Paris St-Germain handed out a 5-0 thrashing to Amiens as they extended their perfect Ligue 1 start with their 10th consecutive win of the season
Even without Neymar, Silva and Meunier – who were rested with Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Napoli in mind – PSG were far too strong.
The opener came from Di Maria’s corner and the Argentinian sent in another near-post delivery from a set piece that Rabiot nodded in to make it 2-0 before half-time. Amiens were denied a route back into the game early in the second period as Areola made a double save to stop Monconduit and Ghoddos.
A nervy finish for PSG might have been in store had Otero’s header from a corner gone inside the post rather than hitting the side-netting, but 2 more goals for the hosts in 2 minutes put the result beyond doubt.
An unmarked Draxler headed in the 3rd before Mbappe got in on the act with 8 minutes remaining, placing a shot between a defender’s legs and inside the near post. Diaby, who had come on for Di Maria, then danced his way to fire home his side’s 5th of the night.
