‘MCN’ all score as PSG thump Anderlecht

60

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani all scored as Paris St-Germain maintained their 100% record in this season’s Champions League with a 4-0 win at Anderlecht.

Mbappe opened the scoring on three minutes with a low shot before Cavani nodded in just before the break.

Neymar’s free-kick sneaked under the wall and in before substitute Angel di Maria’s late fourth capped off the win.

PSG signed their attacking trio on deals worth a potential £420m in total.

The French side, who fell in last year’s last 16 to an extraordinary Barcelona comeback, have scored 12 and conceded none in their first three games in Group B.

“We want to make an impression in this competition. We came here to try and win in style and are happy to go back to Paris with the three points,” Mbappe, 18, whose eighth goal in the competition made him the highest scoring teenager in Champions League history, told French television.

“We had a good game but are aware there are many games still ahead and we need to keep up the intensity. It’s a competition where we need to be at our maximum.”

In total PSG have won 12 of their 13 games this season, with only a goalless draw with Montpellier in September ruining their perfect record.
