Paris St. Germain defeated Bordeaux by six goals to two, with record signing Neymar scoring from both a free kick and a penalty.
The taker of PSG’s set pieces has created a lot of tension in the team, after Neymar and striker Edinson Cavani had an on-field bust up over a penalty.
The issue led to a training room bust up, with club chairman Naseer Al-Khelaifi reportedly offering Cavani one million Euros to let Neymar take the spot kicks.
It’s not known if Cavani took Al-Khelaifi’s offer, but following a handball in the area by a Bordeaux player, Neymar stood up to take the penalty, calmly slotting it into the net.
No PSG penalty drama this time!

Neymar then turned provider for Cavani, setting him up for his own goal. Kylian Mbappe, Julian Draxler and Thomas Meunier also scored a goal each in the rout.
