Paris Saint-Germain overcame the disappointment of their Champions League defeat to Real Madrid by beating Strasbourg 5-2 on Saturday.

Alarm bells were ringing when Jean Aholou opened the scoring for Strasbourg in the sixth minute, but Julian Draxler, Neymar and Angel Di Maria all scored before the 22nd minute to put the hosts in control.

Stephane Bahoken brought the visitors within a goal in the 67th minute before Edinson Cavani scored twice in six minutes for PSG to put the game away.

PSG restored their 12-point lead atop Ligue 1 with the result.
