Neymar Becomes PSG’s 4th Top-scorer Of All Time

Neymar of Brazil became Paris St-Germain’s fourth top-scorer to surpass the French Champions as they held on for a narrow win at home to Brest.

In 2017, Neymar moved from Barcelona to PSG for a record-breaking £200 million.

On PSG’s list of goal scorers, the 30-year-old scored his 110th goal to pass former Portuguese striker Pauleta.

Brest got a penalty on the 70th minute after PSG failed to extend their lead, but Gianluigi Donnarumma saved Islam Slimani’s weak attempt.

With the win, unbeaten PSG reclaimed first place in Ligue 1 from Lens.

After Lens defeated Troyes 1-0 at home on Friday, PSG and Marseille would be tied on points if Marseille defeated visiting Lille later in the day on Saturday.

Neymar scored his eighth goal this season from seven Ligue 1 games after Lionel Messi chipped the ball forward.

Before kicking with his left foot, the Brazilian striker touched the ball with his right foot.

Kylian Mbappe, a teammate of Neymar, ranks second with 180 goals, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is third with 156.

Neymar was tackled by Christophe Herelle, who was given a red card, but the decision was reversed when a review revealed that the PSG forward was offside prior to the contact.

Prior to and after the half, Messi and Mbappe missed opportunities, and they appeared to be about to pay for them when Presnel Kimpembe was fouled and awarded a penalty.

However, when a cross deflected off the shoulder of the Brest forward and toward goal, Donnarumma again produced a diving save to save Slimani.
