Neymar slams reports of Cavani rift

Chelsea, Bayern, PSG, Spurs: Champions League Winners & Losers [Week 2]

Edinson Cavani and Neymar both scored as Paris Saint-Germain claimed a convincing 3-0 victory over a disappointing Bayern Munich in their heavyweight Champions League clash in the French capital on Wednesday.

Bayern sit second in Group B, level on points with Celtic, who the Bundesliga champions will face on matchdays 3 and 4.

"I think what we saw this evening [Wednesday] was not Bayern Munich".

The game was nearly put beyond Bayern when Mbappe crossed to Neymar and the Brazilian played an audacious back-heel to Cavani, but his low drive was saved by Ulreich, who kept the contest alive with an outstretched foot.

This time there were no such disputes, and both men could celebrate contributing to the final outcome. "It was a tactical decision (to leave Robben and Ribery out)", Ancelotti told a news conference.

Oberlin set the tone as the driving force for two first-half goals that finished end-to-end moves he started from Basel's penalty area.

Mbappe joined PSG on loan from Monaco in the summer with a view to a €180m (£160m) deal next summer.

Neymar was allowed to cut in from the left before picking out Alves, who arrived unmarked in the area to take a touch and finish past Sven Ulreich, standing in for the injured Manuel Neuer in the Bayern goal.

Javi Martinez bent a fierce shot towards goal from the edge of the box with the outside of his right foot, drawing an acrobatic one-handed save from Alphonse Areola as the visitor began to attack with its trademark intensity.

The suspicion before kickoff had been that PSG, bolstered by the signings of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, may be ready to challenge for the Champions League this season, while Bayern may have slipped backwards, but the gulf between the sides was shocking.

Bayern were stunned, and a combination of the "MCN" then nearly brought a third, with Neymar laying off Mbappe's pass for Cavani, whose effort was saved.

Yet another four-goal display from Manchester United this season seemed nearly routine as Jose Mourinho's team won 4-1 at CSKA Moscow.

PSG will be looking to make their home advantage count as they seek to gain all three points from this match, while Bayern will be hoping they can return to Germany with at least a point from this tricky contest.
