Soccer-Choupo-Moting breaks Toulouse resistance with solo goal

PARIS, Aug 25 (Reuters) - Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored a second-half brace, including a sublime solo goal, as titleholders Paris St Germain thumped brave Toulouse 4-0 in their Ligue 1 match on Sunday.

The Cameroon player danced through the Toulouse defence to break the deadlock in the 50th minute and an unlucky own goal by Matthieu Goncalves gifted PSG their second five minutes later.

Angel Di Maria saw a penalty saved by Baptiste Reynet before Choupo-Moting added the third in the 75th minute and Marquinhos completed the scoring.

However, muscular injuries for both Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe took some of the gloss of the Parisians’ evening as they bounced back from their 2-1 defeat against Rennes the week before. (Writing by Brian Homewood, editing by Pritha Sarkar)
