Neymar matches incredible Messi Record in PSG win


Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar equalled an UEFA Champions League record set by Lionel Messi with his man of the match performance against Atalanta.

The Brazilian missed a host of chances during the large part of the game but was involved very much much to help PSG’s late comeback to beat the Series A side.

He also equalled Lionel Messi’s record of most dribbles a single Champions League after completing 16 attempts on Wednesday evening, as Opta pointed out.

Messi had set the incredible milestone in April 2008 in a game against Manchester United.

In comparison, the whole Atalanta squad only manged to complete six dribbles against PSG on Wednesday.
