Edinson Cavani has equalled Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s record of 156 goals for Paris Saint-Germain in all competitions.
The Uruguay international headed in an Angel Di Maria cross during the first half of PSG’s Ligue 1 tie against Dijon on Wednesday evening, giving Unai Emery’s side a 3-0 lead following an early Di Maria double. Neymar stole the show from that point on, scoring four goals as PSG rolled to an 8-0 triumph, with Kylian Mbappe also on the scoresheet.
Cavani’s strike moved him further into the lead in the goalscoring rankings in the French top flight, taking him to the 20-goal mark — four more than his closest rival for the accolade, Monaco’s Radamel Falcao.
Cavani and Ibrahimovic head a list of iconic figures in PSG’s all-time scoring charts, with former Portugal international Pauleta behind the pair with 109 goals.
The only other player to have hit the 100-mark for the capital club is Dominique Rocheteau, the former France winger who enjoyed a prolific seven-season spell with the club during the 1980s.
Ibrahimovic and Cavani are also tied for the most goals scored in a single match, the former hitting four goals against both Anderlecht in 2013 and Troyes in 2016, with the latter matching the feat during a Ligue 1 tie with Caen in September 2016.
