Edison Cavani breaks record as PSG thrusts Montpellier

Edison Cavani scored his 157th goal for PSG to finally break Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s record of 156 goals and became the champion elect’s all-time top scorer.

PSG walked over Montpellier with four goals as they registered their 19th win of the season with goals coming from Edison Cavani 11’, Neymar 40’, 82’, and Angel Dimaria 70’.

Neymar Jr grabbed a brace

The Uruguay International desired to write history in the previous fixture against Dijon before the 2-1 defeat to Lyon but was denied by Neymar who assumed responsibility of taking the penalty, a thing that went wrong with fans.

Angel Dimaria made it three as the former Barcelona player scored the fourth eight minutes to full time.
