HIGHLIGHTS + REPORT: Paris Saint-Germain v Montpellier

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani was ecstatic after his strike in Sunday's (AEDT) 4-0 win over Montpellier took him past Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the club's record goalscorer.

Cavani converted Adrien Rabiot's cross in the 11th minute, his 157th strike for the Ligue 1 giant, to set a new benchmark.

Cavani was presented with a trophy after the game in front of a giant and lit-up '157' by president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Cavani threw his shirt into the crowd in celebrating his goal, giving a lucky home fan a souvenir, and the striker expressed his delight to be woven into the fabric of PSG.

"It's something magnificent, I'm very emotional," Cavani said.

"In life, you're not always given so much warmth. I'm very content, very happy to be here."
