Neymar Dare Against Cavani Not Messi
The feud between two Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star Edinson Cavani and Neymar, also draws attention from Diego Forlan who is a former Uruguayan striker.
A shootout between Neymar and Cavani spiced in PSG’s 2-0 win over Olympique Lyon in the French League’s sixth week 2017-2018, Sunday (17/09/2017).
The incident occurred in the 80th minute. Both players scramble to be the executioner of a penalty.
At first Cavani advanced toward the white point. However, suddenly Neymar came to seize the allotment to become executor.
According to Forlan, Neymar would not dare to do the same to Lionel Messi while still in charge at FC Barcelona.
“Neymar will not do it to Messi,” said Cavani’s former colleagues in Uruguay’s national team.
“Neymar does not want Cavani to take a penalty, he is like a troubling little boy,” Forlan said.
In fact, Messi 11 times let Neymar take a penalty for both players grazing together in Barca in four seasons.
Of these, Neymar five times failed to convert chances from a 12 fitting point.
