Neymar hits four, Cavani matches record as PSG crush Dijon

  • Neymar lawyer:

"But there will be lots more chances for Cavani to score more goals".

Kylian Mbappe then made it 7-0 in the 77th minute before Neymar once again thrust himself into the limelight, and not in good way.

You can watch all of Neymar's goals right here.

The Brazilian was in sparkling form for Paris Saint-Germain as they strengthened their grip on the top of the table.

However, the forward was jeered by some supporters after he refused to allow Edinson Cavani to take the penalty and score his side's eighth, despite the Uruguay striker needing only one goal to become the club's all-time top scorer on 157.

Neymar scored four goals, created another two, and completed seven dizzying dribbles, yet the £200 million player's pitch flawless performance was still booed by the club's fans at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris.

The Argentine added his fifth Ligue 1 goal of the season after 15 minutes, prodding in from a yard out with Neymar's deft chip over Reynet seemingly drifting narrowly wide, Giovani Lo Celso having won back possession deep in Dijon territory.

In fairness to Cavani, he didn't make too much of a fuss of letting Neymar take it but it was the home fans who voiced their feelings, shouting "Cavani, Cavani" as Neymar stepped up.

The former Barcelona player, who also set up two goals, was booed when he took the penalty as Cavani would have broken the club scoring record had he taken and converted it.

Meunier believes it was unfair to react in such a way, especially given Neymar's overall performance in the commanding win.

Neymar was reportedly left angered over the response received from the fans and left the pitch fuming.

The goal involved patient build-up play from the PSG defence, pin-point accuracy in midfield, and self-confident dribbling from Neymar as the attacker coasted past three Dijon defenders before powering the ball home.

Do you think Neymar should have given the penalty to Cavani?
