Neymar Transforms Into Football's Ultimate Playmaker With One Touch Cross-Field Assist
Paris Saint-Germain currently lead Bayern Munich 2-1 in the Champions League and a highlight is Neymar's incredible cross-field assist for Marquinhos.
Mauricio Pochettino's side arrived in Germany for this evening's quarter-final clash looking to avenge their defeat in last season's final.
They took the lead early on thanks to Kylian Mbappe's strike - but the real highlight came from Neymar's playmaking ability.
Bayern managed to clear the ball and it bounced to Neymar, who whipped it back into the box first time.
Neymar is shining in the snow, what an assist to Marquinhos.. :fire: #BAYPSG

Marquinhos then calmly slotted home past Neuer to give double his side's advantage.
The defender did go off injured not long after to be replaced by Ander Herrera but it wasn't without a valuable contribution.
Neymar also provided the assist for Mbappe's strike and he's shining in the Bavarian snow this evening.
Fans have reacted to his performance and they believe he's one of the best around in this form.

Mbappe opened the scoring inside three minutes after his shot proved too powerful for Neuer.
Marquinhos added the second to give the away side a commanding lead, despite Bayern's dominance going forward.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting pulled one back just before half-time in a game which has also seen Bayern make two first half substitutes.
Leon Goretzka was replaced by Alphonso Davies and Niklas Sule made way for Jerome Boateng.
