Paris St Germain's resurgence continued apace on Saturday as the big-spending capital club swept aside Bastia 4-0 in a one-sided encounter at Stade Armand Cesari.
A brace by Zlatan Ibrahimovic allied to efforts by Jeremy Menez and Blaise Matuidi secured all the points for Carlo Ancelotti's men, as promoted Bastia slipped to their fourth league defeat on the trot.
Just six minutes were on the clock when PSG opened the floodgates, Nene's free-kick coming through to Ibrahimovic, who teed up Menez to apply the finish.
After opening the Ligue 1 season with three straight draws, PSG have now won three on the spin to muscle their way into the top three.
Bastia have failed to score in their last three defeats while conceding 10 goals, and the back-to-back wins that opened their campaign last month must seem a distant memory for coach Frederic Hantz.
