Edinson Cavani breaks all-time Paris Saint-Germain scoring record

Edinson Cavani breaks all-time Paris Saint-Germain scoring record

Di Maria then released Cavani down the right with a clever reverse pass, and Cavani's quick cross from the right was tapped in by Neymar.

Emery wants his team to follow up that success by putting another three points on the board in the league but he is anticipating a tough game against the side with the best defensive record in the division.

So far, the 25-year-old's time in Paris has been a huge success on the pitch.

Edinson Cavani scored a club record 157th goal for Paris Saint-Germain and Neymar Jr netted twice as the Ligue 1 Conforama leaders recorded a routine 4-0 win over Montpellier Hérault SC at the Parc des Princes.

Despite his fantastic form, Neymar hasn't had it all easy at PSG. Since returning to action in 2018, the Uruguay international has looked rusty and apprehensive as he stands on the brink of an all-time record tally of 157 goals for the club.

"Of course it bothered me, but we are here to be whistled and applauded".

"I was hoping that he would take his chance here, his chance to join a closed circle of players with that world-class reputation", the Belgium international said.

Neymar is back in full training after missing two matches, Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery said yesterday before heaping praise on the Brazilian.

And now, once again, the Spanish and European champions are being heavily linked with Neymar.

"I think it's just a moment, sometimes you can go through a bad time, but Real Madrid is Real Madrid", said Robinho. "Neymar is good there, with his friends and family - I cannot imagine him anywhere other than Paris".

"Writing my name into history with this club, this team and these supporters, it is magnificent", El Matador told Canal+.

Nice missed the opportunity to move six points clear of Montpellier as they slipped to a surprise 2-1 defeat away to bottom side Metz.

With five minutes remaining in the half, PSG were awarded spot-kick, which Neymar duly converted to make it 2-0.

Post-match, was it a magnum of champagne, a commemorative shirt or a big bonus cheque that was presented to Cavani?

Adrien Rabiot opened the scoring for PSG in the 21st minute followed smartly by Lucas Deaux's own goal, with Javier Pastore and Marquinhos completing the round of 32 win after the break.

The Brazilian has scored 24 goals in all competitions since joining the Parisians. Les Parisiens' iconic No. 10 looked invested in his teammates and his relationship with his fellow South American looks like it might have turned a significant corner. 'He's fine, we'll see if he can return on Saturday, but I hope he'll be ready at the latest for Lille (on February 3).
