Nene brace deals Dijon defeat
Two goals from Nene saw Paris Saint-Germain past Dijon this afternoon and open up a three-point lead at the top of Ligue 1.
The Brazilian winger scored at the end of each half to secure Antoine Kombouare's men their fifth league win of the season at the Parc des Princes.
The hosts made a shaky start, though, and were given a sixth-minute scare when midfielder Jeremy Menez gave the ball away to Thomas Guerbert, who then teed up Benjamin Corgnet for a fierce shot which goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu had to be at full stretch to push away.
The pair combined again moments later with Guerbert once more releasing Corgnet, who curled a left-footed drive narrowly past the right post.
PSG had to wait 36 minutes for their first real chance of the match, with Menez hitting a shot from 20 yards which was palmed away by visiting goalkeeper Baptiste Reynet. But they found themselves in front two minutes before the interval when Menez flicked a cross into the area for Nene, who shook off his marker before striking low beyond the reach of Reynet.
Dijon came close to a deserved equaliser after 63 minutes through Corgnet, who latched onto a ball from Guerbert but fired a volley inches wide.
Reynet kept his side in the match six minutes later, making a superb reflex save to push away a close-range header from Kevin Gameiro following Ceara's free-kick.
However, PSG found the target once again with a minute remaining to seal the win. Clement Chantome opened Nene up for a 20-yard strike which the Brazilian smashed home with his left foot.
