Paris St Germain's Edinson Cavani struck twice as the French champions eased to a 3-0 victory at Bordeaux and moved level on points with Ligue 1 leaders Monaco.

The Uruguay striker put PSG ahead after six minutes with a fine volley following a long pass from Marquinhos and Argentine Angel di Maria doubled the lead with a cool finish four minutes before halftime.

Cavani, the leading scorer in Ligue 1 this season, turned in Di Maria's cross to grab his second two minutes after the interval for his 25th of the campaign.
