Having lost their opening group stage match 3-2 at Anfield against Liverpool a fortnight ago, it was absolutely essential that the French champions collected three points this evening against their Serbian opponents.
And it took them less than 20 minutes to open the scoring – and, boy, it was worth waiting for, as the Brazilian superstar expertly wrapped his mercurial right foot around the ball and sent it sailing high into the top corner:
Beautiful from Neymar 😍

As if that wasn’t enough, Neymar added to his account just two minutes later, and PSG were 4-0 ahead by half-time, sending a message out to the rest of the continent that they really do mean business this season.
What do you think of the goal, and how far can PSG go in the competition this season?
