Guingamp were taught good football lesson in front of their fans as they had no answer to PSG's attacking duo of Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

Neymar lived up to expectations as he showed his class on his Ligue 1 debut on Sunday, scoring one and setting up another goal in Paris St Germain's 3-0 win at En Avant Guingamp.

"We are trying to improve all the time and we'll get to know each other better yet, but it is easy to play with players of such quality".

Right-back Ikoko, a PSG academy graduate, had been the focus of unfamiliar attention in the build-up as the most likely man to directly oppose Neymar but his downfall early in the second period was all of his own making as his mis-directed pass back towards goalkeeper Karl-Johan Johnsson was too strong and crept in via the upright.

Inevitably all eyes were on the Brazil star, whose first contribution was to loft an ambitious pass from deep towards the run of Di Maria which proved just too heavy.

Neymar, playing mainly as an inside left, threatened sporadically in the opening stages before his cross in the 35th minute found compatriot Marquinhos, who headed against the woodwork. The assist was for Edison Cavani's 62nd minute goal.

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.
