Disregarding the baffling performance Neymar put up for his side, the celebrated forward endured boos from the home support, as Paris Saint-Germain established an indisputable 8-0 victory against Dijon at home last night.
The Parc des Princes crowd feasted their eyes with majestic football plays, as the Brazilian ravished the opposition’s defence, scoring four goals and setting up two others for the Parisians.
The overwhelming victory was enjoyed by the fans, conspicuous by the intensity they exhibited throughout till PSG got awarded a penalty as the game neared its late moments.
The former Barca attacker instigated an act of displeasure amongst fans with one of his self-indulgent acts. He refused to hand over the penalty to Edinson Cavani, whose earlier goal had rendered him level with PSG’s all-time top goalscorer, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
A second strike would’ve seen the Uruguayan getting crowned as the goal king of Les Parisiens, yet the big-budget 25-year-old chose to steal the spotlight, converting the chance and marking up his fourth goal of the day.
Naturally, the supporters took their stand against it, yelling for Cavani to have his moment at the top of their lungs, only to behold the selfish judgment of the instrumental figure. Despite being the man to win the penalty, the experienced figure’s opportunity was snatched away.
However, although it frustrated him a bit, Cavani didn’t refrain himself from high-fiving his star teammate after Neymar marked the fourth to his tally.
The 83rd minute had the voice of displeasure from the crowd in the framework, as the team members enjoyed their 8th goal of the day.
With the scenario expected to continue in the future, it is not the first time the attacking duo has caused controversies with reports this season, falling out whenever a penalty or free-kick is up for the grabs.
