Video: Mbappé’s Brilliant Backheel Pass to Neymar for First CL Goal of the Season

In only their third start together this season for Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar Jr. linked up for one of the most spectacular goals you’ll ever see.

Early in the second half against Galatasaray SK, with PSG already up 2-0, Mbappé showcased some fancy footwork just outside of the box before cutting to the right and playing a backheel pass to an overlapping Neymar.

The Brazilian took a few touches before blasting his shot past Fernando Muslera to put PSG up 3-0.

The goal was Neymar’s first in the Champions League this season. He missed the first couple of matches due to a suspension and came on as a substitute against Real Madrid. This is also the first time this season that Neymar has scored in three consecutive matches for PSG this season.

Up 3-0 and already the winners of Group A in the UEFA Champions League, the result against Galatasaray means very little but it’s always great to see these two players linking up so brilliantly.
