Neymar scored four times as Paris Saint-Germain thumped Dijon 8-0 in Ligue 1 on Wednesday night.

Edinson Cavani then scored his 156th PSG goal, to draw level with Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the club's record goalscorer, before Neymar added his first of the night just before the break.
The Brazilian then struck again twice in the second half, and rounded off the scoring from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute after Kylian Mbappe had come off the bench to net.
