Neymar not angered by PSG boos after Cavani penalty snub, says Silva

Neymar has been in fine form ever since securing his move to Paris Saint Germain in a world record move which saw him become the world's most expensive professional footballer.

Kylian Mbappe scored in the 77th minute to give the home squad a 7-0 advantage.

Cavani bagged his 156th goal in all competitions for PSG, matching the club record of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who played for the club from 2012-16.

Neymar scored four goals, created another two, and completed seven dizzying dribbles, yet the £200 million player's pitch ideal performance was still booed by the club's fans at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris.

Just to rub salt into the wound, Neymar buried a penalty past Reynet in the 83rd minute. The Brazilian star was in the spotlight again last night as he scored a sensational four goals to take him to 15 goals for the season. "Cavani! Cavani!" yet Neymar ignored the fan demand, took the penalty kick himself, and effectively denied his teammate the chance to etch himself into the history books.

Meunier believes it was unfair to react in such a way, especially given Neymar's overall performance in the commanding win.

BT Sport reported that Neymar was upset by the booing.

"I think Neymar took the penalty because it was also a good day for him", said PSG boss Unai Emery.

And, with Dijon unable to cope with the hosts' attacking fluency, Cavani then headed in his 156th goal for the club to draw level with Ibrahimovic as PSG's top goalscorer in all competitions, Di Maria providing the ideal cross from the right.

In total, Neymar tallied 121 touches on the football, attempted 79 passes, and completed seven dribbles. Neymar added his second before scoring a sensational third.

PSG is next in action on Sunday when it travels to Olympique Lyon for a crucial Ligue 1 game.
