Paris Saint Germain 3-0 Dijon

Edison Cavani
Edinson Cavani has scored with his past five shots in the league

Defending champions Paris St-Germain moved to the top of Ligue 1 with a convincing win over newly promoted Dijon at the Parc des Princes.

An Adam Lang own goal gave the hosts the lead as Maxwell's cross looped over goalkeeper Baptiste Reynet and deflected into the net through Lang.

Edinson Cavani scored from the penalty spot for his sixth league goal after Jordan Loties had fouled Adrien Rabiot.

Lucas added gloss to the scoreline by heading home Maxwell's fine cross.
