Despite his exploits going forward, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel admitted he was disappointed with the amount of defending Neymar did.
"He did too much defensively in the first half," he told reporters per Goal.
"I wanted him to play like a 10, but he played as an 8.
"That didn't stop him from having a great game. In general, we had a good first half. We created a lot of chances, but we missed too many.
"We have to kill the game after 20 minutes. It must be three or 4-0. I'm not happy with the second half. It was not serious enough, aggressive and intense."
Tuchel went on to reveal the Brazilian could be carrying a calf problem that doctors need to check out.
"I thought it was a hit, but maybe not. I don't know yet, I need to speak with the doctors."
PSG are currently seventh in Ligue 1 and have won three games in a row, after opening their domestic campaign with two defeats.
