Edinson Cavani Genuinely Stops Neymar From Scoring With Slide Tackle In First Minute

I think it's fair to say Paris Saint-Germain pair Edinson Cavani and Neymar have a history.

I mean, last year there was a story doing the rounds that the Brazilian told president Nasser Al-Khelaifi that he wanted his teammate offloaded.

There was even an incident where Cavani went to take a free-kick and Dani Alves nabbed the ball off him before passing it to Neymar to take. It wasn't a pretty sight.

Things have improved since, but there was a moment during tonight's Champions League tie against Napoli that could have sparked a feud.

In the opening minute of the game, Neymar went to shoot in the box but was obstructed by Edinson Cavani, who accidentally intercepted the chance and injured his teammate in the process.

Neymar hobbled off the pitch after receiving a boot to the ankle and plenty of PSG fans began to worry about his fitness.





Thankfully the former Barcelona man ran off his knock and carried on.

Napoli currently lead at half-time thanks to a Lorenzo Insigne goal in the opening half hour, as the French champions struggle to get a foot hold of the Champions League tie.

Can they pick up all three points at the Parc des Princes?

Let us know in the comments.
