Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) footballers boosted their confidence ahead of a crucial clash against Barcelona in UEFA Champions League last 16 as they crushed Bordeaux 3-0 here, provisionally levelling with Ligue 1 leaders Monaco with one more game played.

PSG on Friday needed just six minutes to open their scoring account, as the league’s top scorer Edinson Cavani diverted Marquinhos’ long ball into the net, reports Xinhua.

Bordeaux, seventh placed side in the league, had a good run of six matches unbeaten, before it seemed to come to an end around the interval.

Four minutes before the half-time, Argentina winger Angel Di Maria had his second Ligue 1 goal of the season, fueled by Marco Verratti’s brilliant assist.

Cavani recorded his 25th goal of the campaign three minutes into the second half, when Di Maria’s cross from the left wing found the Uruguayan who converted to his another fabulous shot of the night, also his seven Ligue 1 goals of his last five games.

PSG are now only on goal difference behind from the leaders Monaco.
