First, let me just commend Laurent Blanc on what a fine job he is doing with the French outfit. Just look at their achievement in the Ligue and in the CL.
Last evening, PSG won 3-1 against Ajax to stay on top of Group F thanks to a brace by Cavani and a wicked goal from his strike partner, Zlatan. The strike duo were at their classy lethal best.
The best chance for PSG came in the 25′ for Lavezzi, who only managed to hit the ball straight at Cillessen but PSG went ahead in the 33′ through Cavani who slotted home for his 6th goal in 7 games. Ajax leveled things up in the 67′ with a powerful header through Klaassen all thanks to Kishna’s cross evading Luiz. Zlatan was not to be left out. He put PSG ahead in the 78′ with an acrobatic wonder. Pastore can take credit for the assist after Zlatan latched onto the pass to struck home a sweet volley. Clinical!
Niki Zimling gifted PSG with a 3rd allowing Cavani to to take advantage of the situation. El Matador rounded the goalie and slotted home his brace, his 7th goal in his last 7 games for the French outfit. I am very happy to see Cavani performing well. Keep it up, El Matador!
