Meunier blasts ´disgraceful´ PSG fans after Neymar boos

It was not a ideal night for Neymar however as another penalty disagreement with Edison Cavani led to the home fans booing him as he stepped up to take the penalty which completed the goal scoring of the game.

Neymar also reached a milestone against Dijon as his first assist made him the first player in any of Europe's top five leagues to provide ten assists this campaign.

"I think Neymar took the penalty because it was also a good day for him", PSG boss Unai Emery said in his post match comments.

PSG were comfortably ahead by the time Neymar got rolling, with Angel Di Maria's double and an Edinson Cavani strike pushing the league leaders into a 3-0 lead after 21 minutes.

"We're happy with it".

The Brazilian scored four times in PSG's massive Ligue 1 victory over Dijon, while Cavani drew level with Zlatan Ibrahimovic's 156-goal record tally for the club with his solitary strike. "But there will be lots more chances for Cavani to score more goals". French keeper Baptiste Reynet stuck to his spot like he was super glued to the pitch during the Neymar effort, watching the ball coast into the right corner.

Neymar netted a hat-trick, scoring PSG's fourth, fifth and sixth goals on 42nd, 57th and 73rd minutes respectively.

Neymar then pitched in with three goals on the spin, the third of which bringing back memories of his formative years at Santos, where he used to skin entire apathetic defences for fun...

Alphonse Areola made a straight-forward save to his left to deny Mehdi Abeid before Neymar extended PSG's advantage in style despite seemingly being troubled by a groin problem. "We were nearly flawless today", PSG defender Thomas Meunier told Canal+.

PSG have 56 points and lead second-placed Olympique Lyonnais, who won 2-0 at En Avan Guingamp earlier, by 11 points.
