Neymar stars on winning PSG debut at Guingamp

Neymar stars on winning PSG debut at Guingamp

PSG are second in the league on six points, behind Lyon on goals scored with Monaco, who thrashed Dijon 4-1 away earlier on Sunday, in third place also on six points.

Neymar lived up to expectations as he showed his class on his Ligue 1 debut on Sunday, scoring one and setting up another goal in Paris St Germain's 3-0 win at En Avant Guingamp.

The Brazilian set up Edinson Cavani to make it 2-0, before the Uruguay global fed Neymar for his first goal in PSG colours.

"We are trying to improve all the time and we'll get to know each other better yet, but it is easy to play with players of such quality".




Neymar will line up in a front three alongside Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria, with Javier Pastore dropped to the bench after starting against Amiens.

Inevitably all eyes were on the Brazil star, whose first contribution was to loft an ambitious pass from deep towards the run of Di Maria which proved just too heavy.

There were no goals in the first half at the Stade municipal de Roudourou, but the visitors turned on the style after the break. Neymar then span a ball in for Marquinhos whose header came back off the post (35'). And it was roles reversed in the 82nd-minute when the Uruguayan forward squared a pass across to Neymar to give the debutant the goal he'd been searching for.

The first notice of Neymar's threat was served five minutes later as he jinked inside on his right foot before blasting over from 20 yards, and he nearly created the opener as his teasing cross was thumped against the angle of post and crossbar by an unmarked Marquinhos.
