Cavani misses penalty again for PSG – and Neymar can’t believe it

Edinson Cavani missed a penalty for Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night when he was given the nod over Neymar.

The pair rowed in September when Cavani missed from the spot – and he did the same against Troyes despite Neymar also being on the pitch.

The Uruguayan himself was fouled by Karim Azamoum but his effort was saved by Erwin Zelazny.

PSG went on to win 2-0 thanks to goals from the duo, first from Neymar, and then Cavani late on.

Cavani’s miss came just a week after he revealed Neymar would be on penalty duties following the row which reportedly split the dressing room.

The former Barcelona player eventually apologised but Cavani admitted the pair are not the best of friends.

He said: “Neymar is successful and knows how to face pressure.

“We don’t need to be friends. We will help each other on the pitch.”
