Paris Saint-Germain made a convincing start to its UEFA Champions League Group A campaign with a convincing victory over Dynamo Kiev at the Parc des Princes.
Carlo Ancelotti's side never looked back after establishing a three-goal lead inside 32 minutes, thanks to breakthroughs from Zlatan Ibrahimovic (penalty), Thiago Silva and Alex.
Although Miguel Veloso pulled a goal back four minutes from time, Javier Pastore wrapped up the scoring in injury as PSG ended an eight-year absence from European football's top club competitions in style.
The host was the first to threaten, with Pastore's third-minute shot from barely six yards bringing a good save out of Dynamo goalkeeper Maksym Koval.
The first breakthrough came in the 19th minute. Taras Mykhalyk fouled Jeremy Menez in the penalty area and Ibrahimovic's well-placed penalty beat Koval.
The Swede threatened again two minutes later with a lobbed effort which Koval tipped around a post, before Brown Ideye temporarily halted the one-way traffic - although his long-range effort cleared the crossbar.
Pastore shot wide in the 27th minute and then brought another save out of Koval - but the French side was to make its pressure pay soon after when Menez's 29th-minute corner was converted from close range by Thiago Silva.
Another corner helped the home side go 3-0 up three minutes later, with Clement Chantome's outswinging flag-kick confidently headed home by Alex.
Niko Kranjcar was wide with a rare effort for the visitor in the 42nd minute - but the final chance of the first half went to PSG, with Koval brilliantly catching Ibrahimovic's well-struck 12-yard effort.
The third quarter of the contest saw just one chance, with Ibrahimovic - playing Champions League football for a sixth side - shooting over.
Kranjcar brought a save out of PSG goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu in the 75th minute, before Pastore shot wide at the other end.
Veloso pulled a goal back with four minutes remaining with a curling effort from 20 yards.
However, Pastore restored the three-goal margin in the fading seconds, finishing from 12 yards after Nene had created the opening.
