Neymar & Cavani In Heated Penalty Row

Neymar & Edinson Cavani In Heated Penalty Row

Paris Saint-Germain made it six wins from six league games on Sunday night, but it was the incident between Neymar and teammate Edinson Cavani, when they fought over a penalty kick, that grabbed the headlines.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see what happened!

The French giants beat Olympique Lyon, who were also unbeaten up until Sunday, 2-0 courtesy of two own goals from the visitors to continue their brilliant start to the new campaign.

Both goals came in the second half, but eyebrows were raised when Dani Alves refused to give Cavani the ball for a free-kick and instead handed it to his countryman Neymar, according to ESPN.

The world record signing failed to score with any of his set-pieces during the game, though, and more drama occurred when PSG were awarded a spot-kick when they were 1-0 up.

Cavani, who has been the Ligue 1 side's penalty taker ever since Zlatan Ibrahimovic left, placed the ball on the spot. Neymar, though, also wanted to take the kick and argued with the Uruguayan, who eventually took the penalty, only to see it saved by Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

The Brazilian has scored five goals in his first six games for PSG, and assisted another five strikes, while Cavani sits on nine strikes in seven games, but it remains to be seen who will take Les Parisiens' next spot-kick.

Do you think Neymar has a right to replace Cavani as PSG's penalty taker? Have your say in the comments section below.

The coach must decide on the first choice penalty taker and in this cake he got two first choices so why not make them agree to alternate. For instance if first penalty of the match is take taken by cavani the next one is neymar's and if there's only one penalty in a match the first penalty of the forthcoming match is neymar's and vice versa!

Neymar and Cavani are the main key players For PSG,Every team in big leagues wish to have the players of their calibers,we all know that Neymar switched to Ligue1 Side to fight for World no1 spot (Balloon dor).So need his teammates to achieve that or vise versa,So taking every free kick gonna bring confidence to the Brazilian Star and Uruguayan as well,but only if they are being converted or used wisely.Players must give each other chance when it comes to penalty taker,you can't replace someone while he/she's still there.

Cavali must score from open play to make his goal scoring charts impressive not to rely on penalties. Penalties are for the stars like Neymar not u cow,and it's not for the first time he gave it to last cos he was still new

Dani Alves wants his countrymen to be the best in the world but the way is going on about it ..it's very wrong considering his experience from the game. He shouldn't do such things

Neymar is wrong now, we know he is a big player for PSG but you can not dethrone the penalty taker that you found at the club like that. He is going to break the team spirit like this, very unprofessional. These Brazilian guys will cause a problem at this team in a long run, why did Alves refuse to give ball to Cavani to take the free kick??? Problems coming sooner than later for PSG, the clubs Hirachy must stand up and fix this before its too late.

You can not pay €222m for someone to be a second choice. Neymar was brought to be PSG main man, so Cowvani can just hand in transfer request. Some of you are just cowishly insult/criticise Neymar for nix. Neymar is PSG main man, is what Messi and Ronaldo are in their respectively teams.

Yoh!! so Cavan took the penalty and failed to score.I am sure they were like 'u see Cavan'.This Neymer boy fights and strives for success everywhere he plays and dus why he has been succesful everywhere he has gone..If he was from Argentina,argentina wud have won the worldcup coz they are lucking such a one.
