PSG had looked to be held in the first 45 minutes, despite being lively enough but never really threatening the Reims goal. That is, until Verratti found a breakthrough on the verge of HT.
The Italian international's thundering half-volley left goalkeeper Predrag Rajkovi stranded as he cut across a bouncing ball on the edge of the area.
During the first half, Reims had played their part, coming close on several times.
Hugo Ekitike threatened the hosts' goal twice, once finding the target and the other blazing high over the crossbar.
Azor Matusiwa forced Keylor Navas into a stinging save, and Hugo Ekitike threatened the hosts' goal twice, once finding the target and once blazing high over the crossbar.

Sergio Ramos was the first to react to a loose ball in the penalty area, and he was able to poke home at the second attempt.
The Spanish defender, who scored 72 goals for Real Madrid, was visibly pleased to have scored his first goal for his new club.

Danilo Pereira scored a beautiful side-footed effort past goalie Rajkovi late in the game to make it four.
Mauro Icardi's late header was rejected by a horrible handball, but it didn't matter as PSG maintained their 11-point advantage at the top of Ligue 1.
Sergio Ramos in 4 games scored as many Ligue 1 goals as Lionel Messi in 12 Games.
