Paris Saint-Germain fans booed Neymar for refused to let striker Edinson Cavani take a late penalty as the runaway league leader was already leading emphatically and the Uraguay international needed one goal to become Parisian’s all-time leading goalscorer. Brazil star struck a 31-minute hat-trick before with one spectacular solo run and finish, but the biggest talking point of the game arrived seven minutes from time as PSG were awarded a penalty with the home side already 7-0 at Parc des Princes on Wednesday.
It is not the first time Cavani has clashed with Neymar over the taking of a penalty with reports earlier in the season claiming the attacking duo had had a serious falling out.He was later stripped of penalty duties and Neymar has since gained full control.
