"However, we had better control in the second half, but this was a hard match, so the three points are important".

Paris - Footballers union FIFPro blasted "transfer market madness" Thursday, claiming Neymar's world record €222 million move from Barcelona to PSG illustrated how the sport has become "the domain of a select group of rich, mostly European-based clubs". The Argentine playmaker's influence was limited by a Saint-Etienne side playing with a five-man defence, but a controversial penalty decision allowed PSG to make the breakthrough 20 minutes in.
