Neymar equalled a Champions League record last night that was first set by Lionel Messi - most completed dribbles in a game.

The Brazilian superstar shone as Paris Saint-Germain snatched a late victory against Atalanta to reach the semi-finals.

He looked head and shoulders above most players on the pitch and freely ran at Gian Piero Gasperini's side all night.

It means that he managed to register 16 completed dribbles - the same amount former teammate Messi reached against Manchester United back in 2008.

Neymar was a constant thorn in the Atalanta defence's side and his mesmerising dribbling had fans on the edge of their seats.

Twitter user @AliTactics compiled all of the 28-year-old's dribbles from last night in one video.

The French champions didn't have it all their own way however as Atalanta took a shock lead in the first half through Mario Pasalic.

Pasalic received the ball in the box and curled his shot past a helpless Keylor Navas.

Atalanta, who were making their first ever appearance in the competition, were forced to defend resolutely for the rest of the game.

Kylian Mbappe's introduction in the second half swung momentum in PSG's favour.

The Frenchman was only fit enough to come off the bench but his link up with Neymar was vital in PSG's comeback.

An equaliser came in the 90th minute when Neymar's ball into the box found Marquinhos who tapped home.

Moments later, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting popped up with a winner to shatter Atalanta hearts.

Choupo-Moting spoke following the tie and praised his side's mentality in a 'crazy game.'

"When I came on, I thought to myself, 'We can't lose, we can't go home like that,'" he said per Sky Sports.

"I was confident in myself, confident in the team and then the rest is the history of Paris. We had a good feeling in the team. We're enjoying good moments on and off the pitch.

"It was a crazy game, a tough game and opponents. I think we showed till the last moment that we believed in ourselves.

"It wasn't easy because we had some good occasions that unfortunately we couldn't score.

"We've already won four titles this season but the most important is this one. We really believe in ourselves and we did it today. Everybody knows we have top quality individuals, but we wanted to show it also as a team. It's a big step today against a very good opponent. Respect to Atalanta, but I'm very happy we did it."
