Ligue 1: Neymar booed by PSG supporters after another clash with Cavani

Paris Saint-Germain forward, Neymar, was the target of boos from his own fans during an 8-0 thrashing of Dijon on Wednesday night.

Neymar netted four goals as the league leaders extended their lead to 11 points, ahead of Sunday’s fixture against second-placed Lyon.

The Brazilian also provided two assists, but his performance was marred by another on-pitch disagreement with Edinson Cavani.

Cavani headed in PSG’s third goal of the night, to draw level with the club’s record goalscorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic on 156 in all competitions.

But when the Uruguay striker won a late penalty with Neymar having completed his hat-trick, the former Barcelona man denied his team-mate the chance to break Ibrahimovic’s record.

The Parc des Princes crowd chanted for Cavani to take the kick and Neymar was whistled after he stepped up to convert from 12 yards.

Defender Thiago Silva insists his compatriot was unaffected by the reaction to his decision to take the penalty.

“No, I do not think he was angry when he left.

“There was some of the supporters against him, but the most important thing is the final score and the win.

“And for Edi, the record will come. He scores all the time, there are still a lot of games to play this year, he will beat all records,” Silva told Canal+
