Edinson Cavani has confirmed that Neymar has is now the official penalty taker for the Ligue 1 leaders.

“The coach has decided that Neymar will take the next penalty,” Cavani said.
“We played a great game today. We knew we could put another two points between ourselves and Monaco.
“That meant we were super focused on getting this result tonight. We weren’t thinking about next weekend’s match against Monaco.
“We were purely focused on winning tonight.
“We want to keep winning. We have a lot of matches still to play this season.
“We are concentrating on improving, adding to our lead. I’m happy to score. It’s always great for a striker to score goals and help his team. I hope we continue like this.”
