Alves scores late winner as league leader PSG beats Nice 2-1

PARIS (AP) Dani Alves took Paris Saint-Germain a step closer to the French title on Sunday, scoring his first league goal of the season with a late header as PSG won 2-1 at Nice.

The 34-year-old Brazil defender met midfielder Adrien Rabiot's astute curling pass over the defense and sent a powerful header into the bottom right corner in the 82nd minute.

PSG is 17 points clear of defending champion Monaco and almost certain to win its fifth title in six seasons. PSG has seven games left and Monaco has eight.
