Ever since his €222m move to Paris from Barcelona, Neymar has really been enjoying his football.

Aside from a publicised dispute with Edinson Cavani over a penalty awarded for the Parisians against Lyon, the Brazilian has been on fire, scoring and assisting like it's going out of fashion.

Against Bayern Munich, the mercurial forward was at the peak of powers, providing a sensational assist for Dani Alves and scoring the third goal in the 3-0 win.

The German side just could not handle him, with Neymar, Cavani and fellow summer signing Kylian Mbappe forging perhaps the most exciting front three seen since the early days of Barca's MSN.

In Ligue 1, the trio have been on fire and Bordeaux were the unlucky team to make the trip to the Parc des Princes and they were instantly punished by the Brazilian maestro.

PSG were awarded a free-kick a fairly sizeable distance away from the goal but that didn't faze Neymar.

He whipped the ball home in outrageous style, with the ball curling across almost the entire goal. Shades of his countryman Juninho.


Pretty ridiculous that, highlighting that he possesses immense prowess from set-pieces.

He actually had an argument with Cavani about taking a free-kick against Lyon, with Dani Alves actually handing the ball to his Brazilian colleague.

On this basis, Alves was correct to hand him the duty.


It's not the first time he's whipped in a free-kick this special, with Neymar scoring an absolute beauty for Barcelona against PSG in last season's ridiculous Champions League comeback at the Nou Camp.


Neymar has recently revealed that there is no rivalry between he and Cavani.

Speaking of the media, he said, per Sun: "They invent a lot of stories.


"They talk too much. They speak about things that they have no clue about.

"They try to infiltrate the dressing room and end up claiming things that do not exist."
