Neymar Broke Lionel Messi's Champions League Record, Last Night

There's not much more that can be said about Neymar's match winning heroics against Paris Saint-Germain, last night. The Brazilian himself even predicted what he was going to do ahead of Barcelona's record breaking comeback and, in the process, broke a record himself.

In lofting THAT last second through ball onto the outstretched toe of Sergi Roberto, last night, the former Brazil captain broke Lionel Messi's record for assists recorded in a single Champions League campaign, with eight successful assists, this season.

Neymar equalled his Argentine teammate's record during Barca's final group game, against Celtic, although it would be his eighth that would prove to be significantly more important.

Neymar's journey to the assists record began against Celtic during a 7-0 demolition of Brendan Rodgers' team in September, laying on four of the goals, that night.

It'll be a long time before the Brazilian produces anything close to the heroics of last night against the French champions, last night, though. He even made Michael Owen rediscover his running boots for the first time since 1998.

As if destroying the hopes and dreams of Unai Emery and his team wasn't enough for Neymar, last night, he also decided to indulge in a spot of trolling, reminding everyone, not so subtly, of PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot's post following the French champions' 4-0 first leg victory in Paris, three weeks ago.
