Neymar became Brazil’s all-time leading scorer in the Champions League, his first half goal the eventual game winner in Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool in France.
Juan Bernat opened the scoring for the hosts, who earned a measure of revenge against the Reds, who beat them at Anfield earlier in the group stage. Neymar added the second before James Milner pulled one back from the penalty spot on the stroke of halftime.
PSG’s all-planet front line of Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani and Neymar combined for the decisive strike, with Neymar slotting home Cavani’s rebound after the Uruguayan was set up by World Cup winner Mbappe.
It was a crucial triumph for the Parisians, who moved past Liverpool into second place in Group C, just one point behind Napoli. The Reds will host the Italian side Dec. 11 on the final matchday of the first round, while PSG will travel to Serbia to face already-eliminated Red Star Belgrade.
