Neymar recorded another individual landmark as Paris Saint-Germain thumped desperate Dijon 8-0 in Ligue 1 on Wednesday. Neymar also had two assists in the victory.
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. That First Neymar goal was a delicious free-kick from 25 yards out, the miserable Dijon goalkeeper did not even move as the ball flew past him into the corner.
Four minutes later, Mbappe was set up by Neymar and the French worldwide scored PSG's seventh goal with a left-foot shot and Neymar rubbed salt in the visitors' wounds when he converted an 83rd-minute penalty. The Dijon defence were left as sour as mustard as the Argentinian grabbed his second before Edison Cavani and Neymar stretched the hosts lead to 4-0 at the break.
"I think Neymar took the penalty because it was also a good day for him", said PSG boss Unai Emery.
Just to rub salt into the wound, Neymar buried a penalty past Reynet in the 83rd minute.
The Uruguayan then netted his league-best 20th goal of the season by heading in a right-wing cross from Di Maria, pulling level with the record Ibrahimovic set across four seasons in the French capital. We're happy with it.
"So, as professionals, we must consider the goal as one for the team, more than for Neymar or Cavani on their own".
The Brazilian would not have to wait much longer for his second goal of the night, though, as he stroked home a rebound from inside the box to make it 5-0.
Neymar released Mbappe as the teenager scored within five minutes of replacing Di Maria, while the Brazilian rounded out a record home win for PSG from the spot after Cavani tumbled to the ground.
