Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his sixth goal in six games as Paris St Germain crushed Dynamo Kiev 4-1 in their Champions League opener.
Eight years after their last appearance in the competition, the big-spending Parisians dominated from beginning to end to launch their campaign in emphatic fashion.
Ibrahimovic scored from the penalty spot in the 19th minute after Jeremy Menez had been fouled.
Defender Thiago Silva - making his PSG debut after his summer move from AC Milan - and fellow Brazilian Alex took advantage of terrible marking by the Ukrainians to put their team 3-0 ahead after little more than 30 minutes.
A cricket score looked possible at that stage but the hosts wilted in the second half and conceded a sloppy goal with three minutes left when Miguel Veloso's cross from the right sneaked inside the post.
PSG finished with a flourish though and midfielder Javier Pastore added the fourth in injury time.
