Neymar hits four, Cavani matches Ibra record as PSG crush Dijon
Neymar netted four goals and Edinson Cavani became Paris St Germain's joint top scorer ever as the runaway Ligue 1 leader demolished visitor Dijon 8-0 Wednesday. Brazilian forward Neymar, just back from injury, took his season's tally to 15 goals and the rout was completed by Angel di Maria's double and goals by Cavani and substitute Kylian Mbappe. Cavani bagged his 156th goal in all competitions for PSG, matching the club record of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who played for the club from 2012-16. PSG have 56 points from 21 games and lead second-placed Olympique Lyonnais, who won 2-0 at En Avant Guingamp earlier Wednesday, by 11 points. Di Maria put the host ahead on four minutes when he found the top corner from the edge of the box after collecting Giovani lo Celso's pass. The Argentine made it 2-0 11 minutes later from point-blank range with Dijon in disarray. It got worse for the visitor, who fell 3-0 in the 21st as Cavani headed home from Di Maria's cross. Three minutes before the break, Neymar curled a superb free kick past Baptiste Reynet as PSG continued to pile the pressure. Neymar doubled his tally 12 minutes into the second half, beating Reynet from close range. The Brazilian was at hit again in the 73rd, slaloming past six Dijon players before finding the back of the net with a powerful shot from just inside the box. Four minutes later, Mbappe was set up by Neymar and the French international scored PSG's seventh goal with a left-foot shot and Neymar rubbed salt in the visitor's wounds when he converted an 83rd-minute penalty. The former Barcelona player, who also set up two goals, was booed when he took the penalty as Cavani would have broken the club scoring record had he taken and converted it. Earlier, Nabil Fekir and Houssem Aouar helped Lyon move above Olympique de Marseille and Monaco into second place. They lead Marseille, who beat RC Strasbourg 2-0 Tuesday, by one point and Monaco, who were held to a 2-2 draw with Nice, by two.
