Published:

PARIS (AP) -- Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally ended his 12-game scoring drought as Saint-Etienne beat Bastia 3-0 to move up to the sixth place in the French league on Sunday.

The 23-year-old Aubameyang had not scored since Nov. 10 and he wrapped up the victory when he scored the second goal after Brazilian striker Brandao had given Saint-Etienne an early lead. Midfielder Joshua Guilavogui added a third late on for the home side.

Later, Paris Saint-Germain looked to move back to the top of the league with a home win against Lille, and Nice hosted Bordeaux in Sunday's other match.
