Leo Messi v Real Madrid

Edinson Cavani’s ‘Leo Messi’ joke upset Neymar

Edinson Cavani v Neymar

Did PSG try to pay off Edinson Cavani after his recent feud with Neymar?

To recap, the problems between PSG’s two South American forwards began in the 2-0 win over Lyon,.

Firstly, Dani Alves stopped Cavani taking a free-kick, before Neymar took control of the set-play.

PSG later won a penalty. Neymar wanted to take it, but Cavani shooed the world’s most expensive player away from the scene. Cavani then saw his spot-kick saved.

According to Monday’s updates in El Pais, Cavani has turned down a €1 million bonus to allow Neymar to take PSG’s penalties.

Who will take PSG’s next penalty when Neymar and Cavani are both on the pitch?

Cavani’s ‘Leo Messi’ joke

El Pais have also reported on the first time Neymar took issue with Cavani after he joined PSG from Barcelona.

According to the Spanish paper, Neymar had his nose put out of joint when they first met.

Cavani’s initial response to meeting the Brazilian in the French capital was to say:

And who is this? Do you think you’re Messi?

Neymar reportedly took that badly, as the Brazilian left to Camp Nou to escape Messi’s shadow.

PSG v Bayern Munich

PSG feature in one of the standout Champions League matches in gameweek two, as they host Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

That will see former PSG manager Carlo Ancelotti return to the Parc de Princes with the Germans.

Bayern (13 points) have started the Bundesliga season rather badly by their own high standards. They are only third in the table, behind Hoffenheim (14 points) and Borussia Dortmund (16 points).

Bayern have also lost Manuel Neuer until the new year as the goalie suffered a broken foot.

The Germans beat Anderlecht 3-0 in matchday one of the UCL.

As for PSG, they looked awesome in a 5-0 away win at Celtic.
