Neymar's Highlights Show How Good He Was Vs Manchester United
Neymar made a big difference as PSG beat Manchester United in the Champions League on Wednesday night, and his personal highlights reel show exactly how good he was.
It was a huge night at Old Trafford on Wednesday, with both sides eager for the points to help them qualify from this season's Champions League's 'group of death.'
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side needed only a draw to go through but it was PSG who came away with all the points, thanks to Neymar's excellent display.
In Paris earlier this season United's defence martialed the Brazilian well but in Manchester it was a completely different story as he scored twice in the 3-1 win and generally caused panic in the United defence.
In the first encounter between the two sides United played with a back five to start the game and, other than a couple of early scares, it worked brilliantly.
On Wednesday Solskjaer started with four at the back and once again Thomas Tuchel's side had lots of early success and Neymar put them ahead in the sixth minute.

The hosts grew into the game and, whilst they certainly had some luck in the goal, deserved their equaliser through Marcus Rashford around the half hour mark.
United had chances to go ahead through Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani, the latter unlucky not to score a glorious chip against his former side, before it all started to unravel.
It looks as though Fred is a very lucky boy :eyes:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) December 2, 2020
He appeared to move his head towards Paredes off the ball, the referee took a closer look, and gave a yellow card :warning:

Marquinhos scored a nice goal in the 69th minute to put the French champions ahead and a minute later Fred, who was extremely lucky not to be sent off in the first half, was somehow unlucky to actually be sent off, although it was a shock to everyone he hadn't been subbed off at half-time to avoid such a situation.
Neymar then wrapped up the victory with a goal on the counter in injury time, as United hunted down a much needed equaliser.
The loss for United means they must get a draw in Germany next weekend against RB Leipzig and look in danger of missing out on the knockout stages despite winning their opening two games of the group.
Neymar and Tuchel's side may only need a draw against Istanbul Basaksehir to go through.
