Neymar Is Officially Back After Producing Filthy Nutmeg Before Scoring Scintillating Goal For PSG

Neymar capped off a high-scoring Paris Saint-Germain in stunning style with the goal of the game in a 5-1 thrashing of Lorient.

For the first time this season, the trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar were all on the scoresheet for Mauricio Pochettino's side.


Mbappe and Neymar both bagged braces, while Messi bagged just his third goal in Ligue One.

Neymar had opened the scoring in the 12th minute but it was his second strike which completed the rout that really caught the eye.

The 30-year-old started the move in his own half and with that unique swagger he has, produced an insane nutmeg.

Fabien Lemoine had literally just come onto the pitch as an 89th mine substitute and his first action was getting rinsed by Neymar, who put the ball through his legs with two gorgeous touches.

Neymar then advanced up the pitch and passed to Mbappe but continued his run towards his goal.

Mbappe found his teammate with a wonderful through ball and Neymar provided the clinical assist to secure himself a double - and a hat-trick of assists for his colleague.

Neymar started and finished the move exquisitely and fans were salivating over his skill:

PSG are 12 points clear of second-placed Marseille at the top of Ligue One and are on the verge of regaining the title after Lille pipped them.

However the major disappointment at the Parc des Princes was the Champions League round of 16 exit at the hands of Real Madrid.
