Cavani outshines Neymar as PSG win again

Cavani outshines Neymar as PSG win again

Paris: Neymar for once played a more restricted role as Edinson Cavani scored twice and Thiago Motta once in Paris Saint-Germain’s comfortable 3-0 home win over Saint-Etienne in Ligue 1 on Friday.

The world’s most expensive player -- scorer of three goals in his first two games since his 222 million-euro ($261 million) move from Barcelona -- still had a considerable influence, with his pass preceding the foul on Cavani that led to a first-half penalty scored by the Uruguayan.

And it was following a Neymar free-kick that Motta netted a rare goal after half-time to make it two before Cavani completed the win at the death as PSG maintained their perfect start to the French season with four wins from four outings.

Saint-Etienne had travelled to the Parc des Princes with a perfect record and without having conceded a goal in their opening three games, but while they were well organised defensively they lacked quality at the other end.
