Ancelotti hails lead, laments performance

Paris Saint-Germain boss Carlo Ancelotti is pleased his side have opened a 10-point gap at the top of Ligue 1 on Saturday.

But that is all the excitement the former AC Milan manager could muster regarding PSG's 1-0 defeat of Troyes.

A Blaise Matuidi goal was the only piece of good news for the Paris-based club as a dissatisfied Ancelotti was forced to watch his men labour to quell a club fighting for survival at the bottom of the table.

However, he did acknowledge the club was at least one game closer to claiming the French title.

"It is a very important victory," Ancelotti was quoted as saying by the club's official website, psg.fr. "With six games remaining it is another step towards the title.

"Only the result counts for us because that performance cannot really provide satisfaction.

"Sometimes the most important thing is just to win. Especially after the Champions League game (against Barcelona), we had very little time for physical recovery.

"It was therefore vital to take three points for the rest of the season."

Troyes manager Jean-Marc Furlan said his side's inability to put PSG under early pressure was the catalyst to their defeat.

"I'm disappointed for my players," he said. "I regret that we didn't score in the first half."
