Video: Neymar’s Cheeky Chip Double’s PSG’s Lead Over Saint-Étienne

Down a man and a goal, AS Saint-Étienne tried to make it to halftime with minimal damage but Neymar Jr. was having none of it.

Wesley Fofana picked up a second yellow and was dismissed leaving Les Verts with 10 players to deal with a PSG attack that consisted of Angel Di Maria, Mauro Icardi, Kylian Mbappé, and Neymar Jr.

Icardi opened up the scoring just two minutes into the match and in the 39th minute, Neymar doubled the hosts lead.

In the space left by Fofana, the Brazilian ran towards goal and Di Maria played a sublime through ball. Neymar was able to stutter-step to stay onside and instead of passing the ball into the back of the net, he went for the spectacular and chipped the goalkeeper.

The goal put PSG up 2-0 and with a man advantage, you have to imagine that a place in the semi-finals of the Coupe de la Ligue is an almost certainty even with 45 minutes left to play.
