PARIS (AP) Zlatan Ibrahimovic returned to spearhead Paris Saint-Germain's attack, but it was Edinson Cavani who set the tone with his fourth goal in four games as PSG won 2-0 at Nantes to move three points clear of Lyon in the French title race on Sunday.

Ibrahimovic had missed the three previous games for insulting officials after a league match against Bordeaux at the end of March, giving Cavani the chance to play in his favored center forward role.

Despite being pushed out wide on the right because of Ibrahimovic's return, Cavani took only three minutes to make his mark with an opportunist shot that went in off the post.
