Paris Saint-Germain's French forward Kylian Mbappe reacts during their French Ligue 1 match against Montpellier

Cavani and Neymar clashed on the pitch recently over who was going to take a penalty in their 2-0 win over Lyon earlier this month. There will be plenty of penalties and both will benefit from that. To add to it, the fans of the club are now anxious more than ever, as a latest Instagram post by Kylian Mbappe has revealed something they would not like to see. "I will be grateful for the rest of my life for the chance he has given me", the Italian worldwide, nicknamed the "Little Owl", said at the time. That's why we have more enemies now. The other teams see that we are serious. "This is good for us".

The reported reason for the friction between Paris Saint-Germain new boy Neymar and Edinson Cavani has been revealed.

All eyes will be on that duo if PSG win a spot-kick against the German champions, with Emery refusing to designate a first-choice penalty taker.

"Javier [Pastore] is continuing his recovery. They can see that this team is serious, and that with the players we bought this year and in the previous years, we have made a step forward to win the Champions League".

Fondly referred to as JJ, the skilful player said he felt glad being among the best during his active soccer days.

"Julian is an important player", he said.

They are yet to progress beyond the quarter-finals in that time and bowed out in the round of 16 last season after capitulating 6-1 away to Barcelona to lose the tie 6-5 on aggregate.

"It is true that we didn t start at the top but it s only the beginning of the season. He can help us as a starter or a substitute".

Kimmich has been a regular in Bayern's starting XI under Carlo Ancelotti early in 2017-18.

"Five years ago, things were different here", Verratti said. "I had just left the Italian second division and he helped me a lot". He gave the club added experience. He helped to launch this project. "I played often under him".

Wednesday's opponents Bayern have been critics of the French side too.
