Lionel Messi and Neymar were booed by some Paris Saint-Germain fans during the first half of Sunday’s Ligue 1 match with Bordeaux. Supporters made their displeasure clear towards the star duo following the Champions League exit to Real Madrid this week.
Neymar set up Kylian Mbappe to score at the Santiago Bernabeu and give PSG a 2-0 aggregate lead, but a collapse during the final half-hour saw Madrid triumph 3-1 in the last-16 second leg and 3-2 in the tie thanks to Karim Benzema’s hat-trick.
Neither Messi nor Neymar was able to inspire PSG to a comeback as Mauricio Pochettino’s side failed once more in their quest to win Europe’s biggest prize.
The defeat prompted further speculation over the future of Mbappe and, according to some reports in Spain, the France star has now signed an agreement to join Madrid on a free transfer at the end of the season.
However, Mbappe’s early touches against Bordeaux were generally met with cheers from the home fans and it was his strike that gave them the lead 24 minutes in after Messi found Georginio Wijnaldum.
