That's it, full time. An easy, easy win for PSG. PSG weren't half bad, and they were pacey and direct in attack, but Marseile made it easy for them with reckless, thoughtless and clownish defending. PSG cut the deficit at the top to three points, and Marseille aren't sure of European football of any kind.
PSG knock it around the defence, and there's only going to be one minute of added time. That's a farce, but nobody will mind.
Marseille have about five minutes to find five goals. This is 14 games without a win for Marseille, against PSG.
Ben Arfa gets around the back of the defence, stands up a cross for Di Maria, but he - you'll be surprised - doesn't attack the ball, allowing the defender to head it back to Pele.
Cabella fouled for two late challenges, one for Matuidi, and one for Verrati.
Draxler gets himself a booking for preventing a Marseille break down the right wing.
- OffEdinson CavaniParis Saint-Germain
- OnHatem Ben ArfaParis Saint-Germain
Cavani trudges off, and Hull legend Ben Arfa is on.
Payet finally sparks into life and hits the post, with Trapp beaten, but PSG take the ball and try to break to add yet another.
- OffLucas MouraParis Saint-Germain
- OnÁngel Di MaríaParis Saint-Germain
Di Maria is on for Moura.
- GoalBlaise MatuidiParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! Marseille 1-5 PSG. Matudi scores - Verrati plays a one-two into the box, rolls it back for Matuidi, and he lifts a shot high into the net to finish Marseille off.
There's about 20 minutes left to provide a little bit of dignity to all this.
- GoalRod FanniOlympique de Marseille
GOAL! Marseille 1-4 PSG. Fanni scores - Payet's free kick from the left isn't properly cleared, it comes to Fanni inside the box, and he spins as he shoots, sending it past Trapp.
- OffFlorian ThauvinOlympique de Marseille
- OnGrégory SerticOlympique de Marseille
Thauvin off, Sertic on. Can he get five goals?
Lopez steams forward, plays it inside for Payet on the edge of the box, and he lazily punts it into a defender. Sad!
- GoalJulian DraxlerParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! Marseille 0-4 PSG. Draxler scores - Meunier strides down the right wing, looks up and picks out Draxler's run into the box to tap into an empty net.
Draxler rolls the ball forward to Matuidi, whose shot from close range is blocked by Pele for a corner. Kurzawa gets another free header, and sends it just over the bar.
Kurzawa gets a free header, powering it downwards, and Marseille leaps down to his right to save.
Moura wins a corner on the right wing. This game is over, but there's still almost half to come.
- OffJavier PastoreParis Saint-Germain
- OnJulian DraxlerParis Saint-Germain
Pastore swapped for Draxler.
Kurzawa goes close.
Sakai tries to get in behind the defence, but Kurzawa slides in to take him, and the ball, to concede a corner on the left. The corner is awful.
- OffClinton NjieOlympique de Marseille
- OnRémy CabellaOlympique de Marseille
Cabella on for Njie.
- GoalLucas MouraParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! Marseille 0-3 PSG. Moura scores - Moura runs onto a cross from the left with calm, low finish past Pele. The cross was a delicate pass from Pastore, with the outside of his boot.
Marseille have managed not to fall over all at the same time, so it's a mild improvement so far. But...

Bedimo on for Marseille, as the second half gets started.
- End of 1st Half
That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.
Payet's effort clips the wall, and the danger has passed for now.
Matuidi fouls Payet about 35 yards out, centrally placed. It's Payet's range, certainly.
Evra absolutely clatters Cavani, and mystifyingly gets away with it.
Rolando stabs away a Moura cross after he beat Evra for pace and sent the ball into the box.
- Yellow cardPatrice EvraOlympique de Marseille
Evra gets a yellow for blocking off Moura's run. He'd been taken out of the game, so had little choice.
Njie receives the ball in the box, and he prods a quick shot over the bar, just inside the box.
GOAL! No! Silva's header is saved, Cavani nods it down from an offside position against the post, it's back to Silva, and he finishes. The ref and linesman quickly rule it out.
Kurzawa finds Pastore on the left. His cross finds Cavani, who hooks it to Kurzawa who has moved into a dangerous position, and his shot is blocked. Corner on the right for PSG.
Verrati releases Cavani down the inside right, and he Rooneys a chip inside the box, over the bar.
Lopez attempts to cross from the right, but Matuidi is on hand to block, conceding a corner. PSG clear it, for now.
PSG are sitting back quite happily, and Moura launches an attack. He tries to play a one-two with Cavani, but it's a poor pass from Cavani.
- Yellow cardMarco VerrattiParis Saint-Germain
Pele claims the corner and rolls it out to Thauvin to start a counter. He passes forward, and Verrati sticks out a hand to stop the attack. Yellow card.
Kurzawa wins a corner off Sakai when he whips in an early cross which is blocked.
More of the same. Marseille are sitting back, and there's no need for PSG to actually risk anything now.
More PSG possession. Jonathan Pearce criticises Njie and Payet for not working hard enough. I see.
Moura is behind the defence after an error from Marseille's defenders. Moura tries to beat the 'keeper, but Pele sticks a leg out to block. It loops up, falls to Cavani, and his overhead kick flies over. Cavani was in a superb position for an open goal had Moura passed, and in furious.
PSG keep the ball in defence. They don't have to do anything anymore. Just keep calm and not make a mistake.
- GoalEdinson CavaniParis Saint-Germain
GOAL! Marseille 0-2 PSG. Cavani scores - Pastore clips a reverse pass into the box, behind the defence, and Cavani lifts it over the 'keeper with ease. His 35th for the club this season.
Payet drives in fro the left, towards the edge of the box, and his shot swerves just wide of the post.
Sakai's cross from the right is tipped away by Trapp. Payet had released his team-mate from his new, central position.

Marseille come on to the pitch with Jump by Van Halen playing. Let's do this ****!

Marseille, however, are in seventh. A win would take them to fifth, just off Lyon, but they are really in a holding pattern under this new owner, ready for a season of spending.
PSG are six points adrift of top spot. If they win tonight, their game in hand, they will be confident of pulling in Nice, but perhaps not Monaco, in the rest of the season.
Here's the report from today's earlier game, the League Cup final between Manchester United and Southampton.
PSG, if the line-up is correct, are going with a slightly odd formation. While they have a Champions League game to worry about, putting Blaise Matuidi on the left side of the attack is an unusual move. They have Thomas Meunier, a Belgian intellectual, at right-back, which is always nice to see.
The second greatest living Frenchman, Patrice Evra, captains Marseille tonight. He had been close to joining Manchester United and also Crystal Palace, but instead joined Marseille. It's some consolation - Marseille is the greatest city in the world, bar none.
