Neymar revelled in Paris Saint-Germain’s late victory against Lyon as the Ligue 1 giants preserved their perfect start to the season.
Lionel Messi made his home debut in PSG’s 2-1 win over Lyon, who succumbed to Mauro Icardi’s 93rd-minute goal on Sunday.
Neymar had restored parity with his 66th-minute penalty, cancelling out Lucas Paqueta’s second-half opener, before Icardi came off the bench to secure PSG’s sixth league win from six matches.
PSG star Neymar has scored 71 per cent of his Ligue 1 goals in 2021 from the penalty spot – the highest ratio among all players with five-plus goals in the top-flight over the period.
Since his first season with PSG in 2017-18, this is the sixth time the Brazilian won and scored a penalty in the same Ligue 1 game, more than any other player over the period.
