Julian Draxler scored on his competitive debut for PSG 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.
