FILE - This April 17, 2014 file photo shows President Barack Obama speaking in the briefing room of the White House in Washington. During his upcoming trip to Asia, the president and the region's leaders will be keeping close watch on the Russian troops amassed on Ukraine's border and the status of a tenuous diplomatic deal aimed at keeping those forces at bay. In Asia, the U.S. response to the Ukraine crisis is being viewed through the prism of the region's own territorial disputes China. Japan and the Philippines _ two of the four countries Obama will visit _ are locked in tense disputes with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas and will be seeking reassurances that the U.S. would back them if the conflicts boiled over. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will confront a region that's warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China.

Edinson Cavani was the match-winner for Laurent Blanc's side, scoring a first-half brace, one of which came from a controversial penalty, and while Alexandre Lacazette pulled a goal back in the second half, PSG proved just too strong for a Lyon outfit who had beaten them in Ligue 1 just six days earlier.
