Only Messi Ranks Above Neymar on This Impressive Champions League Goals List

Neymar made a bit of history during Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-1 UEFA Champions League away group stage win over Maccabi Haifa.

Neymar shined in the contest, and his work ended up paying off with a late goal to seal the victory for PSG, which kept the Ligue 1 powerhouse in first place in Champions League Group H.

The goal for Neymar was the 42nd of his Champions League career, which broke a tie with former Argentine forward Sergio Aguero on the all-time goals list in the competition’s history. More so, the Brazilian forward now only ranks behind Lionel Messi for the most Champions League goals scored ever by a South American player.

In the big picture, Neymar is currently tied with former Juventus forward Alessandro Del Piero for 15th on the all-time Champions League goals list with 42. The PSG star forward sure has what it takes to reach to soon reach 50 goals scored in the competition.

    Why Messi’s new record is not mentioned?
    If it’s not the Prima Donna ninja turtle it’s Neymar (or the other way around)…
    What the f… !!!!
    Messi (LITERALLY) is the best of the team.
    Without Messi the team would be nothing.
    Messi is “the brain” of PSG, yet the frigging news outlets, which are supposed to be “unbiased”, keep on writing about these other two guys.
    Yes, Neymar is back… but “thanks to whom?!”…
    Unbelievable!!!
