Neymar has been on top of the social media trends since Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-1 Champions League win over Liverpool on Wednesday night. The Brazilian was in top shape, as he scored the crucial second goal which eventually turned out to be the winner against the English giants.
However, the highlight of the game was not PSG’s win, but a particular skill that Neymar pulled off in the course of the game. The 25-year-old first dazzled with an amazing piece of skill to nutmeg Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
He then followed up with an eye-catching skill to bamboozle two Liverpool players before he was cluttered down. Neymar took the ball on the left side of the penalty area and destroyed both Xherdan Shaqiri and Joe Gomez with an incredible rainbow flick.
Coming to the game itself, PSG dominated the Reds from start to finish to emerge 2-1 victors. Neymar got on the scoresheet, netting his 31st Champions League goal and becoming the Brazilian with the most goals in the competition, surpassing Kaka in the process.
The victory sees Paris Saint-Germain move above Liverpool to second spot with eights points on the board, ahead of traveling to Serbia on Match Day 6 to face Red Star Belgrade. Liverpool, meanwhile, need a result at Anfield against Napoli. Group C is going down to the wire.
