The Uruguayan had been in dreadful form in front of goal at the Emirates Stadium, but showed far more poise to ensure PSG continued their unbeaten start to the competition
Edinson Cavani put his woes from Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League opener with Arsenal behind him with a double in a 3-1 win over Ludogorets on Wednesday.
Cavani netted in the opening minute of PSG’s first Group A game this month but became the scapegoat for fluffing a simple finish later in the game as Arsenal equalised late on to claim a point.
And it looked for long periods as if PSG would have to settle for another disappointing result at the Vasil Levski National Stadium, Ludogorets opening the scoring in the 15th minute through full-back Natanael’s free-kick.
Unai Emery’s men offered little in way of a reply in the first half until they levelled shortly before the interval thanks to Blaise Matuidi’s first goal of the season.
PSG were then rewarded for an improved start to the second half, Cavani completing the turnaround 10 minutes after the restart, but survived a major scare when Cosmin Moti’s penalty was saved by Alphonse Areola soon afterwards.
The visitors then ensured their would be no way back for Ludogorets as Lucas Moura set up Cavani for a close-range second goal.
