The German side, having gone 1-0 up through Christopher Nkunku in the Champions League clash, missed a golden chance to extend their lead in the first half when Andre Silva saw his penalty saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.
They were made to rue the miss as Georginio Wijnaldum struck twice - his first goals for this new club - to complete the turnaround in the opening 45 minutes.
But just when PSG looked like they were heading for a big away win in Group A, Presnel Kimpembe made the most ridiculous challenge on Nkunku inside the area and Leipzig were awarded a second spot-kick following a lengthy VAR check.
This time Szoboszlai grabbed the ball. The Hungarian was subjected to some classic mind games, with Neymar trying to get in his head.
It didn't work though as Szoboszlai made no mistake from 12 yards in the 92nd minute. Donnarumma guessed right but the power and placement was perfect and Leipzig collected their first point of the European campaign.
After the game, Szoboszlai revealed his exchange with Neymar and it speaks volumes of the confidence he has aged just 21.
When Neymar asked him if he was "sure" he was going to score, Szoboszlai replied, "I never miss” - and he wasn't lying.

Had to wait a while at the spot , had Neymar trying to flirt with him then calmy stepped up and scored the penalty.
This guy is so good .
Neymar was asking Szoboszlai which way he was shooting instead of arguing with the ref about the call tryna make him second guess 😭😭😭— 𝘥𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘪𝘯𝘩𝘰 (@EDBculer) November 3, 2021

Prior to the game and their subsequent chat, Szoboszlai had talked up Neymar and how he plays the game.
Szoboszlai "If I had to choose one, I'd say Neymar. Of course Mbappé Messi and Di Maria are also really good players and legends but I choose Neymar because this type, how he plays I love it.. I already said it before when I had an interview, I'd take him" pic.twitter.com/B3ngBbToab— Neymar Jr. & Kylian Mbappé (@voguekylian) November 3, 2021
Szoboszlai joined Leipzig from sister club Red Bull Salzburg, where he was crowned the Austrian Bundesliga's player of the season for 2019/20 after hitting 9 goals and 14 assists in 27 league matches.
A persistent adductor injury meant the €20 million man didn't make his debut with Leipzig until August this year despite joining in January but already he's demonstrated his qualities with six goals and three assists.
