Edinson Cavani, Pablo Sarabia, and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting combined to score four second-half goals against ESA Linas-Montlhéry on Sunday evening in the Coupe de France Round of 64 to put PSG up 6-0 over the amateur side.
Linas-Montlhéry, who plays in the sixth division of French football, put up a valiant effort in the first 20 minutes or so of the match but PSG’s superior quality shined brightly in the second half.
Already up 2-0 with goals from Adil Aouchiche and Edinson Cavani, PSG continued to apply the pressure in the second half with El Matador scoring his second on the night albeit it kind of a scrappy goal set up by Julian Draxler.

PSG’s next goal came three minutes later with Sarabia this time getting on the end of a Cavani pass. PSG’s all-time leading scorer could have taken the shot on himself for the hat trick but he unselfishly passed to the Spaniard to set up his first goal of the night.
The former Sevilla FC man wasn’t done with just one goal. In the 69th minute, with Linas-Montlhéry goalkeeper Ali Lutumba slipping, Sarabia fired a shot from outside the box to record his sixth goal for PSG since arriving last summer.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who came on for Ander Herrera in the 65th minute, found his goal late in the match after wasting several easy scoring opportunities.
