The match in numbers...

Take a look back at Paris Saint-Germain's 3-2 win over Metz through some of the match's key stats...

8 By winning 3-2 in Metz, Paris Saint-Germain equalled the number of successive away wins in the league in a single season. After Rennes (1-0), Nantes (2-0), Dijon (3-1), Bordeaux (3-0), Marseille (5-1), Lorient (2-1), and Angers (2-0), the capital club registered  their eighth consecutive away win, equalling the record set by Olympique de Marseille by winning their last eight away games of the 2008-09 season.

16 By laying on the first two goals, Maxwell provided his fourth and fifth assists of the season, a personal best for the Brazilian in a season. He has registered 16 assists since 2012-13 in Ligue 1, the second-best tally among defenders behind his Paris team-mate Serge Aurier (19).

30 The scorer of Paris' first goal, Edinson Cavani now has 30 Ligue 1 goals this season, a career-best for him in a single season. Right now, he has the best total of any player in one of Europe's top five leagues. He's the third Paris player to achieve the tally in a Ligue 1 campaign after Carlos Bianchi (37 in 1977/78) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (30 in 2012/13 and 38 in 2015/16).

50 Unai Emery took charge of his 50th Paris game in Metz with 37 wins, eight draws and five defeats in all competitions. It equals the record of his predecessor Laurent Blanc, but Emery has a better goal difference (+81 to +79).

285 Blaise Matuidi scored twice in Metz in what was his 285th game in all competitions in the Rouge-et-Bleu shirt. He's now joint-eighth in the Club's all-time list of appearances with Joël Bats and just five shy of Eric Renaut. With his strike three minutes into added time, he secured the win, and the number 14 was the last man to score so late  away from home with a goal against Saint-Etienne (2-2, 27 October, 2013).
