VIDEO: Neymar goes to take PSG penalty — but Cavani waves him off!
Neymar may have cost €222 million, but that doesn't mean he's entitled to take Paris Saint-Germain's penalties.
The Brazilian star walked up to the spot after PSG earned a spot-kick in the 78th minute of Sunday's Ligue 1 match against Lyon, with Unai Emery's side protecting a 1-0 lead.
But Edinson Cavani had gotten there first, and the Uruguayan striker waved off Neymar before seeing his effort denied by Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes.

That set piece wasn't the only point of contention for the PSG team-mates on Sunday. Earlier in the match, Cavani had his eyes on a dangerous free-kick before Dani Alves took the ball and made sure it ended up in the hands of his long-time friend Neymar.

For all of the apparent infighting, PSG still emerged with three points as a pair of late own goals led the Ligue 1 pace-setters to a 2-0 win.
