Cavani’s brace gives PSG the Group A winner.
Thirty-four years ago, Paris Saint-Germain made their European debut in Bulgaria. They were beaten 1-0 by Lokomotiv Sofia at the Vasil Levski stadium. Returning to this very same ground last evening, the Parisian side locked horns with another Bulgarian team, Ludogorets.
Natanael opened the scoring with a STUNNER of a free kick in the 16th minute leaving PSG to climb the hill. However, Matuidi leveled things up in the 41st minute just before half-time. In the 55th minute, Cavani made it 2-1 with a header from a Di Maria’s free kick assist. El Matador put the icing on the cake five minutes later when he bagged a brace after Alphonse Areola saved a penalty.
I see room for improvement for PSG. With Emery, things have gone just a little bit backwards, but he’ll get there.
