Paris Saint-Germain defeated Angers SCO at the Parc des Princes on Saturday in what was a brilliant performance from the league leaders. Each of PSG’s goals was spectacular in their own way but Neymar Jr.’s at the end of the match was especially satisfying.
Neymar spent most of the match dancing around defenders and pulling off unbelievable passes only to be eventually chopped down by an opponent with little protection from the official. He nearly scored a number of times, especially in the second half, but goalkeeper Ludovic Butel kept the Brazilian at bay until the 90th minute.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, who came on for Mauro Icardi in the 72nd minute, assisted Neymar for his fourth goal in five games this season for PSG. The goal was perfectly taken by Neymar. His first touch pushed the ball past Butel and Neymar rounded the keeper and calmly slotted the ball into the back of the net for PSG’s fourth and final goal on the night.
It was another fantastic 90 minutes from Neymar that supporters can hold onto throughout the upcoming international break as we wait for PSG to return to action on October 18 against OGC Nice where Neymar will be looking to add to his already impressive goal tally.
