Neymar Won A Bet He Made With Barca Teammates Before PSG Second Leg

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.
