradaric is on for Weah first.
68' That's Mbappe's 11th goal in Ligue 1 this season. The World Cup winner is now the third top goalscorer behind David and Wissam Ben Yedder in the league this season.
M. Verratti
Assist
67' Verratti carried PSG forward well there and spotted that Mbappe was in a better position. Mbappe had a think about it and did the rest. PSG are well and truly cruising now.
K. Mbappé
Goal
67' GOAL! LILLE 1-5 PSG! PSG are just too good for Lille. Mbappe receives a pass from Verratti outside the box, weighs up his options, and bends an unstoppable shot into the far top corner.
66' Onana pulls his opponent's shirt and gives another foul away. Lille are struggling to handle PSG at this stage.
64' Andre's frustrated to give a free-kick away high up the pitch. PSG waste no time in taking it.
62' PSG get several players lined up on the edge of Lille's box with the hosts pinned in. Paredes goes for goal. His effort whizzes over the crossbar.
61' Weah bursts past his man to send a high cross into the box. Ben Arfa can do nothing with it though. PSG recover to clear.
59' Bamba's ball in from the left is cut out calmly. The winger gets another opportunity to cut inside and this time forces Donnarumma into making a routine save at the near post.
57' Lille are still trying to cause PSG problems. PSG aren't giving very much away currently though, which is the opposite of what the hosts have been doing.
55' PSG almost make it 1-5! Hakimi's cutback is met by Mbappe and stopped by Grbic. Hakimi attempts another low cross, but Lille's defenders are in the right place to block this time.
53' David thinks he can make the most of a cross into PSG's box, but Donnarumma has other ideas.
L. Paredes
Assist
51' Paredes' assist wasn't the hardest in the world, but it still counts. Danilo Pereira's having the game of his dreams. Everything is falling nicely for the Portuguese midfielder.
Danilo Pereira
Goal
51' GOAL! LILLE 1-4 PSG! PSG are running rampant now. Grbic saves Messi's shot from point-blank range after good work by Draxler down the right. Paredes nudges the ball back to Danilo Pereira who fires home from the edge of the box to notch his second goal of the game.
50' Chance for PSG! Messi slips Mbappe through on goal. The Frenchman edges the ball wide before lashing into the side netting from a tight angle.
49' PSG take the corner short before working it back to Messi. The Argentine sends a left-footed cross in and Mbappe is off-target from the rebound.
48' Hakimi plays a promising one-two to enter the box. The Moroccan's cross is blocked. PSG get a corner.
46' Lille get this game going again. Their boss Jocelyn Gourvennec will want to see his team give PSG a harder time in the second half.
Lille will be disappointed at having given PSG such an easy lead after putting up a decent fight for most of the first half. PSG are unbeaten in their last 18 Ligue 1 matches when leading at half-time. There's little indication this game will end any differently.
PSG lead by two goals at the break thanks to three defensive errors from Lille. Grbic's howler gave PSG the early advantage before Botman cancelled it out. Kimpembe and Messi have now put PSG in a comfortable position. More to come!
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: LILLE 1-3 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN
L. Paredes
Yellow Card
45' + 1' Paredes picks up a yellow card for a poor challenge he committed a few seconds ago.
45' + 1' Messi will take PSG's free-kick as we enter two minutes of added time. The little magician goes for goal and cracks his effort against the crossbar!
J. Draxler
Á. Di María
45' PSG bring on Draxler to replace Di Maria. The Argentine receives some magic spray to his foot.
43' Onana finds himself unable to connect with an overhit pass into PSG's box. PSG soon get a free-kick in a central position, but it looks like Di Maria can't continue. He walks off the pitch to receive treatment.
42' Ben Arfa tries to dance his way into the penalty area but PSG aren't in the mood to tango. The Parisians have tightened up as this first half has gone on.
41' Di Maria gets back to his feet. Meanwhile, Pochettino issues some tactical instructions to Verratti.
40' Di Maria is down holding his leg near Lille's corner flag after taking an accidental kick from Gudmundsson. The referee initially ignores him before deciding to check that he's OK.
L. Messi
Goal
38' GOAL! LILLE 1-3 PSG! This is vintage Messi. The Argentine skips over a last-ditch Lille tackle and delicately dinks the ball over the onrushing Grbic. PSG suddenly have a commanding lead.
37' Mbappe fires well over the crossbar from inside the box. PSG are still creating plenty of chances.
35' Chance for Lille! Weah finds himself one-on-one with Donnarumma and skips past the PSG keeper. He takes too long to shoot, though, allowing a defender to get back and block the near post. Play's pulled back as Donnarumma took a whack to the head while diving to block.
34' Grbic claims a cross to roars from the home fans. They haven't lost the faith in their goalkeeper, despite his earlier error.
L. Messi
Assist
32' Messi's delivery there was excellent as always, and left Grbic flapping at thin air. Kimpembe spotted the space in front of him and powered into it. There was no doubt he would miss the target.
P. Kimpembe
Goal
32' GOAL! LILLE 1-2 PSG! This goal is as simple as they come. Messi swings in a delightful corner. It loops over Grbic to Kimpembe who arrives at the back post to prod it in.
31' PSG find Hakimi to the right of the box. The Moroccan aims for the bottom left corner and isn't too far from finding it. PSG get a corner shortly after.
30' PSG look to regain the lead straight away as Messi's throughball is cut out. Lille work the ball upfield but have a player down. PSG are eventually awarded a free-kick.
H. Ben Arfa
Assist
28' That was a beautiful assist by Ben Arfa, who made Di Maria look foolish there. Lille undoubtedly deserve to be drawing this game.
S. Botman
Goal
28' GOAL! LILLE 1-1 PSG! Lille level things up through Botman! Ben Arfa beats Di Maria down the goalline and dinks the ball back to the Dutchman in the centre of the box. The centre-back scissor kicks it straight at Donnarumma, who gets a hand to it but is unable to keep it out of the net!
27' Bamba's cross from the left is blocked by Hakimi. Lille get a corner. It comes back out to Ben Arfa...
25' Nuno Mendes and Weah tangle legs down Lille's right. It's a clumsy challenge by the PSG left-back, but nothing more than a foul.
24' Nuno Mendes is caught wrong-footed, allowing Lille to steal a throw-in. PSG are leading despite not having been entirely convincing so far.
23' Mbappe receives Marquinhos' pass on the turn and is tripped by Fonte. The referee gives the veteran centre-back a talking to.
22' Donnarumma catches this latest corner, along with a high boot from Onana. The referee gets involved and gives PSG a free-kick.
21' Lille sniff a counter-attack. Ben arfa searches for Weah to his right. The pass catches Marquinhos' heel and is flicked out for a corner. Bamba sends it in and Botman's bullet header goes over the crossbar via Donnarumma's fingertips. Lille get another corner.
20' Ben Arfa attempts to find David in Lille's half. Lille's strike pairing aren't quite in sync yet, though. Di Maria's ambitious curler from the right whizzes over the crossbar.
19' Donnarumma drops to the ground to prevent Weah's cross from reaching a teammate. PSG hurriedly clear.
18' Chance for PSG! Messi lines up a strike just outside the D and curls his strike just wide of the left-hand post.
17' Andre's attempt to free Weah down the right doesn't work out as the pass rolls harmlessly out of play.
16' David finds himself with the ball wide left and dribbles inside, waiting for support. It comes but too late, and PSG can counter! Di Maria leaves the ball for Mbappe, whose cross is cleared.
14' The LOSC fans are in fine voice despite their team being behind early on. Onana carries the ball away from Lille's box. PSG are well-structured though and aren't letting the hosts bypass them easily.
12' Onana tries his luck on the volley from the edge of the box. It dips towards the bottom left corner, but it's close enough for Donnarumma to save and snaffle up at the second attempt.
Danilo Pereira
Goal
10' GOAL! LILLE 0-1 PSG! PSG take the lead thanks to an absolute gift from Grbic. The Lille keeper fumbles a basic cross and Danilo Pereira stabs in from close range. That is not the start Lille wanted.
9' Onana hands PSG a free-kick in the centre of the pitch. Lille are holding their own so far.
7' Lille enjoy their first decent chance of the game. Ben Arfa receives Weah's low cross from the right and blasts an effort against a defender. Onana heads off-target from the resulting corner.
5' Lille are letting PSG pop the ball around at the back under very little pressure. Andre eventually nips in and wins possession for the hosts.
4' The game's started at a swift pace. Messi works the ball wide left as Nuno Mendes arrives in the box. The PSG left-back drags his shot wide of the far bottom corner.
3' Mbappe powers down the left and centres the ball for Messi. Lille manage to get there first. The hosts counter down their left through Bamba, but the winger's cross is cut out.
2' PSG get settled on the ball quickly. Mbappe races after a direct ball over the top. Grbic is off his line quickly to gather it.
1' The visitors PSG get this game underway!
The players are out on the pitch at a lively Stade Pierre Mauroy. Lille are playing in their red and black home kit. PSG are wearing their all-white away strip.
Lille are unbeaten in their last nine Ligue 1 home games and have lost just one of their last three league meetings with PSG, altough that was in the reverse fixture this season. PSG have drawn their last three away games. Is a fourth stalemate about to follow?
There are four changes to Lille from their 2-0 defeat to Brest a few weeks ago. Ben Arfa partners David up front. PSG make five changes from their loss to Nice. Mbappe and Di Maria return to join Messi in a fearsome front three.
SUBS: Juan Bernat, C. Dagba, E. Ebimbe, D. Draxler, T. Kehrer, L. Kurzawa, E. Michut, K. Navas, X. Simons.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN (4-3-3): G. Donnarumma; A. Hakimi, Marquinhos, P. Kimpembe, Nuno Mendes; L. Paredes, Danilo Pereira, M. Verratti; A. Di Maria, L. Messi, K. Mbappe.
SUBS: A. Gomes, D. Bradaric, Tiago Djalo, Leo Jardim, J. Pied, U. Raghouber, E. Zhegrova, Xeka.
LILLE (4-4-2): I. Grbić; Z. Çelik, Jose Fonte, S. Botman, G. Gudmundsson; T. Weah, B. Andre, A. Onana, J. Bamba; J. David, H. Ben Arfa.
PSG arrive at Stade Pierre Mauroy 10 points clear at the top of the table, with the chance of extending their unbeaten run in Ligue 1 to 14 matches. Mauricio Pochettino's men will be keen to make amends after getting knocked out of the Coupe de France on penalties by Nice midweek. Lille had better watch out.
Lille's season is not progressing as planned. Starting this game in the bottom half of Ligue 1 after losing 2-0 to Brest last time out, the defending champions are facing a fight just to finish in the European positions. Fortunately for them, they're just a few points away, but any chance of them troubling PSG as they did last season is slim.
