Neymar scores four goals in PSG's win vs. Dijon, gets booed

18 January 2018

The world's most expensive player Neymar plundered four goals as Paris Saint-Germain reasserted their dominance of Ligue 1 with a 8-0 thrashing of Dijon at the Parc des Princes.

Brazilian striker Neymar Jr. pulled off some ridiculous moves at Monday's practice session for Paris Saint-Germain.

Cavani headed PSG's third goal on the night which saw Angel Di Maria and Kylian Mbappe also find the back of the net.

Neymar struck a 31 minute hat-trick before the biggest talking point of the game arrived seven minutes from time.

He hadn't ever registered a hat trick for PSG prior to Wednesday's outing, and made a decision to take it a step further with a mesmerizing showing that included a goal from a set piece and another from a penalty kick. Neymar also had two assists in the victory.

Di Maria opened the scoring for PSG in the fourth minute and scored again in the 15th minute to make it 2-0.

Espanyol's academy graduate Oscar Melendo crashed in the only goal of the game in the 88th minute after Messi had his spot-kick turned away by former Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez earlier in the second half.

Plenty went against Silva's words and claimed he was upset by the boos.

Cavani's goal against Dijon means he has now equalled Zlatan Ibrahimovic as PSG's all-time leading scorer in all competitions on 156 goals.

Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez recently suggested that Neymar would have more chance of winning the Ballon d'Or if he was at the Bernabéu, words that have caused another rift with Cristiano Ronaldo, the holder of football's highest individual award and a five-time victor.

PSG fans chanted "Cavani, Cavani" as Neymar took the penalty, which seemed to upset the Brazil worldwide.
