Neymar shouts at Kylian Mbappe after the Frenchman failed to pass him the ball for a tap in

Neymar was captured shouting at Kylian Mbappe after the Frenchman failed to pass him the ball during Paris Saint Germain’s Champions League clash against Juventus

PSG raced to a 2-0 lead at half time thanks to a brace inside 22 minutes from Mbappe

The first goal was a thing of beauty as Neymar delicately chipped the ball over the Juventus defence for Mbappe to latch onto, the 23-year-old finished expertly with a spectacular volley. 

PSG made it 2-0 in the 22nd minute, Mbappe double his tally as he turned home a cut back from right back Achraf Hakimi.

In the second half, PSG were pushing for a third goal.

Mbappe was through on the right hand side after Lionel Messi played him through, with Neymar free and unmarked to his left, Mbappe chose not to pass and instead fired a shot wide of goal. 

Neymar was not happy as he bellowed towards his teammate for not passing him the ball for an easy tap in. It was a glorious chance to make it 3-0 and to seal the victory but they failed to do so.

To make matters worst, Juventus scored minutes later after Weston McKennie scored to make it 2-1. 

In recent weeks, there were speculations that tensions were building between Neymar and Mbappe. However, Mbappe denied the rumours when speaking ahead of the match.

He said during the pre match press conference: "To talk about Neymar, this is the sixth year, I think we've always had a relationship like this based on respect. 

“But we've always had moments like this where sometimes we've had moments that were a bit colder and moments that were a bit hotter.

“There are times, you'll see, when we're the best of friends and sometimes we don't talk so much, it's the nature of our relationship that's like that.”

Mbappe added: “But there is a lot of respect, I have a lot of respect for the player he is, the player he represents and the importance he has in our team.

“Afterwards, when you have two players with a strong character like that, life is not linear, it's sure that sometimes things happen but it always remains in the respect and in the interest of PSG.”
