Cavani returned the favour with a flawless cut back and Neymar poked the ball home eight minutes from time.

Neymar's long awaited debut for Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday evening did not disappoint.

"It is always very important to score, not just in the first game".

And the world's most expensive player had also been involved in the build-up to the opener in the 52nd minute, a Jordan Ikoko own-goal, as he attempted to play in Cavani.

Neymar then netted the third and winning goal for Paris Saint Germain in the 82nd minutes.

Neymar made his highly-anticipated debut as expected in the club's second game of the season, joining Edinson Cavani and Angel di Maria in a talented front three.

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.

Neymar had earlier provided a delightful 62nd-minute pass from which Cavani struck to make it 2-0.

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 first notice of Neymar's threat was served five minutes later as he jinked inside on his right foot before blasting over from 20 yards, and he nearly created the opener as his teasing cross was thumped against the angle of post and crossbar by an unmarked Marquinhos.
