Neymar scores goal for PSG in opening game

Brazilian superstar Neymar scored on his Paris Saint-Germain debut as the Parisians defeated Guingamp 3-0 in a Ligue 1 clash on Sunday.

Cavani earlier doubled PSG's lead after Jordan Ikoko's comical own goal, guiding his pass beyond the Guingamp goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson.

The record attendance at the tiny Roudourou stadium was broken as 18,378 fans attended the much-anticipated debut of the Brazil forward. Neymar then span a ball in for Marquinhos whose header came back off the post (35').

The Brazilian was more decisive on the next goal as he set up Cavani, the Uruguayan scoring with a low shot after he collected his new team mate's long pass in the 62nd minute. Neymar teed up Angel Di Maria for a similar chance soon after, but the Argentina winger was stopped by Johnsson from point-blank range (78').

Earlier, champions Monaco kept up their own impressive start to the new campaign with a convincing 1-4 victory away to Dijon - former Chelsea and Manchester United striker Falcao nabbed an impressive hat-trick while man of the moment Kylian Mbappe had to settle for a seat on the bench.

Falcao scored twice before the break and once after to take his tally to four goals in two games while Jemerson netted another.

Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan was shown a straight red card in the 63rd minute for violent conduct having clashed with Strasbourg midfielder Benjamin Corgnet.
