Cavani scored a penalty kick in PSG's 3-1 win against Nice over the weekend.

Cavani's record of nine goals through 29 Ligue 1 matches is a bit disappointing, but across all 38 appearances he's made for PSG this season, the Uruguayan has registered a much better tally of 22 goals. Six of those scores have come in the Champions League and Tuesday's match at Barcelona represents an occasion when his absolute best will be required for Paris Saint-Germain.

Cavani took three shots and score in the 54th minute of PSG's 1-1 Champions League draw with Chelsea on Tuesday.

Cavani, who was suspended by the club for the last two matches, came on in the 68th minute and scored in the 89th to help PSG win 4-2 against Evian on Sunday.

Cavani took only one shot in the game and it found the back of the net. He now has eight goals on the season, which ties him with five other players for third in Ligue 1.

Cavani, along with teammate Ezequiel Lavezzi, has been suspended for the next two matches for returning late from a holiday break and missing a training camp in Morocco, the BBC reports.

Cavani will miss a French cup match against Montpellier on Monday, following by their Ligue 1 tie with Bastia on Saturday, before being eligible to play Jan. 18 against Evian. He has seven goals in 18 appearances this season, and his absence should spell more playing time up front for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and possibly Jean-Cristophe Bahebeck.

Cavani scored two goals in Tuesday's 3-1 Champions League victory over Ajax.

Cavani now has five goals in five Champions League matches this season. He is one of Paris Saint-Germain's best scoring options, but he will face a tough test as PSG finish group play with a trip to Barcelona. When the two teams met back in September, Cavani finished with four shot attempts (one on target) but was unable to score.

After netting in PSG's 2-0 win over Marseille on Sunday, Cavani has now scored in five straight matches in all competitions.

Three goals in Ligue 1 play and two in the Champions League have Cavani finally looking like the player PSG bought from Napoli before last season. However, his role may change a bit now that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned from his heel injury. Cavani will look to extend his club goal-streak to six games Nov. 22 against Metz.

The Uruguayan now has five goals in Ligue 1 this season.
