Paris Saint-Germain cruised to a 5-2 win over Montpellier on Ligue 1 matchday two, but the match ended up being one filled with drama.
After missing his first penalty kick earlier in the fixture, Mbappe attempted to get the ball away from Neymar after PSG won a second penalty attempt. Neymar refused to do so, and he ended up scoring a penalty goal with relative ease.

According to Neymar’s Twitter activity after the match, he is not too pleased with the team’s penalty dilemma.

Neymar, Mbappe, and Lionel Messi all took crucial penalty kicks last season. Now with PSG manager Christophe Galtier in charge, it remains to be seen on how this matter will play out over the remainder of the campaign.
