Neymar & Kylian Mbappe's telepahtic understanding reached a new level vs Anderlecht


After a summer of lavish spending, Unai Emery's Paris Saint-Germain side are certainly taking the footballing world by storm in the Champions League.

The Ligue 1 side have won their first three games, scoring 12 goals in the process, including a famous 3-0 win over Bayern Munich at the Parc des Princes.

On Wednesday evening, the Parisians made the trip to Brussels to face Anderlecht where, for the third time, they turned in an awesome display of attacking power.

The front three of Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe all found the back of the net, with Angel di Maria also scoring late on.

Cavani has been in sensational form this season, scoring 12 goals in 12 competitive games and his close-range header meant he has now scored in seven consecutive Champions League games.

As for Neymar and Mbappe, well, they are living proof that spending big can reap huge rewards.

The former arrived for €222m, while the latter will end up costing around €180m next summer after arriving initially on loan from Monaco, but at the moment, PSG will not care about that.

They look scary good and there was one point in the match when the enigmatic duo produced a stunning moment of telepathic understanding with one another.

Starting off virtually inside their own half, Neymar and Mbappe produce a series of perfectly executed one-twos, carving through the Anderlecht defence and setting up a chance for Cavani.


That is the definition of the beautiful game.

As a pairing, they are making football entertaining, while also doing the business as well.

Both of their goals from last night were taken very well, with Mbappe opening the scoring after just four minutes in Belgium, lashing a low shot through the goalkeeper's legs from a tight angle after a brilliant ball from Marco Verratti,


As for Neymar, he decided to implement some classic Brazilian technique learned from the one and only Ronaldinho, hitting a free-kick under the wall.


Not bad, not bad at all.

Many are predicting PSG to have a big say in this year's Champions League, alongside the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

The Ligue 1 title looks pretty much a certainty already, but getting their hands on Europe's biggest prize is the dream for the Qatari-owned club.
