Neymar scores as PSG wins Cean in Ligue 1

 Neymar scored on his first Ligue 1 appearance since February as Paris Saint-Germain downed Caen 3-0 in Thomas Tuchel’s first home game in charge.

Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe were absent – though the latter was involved in a pre-match World Cup presentation at the Parc des Princes on Sunday – but Neymar helped ensure a comfortable victory for the champions.

The Brazilian scored early, capitalising on the first of two Brice Samba mistakes to slot in a Christopher Nkunku pass, with Adrien Rabiot adding a second from Angel Di Maria’s excellent assist before the break.

Gianluigi Buffon’s Ligue 1 debut was mostly uneventful, the former Juventus and Italy goalkeeper able to keep a clean sheet after Stef Peeters hit the post with a free-kick in the second half, while Timothy Weah capitalised on another Samba error to complete the scoring in the 89th minute with his first Ligue 1 goal.
