Neymar was seemingly confident that Barca would do the unthinkable against PSG last night, as reports from Spain have said that he made a bet with Barcelona teammates going into the game.
Barca were 4-0 down from the first leg and had a mountain to climb but goals from Luis Suarez, a bizarre own goal from Layvin Kurzawa and then a Lionel Messi penalty put them in a promising position.
However, when Edinson Cavani struck the vital away goal for PSG, things looked bleak again for PSG.
But they found it within themselves to find a further three goals in the dying minutes of the game to produce one of the greatest comebacks in football history.
And Neymar played centre stage - scoring a wonderful free-kick, a penalty and then supplying the assist for Sergi Roberto to send Barca fans and football fans in general into a frenzy with a dramatic 95th minute goal.
According to Spanish radio show Que t'hi jugues, Neymar made a bet with teammates that he would be on the scoresheet at least twice and that Barca would go through.
It's fair to say that his bet/prediction came true and Barcelona owe a lot to Neymar for his inspired individual display.
The Brazilian also broke the Champions League assist record in a single season last night with what was his eighth assist in the competition this season.
The record was introduced in the 2003/04 season when stats started to become a thing and now Neymar is in a league in his own after a gorgeous assist last night.
