EDIN­SON CA­VANI (pix) was at his clin­i­cal best yes­ter­day with a first-half brace as Paris Sain­tGer­main eased to a 2-0 vic­tory over Bordeaux, while Monaco thrashed Metz 7-0 to re­turn to the top of Ligue 1. The oft-ma­ligned Ca­vani struck twice in the first half-hour at the Parc des Princes as PSG built on their mid­week Cham­pi­ons League win away to Lu­do­gorets in Bul­garia and got back on track do­mes­ti­cally. Paris had come into the week­end in fourth spot in the table hav­ing lost at Toulouse last time out, their sec­ond de­feat in just seven league matches un­der new coach Unai Emery. “It’s pos­si­ble this was our best match of the sea­son, but in the sec­ond half we could have scored a third goal to make things eas­ier and boost our con­fi­dence,” said Emery, who wel­comed the re­turn of the club’s ul­tras af­ter a six-year ban. “The at­mo­sphere was good. It is more pos­i­tive for the team and shows it’s spe­cial to play at the Parc des Princes.”
