The Uruguay international nodded in his 156th goal for the Parisian club, putting him level with the Swedish star

Edinson Cavani has equalled Zlatan Ibrahimovic's record of 156 goals for Paris Saint-Germain in all competitions.

The Uruguay international headed in an Angel Di Maria cross during the first half of PSG's Ligue 1 tie against Dijon on Wednesday evening, giving Unai Emery's side a 3-0 lead following an early Di Maria double. Neymar stole the show from that point on, scoring four goals as PSG rolled to an 8-0 triumph, with Kylian Mbappe also on the scoresheet.

Cavani's strike moved him further into the lead in the goalscoring rankings in the French top flight, taking him to the 20-goal mark — four more than his closest rival for the accolade, Monaco's Radamel Falcao.

Cavani and Ibrahimovic head a list of iconic figures in PSG's all-time scoring charts, with former Portugal international Pauleta behind the pair with 109 goals.

The only other player to have hit the 100-mark for the capital club is Dominique Rocheteau, the former France winger who enjoyed a prolific seven-season spell with the club during the 1980s.

Ibrahimovic and Cavani are also tied for the most goals scored in a single match, the former hitting four goals against both Anderlecht in 2013 and Troyes in 2016, with the latter matching the feat during a Ligue 1 tie with Caen in September 2016.
