Neymar became the first Paris Saint-Germain player to score a direct free kick and a penalty in the same game since Nenê did it against Rennes in 2012, as the Paris giants ran riot against Bordeaux at home.
This time, there was no question who would take the free kick in the 5th minute, and who would take the penalty later in the first half, unlike the… rather ridiculous scene seen in PSG’s home game against Lyon recently, when Neymar and Edinson Cavani had a ‘civilized quarrel’ over the ball on two occasions.
Actually, Cavani was the first one Neymar went to after scoring from the penalty spot, showing him with his fingers, and giving him a hug.
As for PSG’s overall display, Unai Emery didn’t downplay the fact that his team scored six goals and picked up all three points, but he did have a few things to say about conceding twice at home.
It’s hard to say it was perfect. Of course, I’m happy with the result, happy with the match and overall performance of the players but we conceded two home goals. That, I liked less
the Spaniard said, after PSG’s emphatic 6-2 win at Parc des Princes, over a team who were undefeated in the Ligue 1 until this weekend.
