Neymar on penalty duty as PSG thrash Bordeaux

Sunday 1st October , 2017 12:13 pm

Neymar scored twice – including a penalty – as Paris St-Germain thrashed Bordeaux in Ligue 1.

The penalty he scored was the first PSG have been awarded since Neymar and Edinson Cavani argued over who would take one against Lyon – with Cavani taking it and missing.

Neymar had already scored a brilliant free-kick against Bordeaux, with Cavani and Thomas Meunier adding goals to make it 3-0 before Younousse Sankhare pulled one back.

PSG then won their penalty, with the Brazilian stepping up to score and immediately celebrating with Cavani.

Julian Draxler and Kylian Mbappe scored two more for PSG, before Jonathan Cafu’s late consolation penalty.

Neymar and Cavani will share penalty duties, fellow goalscorer Meunier revealed after the game.

“It was arranged with the coach before today. If there had been another penalty, it would have been for Edi,” said the Belgium international.

The win took PSG three points clear of champions Monaco, who drew 1-1 with Montpellier on Friday.
