WATCH: Neymar And Edinson Cavani Argue Over PSG Penalty
Neymar really wants to take penalties but Edinson Cavani just ins't budging, with the pair of attackers arguing last night over the spot kick.
Paris Saint-Germain passed their first test of the domestic season as they saw of the threat of Lyon to clinch a 2-0 home victory. The three points ensured the clubs 100% league record.
Though PSG's fearsome trident 'MCN' failed to get on the score sheet with Cavani and Mbappe's efforts eventually going over the line via the aid of a deflection.
But that wasn't the main talking point. Tension continued to rise between the Uruguayan striker and Neymar as they argued over a penalty.
As Cavani puts the ball down, Neymar approaches him. A few words are exchanged before the Brazilian begrudgingly walks away.
To make things worse, Cavani then rattles the bar courtesy of a brilliant save from the Lyon keeper.
It's the second time this season Neymar has asked to take a penalty, and fans were yet again quick to point out the difference between Cavani and Lionel Messi who was extremely selfless to his ex-teammate.
Cavani refusing to hand the ball to Neymar, as they say, not everyone is Leo Messi. There are plenty of ego maniacs out there..

Messi used to give away a hatrick to give Neymar a penalty, & he's now begging Cavani for it. You need to put some respek on Messi's name

Egos clashing between Neymar & Cavani at PSG proves how massive Messi is -- not just as a football player, but as a person.

Neymar is definitely missing Messi giving him penalties right about now... Don't think he envisioned getting bullied off of pens by Cavani.

Meanwhile, manager Unai Emery has vowed to step in should the situation escalate.
"I have told them to sort it out between themselves," he said via BBC.
"I think that they are capable of doing that and that they will both be our kickers. If they cannot reach an agreement, I will decide for them.
"I do not want this to become a problem for us," Emery added.
Following Cavani fluffing his lines last night, it'll be interesting to see who takes the next penalty. Will Neymar finally get his wish?
