This evening, PSG did not play the best game of their season. But the Parisians still won against Brest (1-0). The only goal of the game was scored by Neymar on an assist from Lionel Messi. With this achievement, he alone regains the lead in the ranking of top scorers in Ligue 1 with eight achievements and overtakes Pedro Miguel Pauleta – with 110 goals – in the hierarchy of top scorers in the history of the Rouge & Bleu. At a press conference, Christophe Galtier praised his number 10 who made a great start to the season with 10 goals and 7 assists in 9 matches.

Both on a personal level but also for his partners and for the interest of the team. He is a great professional. I knew he was a great player but he is a great professional whom I discover with pleasure every day.. »
