I Am PSG's Penalty Taker, Not Cavani — Neymar

I Am PSG's Penalty Taker, Not Cavani — Neymar

After a rare Ligue 1 loss over the weekend to Lyon, PSG will look to turn around and seek a bit of retribution against poor Montpellier.

Edinson Cavani has become Paris Saint-Germain's all-time top scorer after netting his 157th goal for the club in Saturday's clash with Montpellier.

Cavani was presented with a statuette to mark his record, and was clearly delighted to have received such a unique honour.

Toulouse stay in the relegation zone but their chances of survival enjoyed a boost as they edged to a 1-0 win over fellow basement battlers Troyes.

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi suggested that the transfer talk emerging from Spain could be an attempt to destabilise the French side ahead of the meeting between the two sides next month. The Frenchman put in a much simpler and more effective performance here, even if Montpellier rarely threatened seriously.

Neymar will aid that, as in Lyon and at times against Guingamp since his Dijon masterclass, PSG's attack has lacked fluidity. I gave him some advice and told him about all the good things I'd experienced at the club and in the city.

"The France team is something important for me". Well, fans weren't happy and he was booed.

Paris Saint-Germain may be willing to let Neymar join Real Madrid this summer.

Many expected the Catalan giants to struggle, but that hasn't been the case, with Messi revealing his absence forced them to change their style of play, and they've not looked back since.

Cavani was booked a yellow card for throwing his jersey to the crowds when celebrating the goal.

You sense Madrid will continue to be linked with a move for Neymar, though, as the European champions are consistently interested in signing the world's best attackers.

"But it wasn't like that this time".

DF Marquinhos, 6 - The Brazilian replaced compatriot Silva as captain at half-time and was equally as solid during the second 45.
