Highlights: PSG 9-0 Guingamp

By on 19th January 2019

Paris Saint-Germain produced a record-breaking victory in thrashing Guingamp 9-0 at the Parc des Princes on Saturday.

Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe each helped themselves to hat-tricks as the Ligue 1 leaders set a new record for the heaviest victory in the division. The Parisians previously held it themselves, with an 8-0 thrashing of Dijon last year.

Brazilian superstar Neymar also scored twice, while Thomas Meunier struck late on against the league’s bottom side.

It was only 10 days earlier that Guingamp had stunned Paris Saint-Germain by beating them 2-1 in Paris to reach the semi-finals of the French Cup.

A similar shock was never on the cards this weekend as the home side took control from the outset. Neymar opened the scoring in the 11th minute before turning provider for Mbappe 10 minutes before half-time. Mbappe then netted on the stroke of half-time when he pounced on Felix Eboa Eboa’s blocked clearance to make it 3-0.

PSG did not score again until the hour mark when Cavani turned home Juan Bernat’s cross, before the Uruguayan headed in Angel Di Maria’s cross to make it 5-0 midway through the second half.

Neymar slid a finish under goalkeeper Marc-Aurele Caillard to join Mbappe and Cavani on two goals – then the latter became the first to complete his treble by bundling the ball in on 80 minutes.

Mbappe’s third came shortly after courtesy of a close-range finish, and Guingamp’s misery was complete when Meunier made it nine in the 83rd minute.
