Champions League: Neymar Breaks World Record As PSG Secures a 2-1 Win Against Liverpool

Neymar became the top-scoring Brazilian player in Champions League history as Paris Saint-Germain beat Liverpool on Wednesday night.




Juan Bernat fired PSG in front at Parc des Princes, before Neymar doubled the home side’s advantage ten minutes before half-time.

The former Barcelona star’s goal – his 31st in the competition – saw him become Brazil’s all-time leading goalscorer in the Champions League.

AC Milan legend Kaka previously held the record, having netted 30 times in the competition. Despite being outplayed by French champions PSG in the opening 45 minutes, Premier League giants Liverpool were offered a repireve before the break after Sadio Mane was brought down in the box by Angel Di Maria.



James Milner slotted home the subsequent penalty to reduce Liverpool’s deficit, but they were unable to find an equaliser after half-time as PSG secured a 2-1 win.

The result means Liverpool stay third in Group C, with Napoli top and PSG sitting second ahead of the final group match.

Liverpool face Merseyside rivals Everton in the Premier League this weekend.
