Angry Neymar blasts ref's "lack of respect" in PSG-Napoli game

Angry Neymar blasts ref's

Kylian Mbappe set up Juan Bernat to put Paris ahead just before the break, but Lorenzo Insigne beat Gianluigi Buffon from the penalty spot in the second half as these sides played out a draw for the second time in a fortnight.

Napoli move level on points with second-placed Liverpool, who suffered a shock 2-0 defeat by Red Star Belgrade.

" I do not want to repeat what he said to me".

PSG sit third on five points, while the Serbian team are one behind on four points after their win over Liverpool.

"But I'm confident because we're improving and each draw for us sends an important message".

Liverpool were strong favourites away to Red Star in Serbia, but Jurgen Klopp's team were poor in a 2-0 defeat to the 1991 European Cup winners.

"The coach is doing a very good job, I am very happy".

In what was captain Marek Hamsik's record 512th appearance for Napoli, former teammate Edinson Cavani played only a cameo role after replacing Angel Di Maria for the final quarter-hour.


Last night's result was particularly irritating for Neymar.

Ernesto Valverde's team had to wait until the 83rd minute to break the deadlock through summer signing, Malcom.

Milan Pavkov scored twice in seven first-half minutes, heading in the opener and then beating Alisson with a powerful strike from range, to the delight of a huge home support.

But Napoli's fans were in despair moments later courtesy of more Mbappe magic.

The Spaniard took a touch and, as he fell to the turf, swiped with his right foot to stun Ospina.

His sweeping shot was palmed away before a lobbed effort was tipped inches over the bar.

Napoli fans were further frustrated when former Juventus legend Buffon stood his ground to parry Fabian Ruiz's first-timer following Mertens' cross. Thomas Tuchel's side defeated second-place Lille 2-1 despite being without Edison Cavani, who is nursing a hamstring injury.
