Cavani double gives PSG victory over Bordeaux

Edinson Cavani

Edinson Cavani has scored nine goals in eight appearances in all competitions for PSG this season

Paris St-Germain kept up the pressure on Ligue 1 leaders Nice with victory over Bordeaux thanks to two goals from Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani.

PSG took the lead in the third minute when Cavani headed in at the near post from Angel di Maria’s cross.

Cavani scored twice on Wednesday in the Champions League against Ludogorets and got another double with a clever backheeled flick on the half-hour mark.

PSG are a point behind table-topping Nice, who host Lorient on Sunday.
