Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain registered their eighth win in as many matches this season as they beat Montpellier at their home in Parc de Prices. It was Idrissa Gueye who opened the scoring after 14 minutes with a brilliant strike from outside the box.
The Mauricio Pochettino-managed side then sealed the win in the 89th minute as Neymar set up the second goal of the match netted by Julian Draxler. It was Draxler's first proper touch of the match after he replaced Angel Di Maria a minute before.
Much like Di Maria, even Kylian Mbappe was substituted and it was Mauro Icardi who replaced him on the field. The cameras focused on Mbappe moments after Draxler had found the back of the net.
Footage going viral on the internet catches Mbappe complaining about Neymar as he said, "He [Neymar] does not give me that pass." The same has been confirmed in RMC Sport report.
While PSG have won all their Ligue 1 matches so far, it appears that there is some kind of rift between Neymar and Mbappe. If Mbappe indeed has had a clash with Neymar, it would not be the first time that he had a fallout with a teammate.

Earlier, the PSG man has already had a clash with Oliver Giroud. The incident is not pretty old and happened during the Euro 2020 competition. However, it could just be an observation based on the match and the fact that he was frustrated on being substituted.
Whatever be the reason, the incident is set to send shock waves around the football circuit and Brazilian star Neymar wouldn't be too pleased with it either.
The win over Montpellier has helped PSG take a 10-point lead in Ligue 1 and they look like the runaway favourites to win the title back this season. Their next fixture is against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
The French giants had reached the final of the European competition last year but were the second-best against Bayern Munich who had a dream run last season and won the Champions Ligue finale 1-0.
