PSG faced scant resistance while sauntering to an 8-0 win over Dijon in Ligue 1 last night, leading to several thousand identical “cut the mustard” gags being hatched across the entire continent.
Angel Di Maria opened proceedings with a brace in the 4th and 15th-minute, before Edinson Cavani made it three with 21 minutes elapsed – a goal that saw the Uruguayan notch his 156th goal for PSG and thus draw level with Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the club’s all-time top scorer.
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…
Kylian Mbappe then came on and made it 7-0 in the 77th minute before Neymar once again thrust himself into the limelight, and not in good way.
In the 83rd minute, PSG won themselves a penalty and, despite Cavani being in a position to move out on his own as record goalscorer, it was the Brazilian man-toddler who snatched the taking duties, earning a rousing chorus of boos from fans inside the Parc des Princes.

Regardless, Neymar slotted home the spot-kick to score his fourth goal and PSG’s eighth of the evening.
That puts the Parisians 11 points clear at the top of the table, with a +24 goal-difference advantage over second-placed Lyon.
In short, they’re walking it.
