Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar was a standout performer in his side’s UEFA Champions League home group stage win over Juventus. Neymar was a key playmaker in the contest, logging an assist to go along with four goal-scoring chances created during his time on the pitch.

Neymar’s assist during the match came on a keen pass he dished off to Kylian Mbappe in the early stages of the fixture, as the French forward ended up scoring a volley goal for PSG’s first goal of the new Champions League season.

Overall, this assist for the Brazilian forward was the 32nd of his Champions League career, which broke a tie with former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs for sole possession of fourth place for the most assists in the competition’s history. More so, he is now four assists away from moving into a tie with Lionel Messi for the second most assists ever recorded in the Champions League.

Neymar sure continues to leave a stout legacy in Champions League play.
