Edinson Cavani scores twice as Paris Saint Germain hammer Nantes

All's Well in Paris! Neymar will take PSG's next penalty, says Edinson Cavani

Cavani netted either side of half-time as Javier Pastore and Angel Di Maria also scored to put the unbeaten capital side on 35 points from 13 games, six ahead of second-placed Monaco after the champions were held to a 1-1 at Amiens on Friday.

Paris St-Germain extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to six points with a 4-1 victory at home to Nantes.

Nakulma reduced the arrears on the hour mark from close range but Nantes' hopes were short lived.

Cavani opened the scoring with a clinical finish from inside the box after being perfectly set up by Pastore.

Further pressure from the home side was rewarded in the 79th minute when Cavani grabbed his second, applying another emphatic finish from inside the area to wrap up another comfortable win.

PSG looked threatening in the early exchanges with Neymar Jr. and Edinson Cavani asking questions of the Nantes defence.

Unai Emery's charges responded quickly and regained their two-goal advantage after Marco Verrati played Pastore through on goal with the Argentine finishing calmly to make it 3-1 to PSG in the 65th minute.

It was the Uruguay striker's 14th goal after 13 games in the league, the best tally in the French championship since Dick van Dijk with Nice in the 1972-73 season.

Just four minutes later Les Parisiens doubled their lead, when Di Maria's long-range strike found the bottom left corner from a tight angle.
