Kylian Mbappe became PSG’s all-time Ligue 1 top goalscorer when he rolled in the club’s first of the night to put the hosts ahead with an instinctive strike.
Vitinha scored from long-range to double PSG’s advantage, before Lionel Messi finished off a wonderful move to stretch PSG’s lead to three before the break.
Early in the second half, Lens got a goal back when Przemyslaw Frankowski converted from the spot after a handball in the box from Fabian Ruiz.
The win means PSG extend their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to nine points.
Lens started the match on top and had an early chance beaten away by Gianluigi Donnarumma, before referee Willy Delajod was quick to issue his first card of the game – a red one.
Mbappe just helped on a pass from Vitinha,which he received in the box with his back to goal, swivelled excellently and guided the ball into the bottom far corner for his first goal in three games.
Lens almost replied instantly when Ikoma Openda found Frankowski in the box, but the winger steered his effort wide.
It would go down as a wasted chance, and a chance rued as PSG quickly doubled their advantage.
Vitinha, involved again, took on a long-range effort and neatly found the bottom right corner with a low shot from 30 yards out.
PSG were in cruise control at this point and Messi and Mbappe were at their scintillating best to help PSG stretch their lead to three goals, and earn Messi his 30th goal in all competitions this season.
Messi drove towards a congested Lens penalty area and found Mbappe, who quickly returned the ball to Messi with a sensational back-heel flick, before Messi coolly slotted beyond Brice Samba.
