Neymar & Cavani Steer PSG To Victory

French Ligue 1

Result: Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 Troyes

Date: 29 November 2017

Venue: Parc de Princes

Second-half goals from Neymar and Edinson Cavani  saw Paris Saint-Germain claim a 2-0 win over Troyes in Ligue 1 on Wednesday evening.

The hosts could have opened the scoring after 11 minutes but Cavani blazed over the crossbar from close range.

Troyes had to wait until the 30th minute for their first chance as Samuel Grandsir weaved his way into the box before seeing his strike turned away by Kevin Trapp.

Five minutes later, the visitors had the ball in the back of the net but Saif-Eddine Khaoui's strike was flagged for offside.

PSG continued to see most of the ball and they were awarded a penalty in the 41st minute when Cavani was brought down. The striker took the spot-kick but it was saved by Mamadou Samassa.

Unai Emery's charges continued to dominate upon resumption in the second half, although they found it tough to carve out clear cut chances.

The deadlock was eventually broken on 73 minutes as Neymar picked up the ball 25-yards out from goal and rifled a low effort into the bottom corner, 1-0.

The Ligue 1 leaders sealed the win in stoppage time as Neymar turned provider to pick out Cavani, who rifled the ball past Trapp, 2-0.
