PARIS (Reuters) - Julian Draxler scored on his competitive debut for Paris St Germain as the holders cantered into the last 32 of the French Cup with a 7-0 demolition of fellow Ligue 1 club Bastia on Saturday.
Thiago Silva opened the scoring after half an hour with a powerful header from Lucas’s corner.
Adrien Rabiot doubled the tally two minutes from the interval with a 30-metre missile.
Christopher Nkunku added a third three minutes into the second half with a crossed shot after a 30-metre run, while Thiago Motta made it 4-0 in the 57th minute with a diving header.
One minute later, Rabiot was replaced by Germany midfielder Draxler, who produced a fine display as he made his PSG competitive debut four days after completing his transfer from VfL Wolfsburg.
Lucas scored a 63rd-minute penalty after being brought down and Angel Di Maria increased the lead to 6-0 after collecting Thomas Meunier’s cross in the area.
Draxler rounded off the rout with a delicate chip.
Elsewhere, CFA2 (fifth division) team Sarreguemines upset Ligue 2 side Stade de Reims 2-1. On Friday, Monaco advanced with a 2-1 win against AC Ajaccio.
