Neymar has been left out of Paris Saint-German’s squad for their Ligue 1 clash with Montpellier this weekend.
The Samba sensation was involved in a bust-up with Edinson Cavani over which of them took a penalty in the 2-0 win over Lyon last weekend.

Boss Unai Emery later revealed that Cavani was his first-choice spot-kick taker.
Neymar has reportedly apologised to the Uruguayan striker and the rest of his team-mates over the row, with Dani Alves taking the squad out to dinner for clear the air talks.
Now, according to reports in France, he has been ruled out of the Montpellier clash with a minor foot injury – that’s despite training yesterday.
Cavani and Neymar were both snapped on the PSG training paddock as the feuding South American duo tried to put their differences behind them
Emery later tried to play down the pair’s problems.
The Spaniard said: “”The two players who will be taking the penalties are Cavani and Neymar.
“(That is) because they’re capable of assuming this responsibility, but other players can take them.
“During training we practice penalties because when the decisive moment arrives and we can win a title with penalties, we will need more than two.
“Last year, the penalty taker was Cavani, this year with the arrival of Neymar there are two. Who is number one and who is number two, I will make that decision.”
Romelu Lukaku or Sergio Aguero? Why not both?
