PARIS - Defending champion Paris Saint-Germain earned its first win of the season in the French league by defeating Bastia 2-0 on Saturday with goals from Lucas Moura and Edinson Cavani.
Lucas met a cross from Gregory Van der Wiel to volley into the bottom corner from a tight angle in the 26th minute. Cavani doubled the lead by controlling a long ball from Marco Verratti to flick home in the 57th.
