Unai Emery’s side look a formidable prospect this season, despite finishing behind eventual champions Monaco in the last campaign.
Undoubtedly the signings of both Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have helped PSG’s profile, however, the form of Uruguay international Cavani has been equally impressive.

And with Neymar missing through suspension tonight, the pressure was firmly on Cavani’s shoulder, or should we say forehead…
After all his impressive run has continued tonight, after he connected with Angel Di Maria’s cross to score this diving header against Nice after just three minutes:
World-class movement yet again Edinson Cavani ?
