|Edinson Cavani celebrating his double against Bordeaux|
Edinson Cavani played the starring role as Paris Saint-Germain prowess overpowered Bordeaux to pick up a 2-0 victory at the Parc des Princes.
Unai Emery’s side went down 2-0 to Toulouse last weekend and have been left playing catch-up in the early knockings of the Ligue 1 title race behind Monaco and Nice.
But they looked every inch France’s dominant side on Saturday, with Cavani scoring a pair of superb first-half goals to put PSG well in command.
Bordeaux had not lost in the sides’ previous three meetings but they were comprehensively outplayed in this encounter, with former PSG favourite Jeremy Menez ploughing a lone furrow in attack for the most part.
Cavani had chances for a hat-trick in the second half, but he was unable to find a third goal as PSG eased to a fifth win of the Ligue 1 season.
