"I think that with his quality and fitness, Neymar will become the best in the world."

Barcelona's Lionel Messi predicted big things for Neymar back in 2014 and based on Paris Saint-Germain's 8-0 thrashing of Dijon on Wednesday night, he was certainly on to something.

Neymar scored four as PSG ran riot at the Parc des Princes, with Angel Di Maria (2), Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe grabbing the other goals.

Dijon simply couldn't handle the Brazilian, who now has 24 goals in all competitions for the club he joined last summer in a world-record deal.

He's currently third in the Ligue 1 top goalscorer's charts behind teammate Cavani (2) and Radamel Falcao (16) on 15 league goals.

Neymar was so good that L'Equipe awarded him a 10/10 for his performance - something that has only happened seven times before.

An impressive highlights reel has now emerged from the game and it really is no wonder Neymar became the eighth player to get full marks from L'Equipe. He was absolutely outstanding.

Using his skill, pace and creativity, Neymar made Dijon's players look like amateurs to score four goals and also grab an assist. Check it out.


Despite fears Barcelona would struggle without Neymar, the Blaugrana don't seem to have missed him at all as they're currently top of La Liga and going strong in the Champions League.

But that doesn't mean Messi doesn't miss his former teammate. Last month, the Argentine admitted he hopes to cross paths with Neymar again some day.

"Well, Ney... I think we said practically everything to each other when you left," said Messi in a Christmas message to Neymar. "The truth is that here we are still missing you.

"We would like to keep sharing the mates (a South American hot drink) in the morning with Luis [Suarez] in the dressing room and many more things.

"Like always, I wish you the best wherever you are and I'm sure we will cross again on or off the pitch very soon. Take care of yourself."
