PSG came back to the Parc des Princes to face their home demons after losing their last two games at home and defeated second-place Lens 3-1 to put a virtual ending to the Ligue 1 race as Paris Saint-Germain now sit pretty atop the standings with a nine-point advantage.

Paris Saint-Germain finally won a home game after losing their prior two on their own turf. The victory couldn't have come at a better time, truth be told, considering it left Lens nine points behind PSG in the standings with only seven games left to play.

Galtier decided to use his favorite formation going with a 3-5-2 from the get-go. That changed quickly, though, aided by an early red card shown to Lens before the 20th minute of play, making Galtier change to a better 4-3-3 formation that helped PSG demolish Lens by scoring three goals in a span of just 10 minutes in the first half.

In a week in which everything but football grabbed all of the attention in the French capital, Paris capped it off with a win that have them just a few games away from clinching a reacord-breaking title to put them ahead of Saint-Etienne when PSG lift their 11th Ligue 1, perhaps even before mid-May.

Here are three of the most important talking points after PSG won their first league game at home since losing two consecutive matches at the Parc des Princes before beating Nice (2-0) on the road a week ago as the Parisian now are leading the league race by eight points over Marseille.
