still brilliant, Neymar joins Pauleta in PSG history

Author of the first goal of PSG in Toulouse this Wednesday, the Brazilian brought his total to 109 achievements since he played in the capital.

He walks on water. Author of his seventh goal since the start of the season on Wednesday evening on the lawn of Toulouse, Neymar joined the Portuguese Pedro Pauleta in fourth place among the top scorers in Paris with 109 goals scored for PSG. The numbers are dizzying: seven goals and six assists in five games since the start of the season. 109 in 150 games with the Parisian tunic since joining Paris in the summer of 2017!

Decisive during each of his outings for a month, Neymar confirmed his hot summer by opening the scoring against a Toulouse team which had nevertheless resisted perfectly until then. After the first of Messi’s two assists in the match, the Seleçao playmaker fired a right shot deceiving a helpless Dupe on the spot (38th). A goal finally granted after watching the video which did not prevent the Brazilian from celebrating it with dignity in the company of his teammates and in particular Kylian Mbappé with whom he displayed a great bond throughout the meeting.

Stirring and inspired

Neymar then distinguished himself in the second half with a dangerous shot close to the post (53rd). Stirring, available on his left side as in the heart of the game, he made many differences with the ball at his foot like on this strike on the bar of Mbappé (64th) after a delicious shift from his partner. Replaced in the 68th minute by the young Hugo Ekitike, Neymar did not seem happy to give up his place but no doubt Christophe Galtier does not want to take any risks with his strategist.

Less than a week before the reception of Juventus Turin for its debut in the Champions League, PSG knows that it cannot do without its Brazilian artist. And we can imagine that the latter, who had finished the last European campaign without the slightest goal, will be keen to make people forget this sad statistic.
