The six-time Ballon d'Or winner has now challenged his PSG teammates to raise their level of play ahead of the rest of the season.
Speaking after PSG's big win, he said: "It was a great opponent. It was very important for us to win after the draw against Bruges.
"I'm really happy to have scored. I haven't played a lot recently. Just one match at the Parc des Princes, this is my second time here.
"I'm slowly adapting to my new team, my new teammates. The important thing is to have won and to keep progressing."
