Watch: PSG's Ligue 1 Piss-Taking Reached New Heights Last Night

From the oil-stained source of their wealth to the fact that they're so nouveau riche Mayo and Waterford were already on the way to All-Ireland drought territory by the time they were formed in 1970, it's easy to hate PSG.

Like so many before, they're successfully attempting to buy their way to Europe's top table. We may well scoff at the manner in which they're throwing around hundred of millions of euro but that doesn't mean we're not going to thoroughly enjoy watching the highlights of Neymar, Mbappe et al tearing Ligue 1 apart week by week.

Case in point, Friday night's 5-1 drubbing of Metz.

Rather than hold a little bit back ahead of the start of the Champions League this week, Unai Emery did Metz no such favours and, for the first time, threw Neymar, Mbappe, Draxler and Cavani out together to see how they'd get on ahead of their trip to Parkhead on Tuesday.

Cavani showed why he's still likely to lead the line in Paris this year with two goals. And, to be fair to Metz, after pulling it back to 1-1, it was the very harsh sending off of Benoit Assou-Ekotto that really gave PSG the impetuous but once that happened, Mbappe and Neymar took over.

The new kid on the block made it 2-1.

Cavani and Lucas Moura rounded out the 5-1 scoreline in a show of strength that Ligue 1 may have to start getting used to. Like we said, it may not be the most gratifying of title processions but that's not to say we're not going to enjoy watching Neymar and Mbappe link up week in, week out.
