Paris Saint-Germain manager, Unai Emery has revealed that penalties will be shared between Neymar and Edinson Cavani in the club.

Emery said he had spoken with both players ahead of the Champions League Group B meeting with Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

Neymar and Cavani fought over a second-half penalty, which was ultimately saved by Anthony Lopes, in the 2-0 win over Lyon.

Emery told prematch conference ahead tomorrow’s Champions League, “Many of our players are capable [of taking penalties].

“Many of them also want to.

“Edinson and Neymar are ready. There will be plenty of penalties and both will benefit from that. I have spoken with both of them. I have told them how things will work from here.

“I have been on the other side, coming up against the biggest teams in Europe with the best players in the world.

“We have taken an important step and become one of these sides. We have more serious sporting enemies.

“The other teams can see that we mean business. There is real competition between PSG and the biggest teams. This is good for us.

“There will be 20 players training later and if everything goes well, there will still be 20 tomorrow. Neymar and Angel will be there.

“Javier [Pastore] is continuing his recovery. He is getting better. We hope that he will be ready to play as soon as possible.”
