Neymar bagged a goal and an assist on debut as Paris Saint-Germain registered a 3-0 win over Guingamp on Ligue 1 on Sunday evening. The assist was for Edison Cavani's 62nd minute goal.

PSG's opener came early in the second-half, with Jordan Ikoko putting through his own net (in incredible fashion) after Neymar's pass to Edinson Cavani was initially intercepted.

The record attendance at the tiny Roudourou stadium was broken as 18,378 fans attended the much-anticipated debut of the Brazil forward.

In the 35th minute, he scooped a delicate cross above the defence but Marquinhos's header crashed onto the bar.

With Di Maria, Julian Draxler, Lucas Moura and Javier Pastore in their squad, PSG already have many options out wide in the final third, but Neymar brings an extra level of attacking verve.

Karl-Johan Johnsson then tipped Cavani's free kick over his bar as Guingamp held firm.

Not to be upstaged, Neymar had a more direct influence on PSG's second as his delightful throughball released Cavani to coolly beat Johnsson.

Earlier, champions Monaco kept up their own impressive start to the new campaign with a convincing 1-4 victory away to Dijon - former Chelsea and Manchester United striker Falcao nabbed an impressive hat-trick while man of the moment Kylian Mbappe had to settle for a seat on the bench.

The win sees PSG join four other clubs as the remaining teams with a 100% record after two league games.
