Neymar's absence provides Di Maria a chance to continue shining for PSG

Unai Emery says he's 'clear' in deciding who will take penalties for PSG, but won't disclose whether it's Edinson Cavani or Neymar.

PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain can move 12 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 on Sunday if they manage to beat Lyon at Groupama Stadium without injured superstar Neymar.

Bruno Genesio's men were second in Le Championnat prior to Marseille's win away at Caen on Friday, so PSG know that a 12-point lead over bitter rivals OM is possible if they can get the business done in Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes.

Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar -- MCN -- have been back together lately and scoring goals, but...

Neymar proves PSG are playing by his rules -- at Cavani's expense

The ESPN FC boys talk Neymar's decision to take a penalty ahead of Edinson Cavani, who had the opportunity to break Zlatan Ibrahimovic's PSG scoring record.

PARIS -- Before anything is said about Paris Saint-Germain's late penalty in Wednesday's 8-0 Ligue 1 win over Dijon at Parc des Princes, Neymar deserves praise -- lots of it. The Brazilian superstar was thoroughly unplayable, scoring four goals -- including a delightful lofted free kick and a superb solo effort -- and assisting two more in a merciless performance.

The French capital outfit will be dreaming over the next few weeks about him replicating that sort of form at the Santiago Bernabeu...

Neymar nets four goals for PSG but quarrels with Edinson Cavani

Paris Saint-Germain's full arsenal was on display against Dijon with Neymar, Cavani, Mbappe and Di Maria all getting on the scoresheet.
Neymar netted his first hat trick for Paris Saint-Germain in style and then added a penalty for good measure.
Despite a four-goal performance, Craig Burley says Neymar is asking for trouble with his goal celebrations and drawing the ire from his own supporters.

PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain remain 11 points clear at the top of Ligue 1 after annihilating Dijon 8-0 at Parc des Princes on Wednesday.

Neymar starred with four goals and two assists as the French capital outfit racked up their heaviest ever home win across all competitions.

The Brazilian superstar was joined by Angel Di Maria (two), Edinson Cavani (an all-time joint-record 156th goal) and Kylian Mbappe on the score sheet.

Dimitri Payet literally injures goalkeeper with devastating dummy

Marseille's Dimitri Payet's dummy sent the Strasbourg keeper Alexandre Oukidja the wrong way, injuring his knee as Payet tapped the ball into an empty net.

Marseille racked up a routine 2-0 win over Strasbourg in the Ligue 1 on Tuesday night with Dimitri Payet rounding out the scoring in the last few minutes.

Indeed, Payet's goal was notable for the fact that the former West Ham star quite literally left Strasbourg goalkeeper Alexandre Oukidja with injured ankles after foxing him with a truly outrageous body swerve.

Sent clean through on goal, Payet darted past the advancing Oukidja with a feint so devastating that the 29-year-old goalkeeper had to...

Giovani Lo Celso should continue his midfield apprenticeship vs. Dijon

Angel Di Maria scored the lone goal in PSG's win at Nantes, but his moment could be overshadowed by a strange move by the referee.
PSG coach Unai Emery feels the Spanish media is attempting to 'destabilise' his squad by reporting that Neymar is heading to Real Madrid.

PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain host Dijon in Ligue 1 on Wednesday with the chance to pull further clear of the chasing pack after Monaco dropped further points at home to Nice on Tuesday.

Lyon could remain within 11 points of the French capital outfit if they can win away at Guingamp, but PSG's current lead is arguably already unassailable.

Coach Unai Emery has Neymar back in his squad but is without Thiago Motta, which means that either Adrien Rabiot or Giovani Lo Celso will start in defensive midfield,...

Signs point to Emery being let go by PSG before next season

PSG coach Unai Emery feels the Spanish media is attempting to 'destabilise' his squad by reporting that Neymar is heading to Real Madrid.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Alexis Nunes tackle the latest transfer rumours surrounding N'Golo Kante, Andy Carroll, Cristiano Ronaldo and more.

On paper, it is pretty straightforward and simple: If Unai Emery wants to stay for a third season at Paris Saint-Germain, his team will have to reach the semifinal of the Champions League. A clause in his contract states that, if the Parisians get to the last four then the option of a third year will be automatically triggered. If they don't, he is out.

However, PSG don't really follow contract terms or options; it is almost like they don't mean much to them. They sacked Antoine Kombouare in December...
