Neymar clashes with the fourth referee
Behind, it’s Neymar’s turn to hang on with the fourth referee. When greeting him, the Brazilian hides his mouth and has a word for the official, who doesn’t seem to like it at all. The fourth referee then holds the hand of the Parisian, who gets away in a virulent way before giving a thumbs-up, as if to ironically congratulate the referee for his performance.
Luisao reasoned by Sergio Ramos
Thirdly, it is Luisao, a former Benfica player now in the Lisbon staff, who appears quite annoyed on the screen. The Portuguese is first repelled by Hakimi before slipping a note into Neymar’s ear. Still very upset, Luisao was finally dismissed by Sergio Ramos, who tried to reason with him.
During the meeting, the spirits were particularly heated after a big sole of Enzo Fernandez on Marco Verratti just before the break. Furious to see his opponent only warned of a yellow card, the Italian exchanged several sweet words with the Benfica bench before returning to the locker room in a stormy atmosphere, notably having to be held back by Parisian staff members.
