In his return from injury, Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar picked up just where he left off.
After PSG won a penalty call, Neymar stepped up to the plate to sink the attempt to essentially clinch the Trophee des Champions final win for the club.
The call for a penalty was almost thwarted after the match official went over to further examine Olympique de Marseille goalkeeper Yohann Pele’s foul on Mauro Icardi. But in the end, VAR granted the penalty call, to which Neymar calmly scored the game-clincher.
