Neymar marks Paris Saint-Germain debut with a goal against Guingamp

Neymar marks Paris Saint-Germain debut with a goal against Guingamp”

Following his world-record €222 million move from Barcelona, Neymar will make his Paris Saint-Germain debut on Sunday after being named in the starting XI to face Guingamp.

Tthe most expensive footballer on the planet was not done there as he tapped home into an empty net with eight minutes remaining after good work from Cavani.

The record attendance at the tiny Roudourou stadium was broken as 18,378 fans attended the much-anticipated debut of the Brazil forward.

With Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Lucas Moura and Javier Pastore in their squad, PSG already have many options out wide in the final third, but Neymar brings an extra level of attacking verve. Neymar then span a ball in for Marquinhos whose header came back off the post (35').

The six-time French champions doubled their advantage in emphatic fashion, though, with Neymar providing a sublime through-ball for Cavani, who thumped home his 90th goal in just 135 French top-flight games (62').

Cavani stung the palms of Johnsson with a free-kick as PSG continued to dominate before Neymar had half-hearted appeals for a penalty waved away as he went down under minimal contact from Etienne Didot.

Not to be upstaged, Neymar had a more direct influence on PSG's second as his delightful throughball released Cavani to coolly beat Johnsson.

Despite Monaco fans' concerns that French prodigy Kylian Mbappe might be leaving, they know they can still trust Radamel Falcao after the Colombian striker hit a treble. Earlier, Lille were beaten 3-0 at promoted RC Strasbourg, conceding all three goals after striker Nicolas de Préville took over as goalkeeper following the sending off of Mike Maignan in the 63rd minute.
