After Paris St-Germain forwards Neymar and Edinson Cavani appeared to disagree over who would take PSG’s penalty in the closing stages of a game against Lyon, all eyes were on the duo during their Champions League game against Bayern Munich.
Mbappe surges up, Cavani to his right, Neymar to his left. Gives it Cavani, who shoots wide. Neymar glares at Mbappe. #bodylanguage— Miguel Delaney (@MiguelDelaney) September 27, 2017
What the game needed to see how the pair’s relationship was going was a goal from one of the two – and luckily for the headline writers, Cavani obliged in the first half.
An Edinson Cavani cracker! 💥

Now, Neymar did eventually go over to Cavani to celebrate, but certainly not immediately.
I can't believe I'm watching this kind of thing but... Neymar doesn't immediately celebrate with Cavani, waits for Mbappe, then goes over.— Miguel Delaney (@MiguelDelaney) September 27, 2017
PSG’s on-field chemistry certainly wasn’t suffering however as Kylian Mbappe found Neymar for a goal of his own.

Afterwards, with the score 3-0 to the Ligue 1 side, it was nice to see Cavani and Neymar celebrating together.

An easy win was just what this relationship needed – thank goodness for that.
