TITLE WILL BE SO NICE.

Byline: BILL MILLS

BRAZILIAN midfielder Lucas says Paris St Germain will be ready to put the disappointment of their Coupe de France penalty shoot-out defeat at Evian behind them when they meet Nice tonight.

A simple win will put them closer to the Ligue 1 title.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti branded the spot-kick loss at Parc des Sports - where midfielder Thiago Motta had been sent off during extra-time, before Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva both missed from 12 yards - as a "disaster" after witnessing chances of the domestic double disappear.

Nevertheless, PSG - knocked out at the quarterfinals of the Champions League by Barcelona - remain in the driving seat some nine-points clear of Joey Barton's Marseilles.
