Paris Saint-Germain was unable to win this Sunday against Monaco and the match ended with a score of 1-1, which means slowing down its excellent start to the season as it achieved 3 consecutive sweeping victories in the league and crowned the French Super Cup against Nantes.
The Parisians were late by a goal and would have been on the verge of losing had it not been for a penalty kick by Neymar. The Brazilian was brought down in the area by Maripan and did not hesitate to take the penalty in front of Kylian Mbappe’s eyes.
With less than 85 days to go before the World Cup kicks off in Qatar, Neymar is making his best start since wearing the Paris Saint-Germain shirt. His numbers are improving with every game and his attacking participation is superior to that of any other teammate. Neither Messi nor Mbappe can match him.
The Brazilian started this season like a rocket knowing that the World Cup is around the corner and that the owner of the number ten shirt in Brazil wants to play a good role with his team in order to achieve the sixth World Cup for his country.
Paris Saint-Germain did not take all three points against Monaco, but they witnessed another goal from Neymar in the French Ligue 1. The former Barcelona player participated in 12 goals in the first four rounds of the French League, and this boils down to scoring six goals and six assists, in addition to two goals he scored in the French Super Cup, for a total of eight goals in all competitions.
According to SofaScore, the left winger needs 32 minutes to score or assist a teammate and has an accuracy of 82%. Despite being an offensive player, he also knows how to retrieve the ball and this is reflected in the 53% of the duels he has won so far. He even created nine opportunities to score and only one chance was missed.
Neymar’s season has completely changed in a few weeks due to his fantastic start to the season. What seemed like a countdown to seeing him leave the Parisian team through the back door, added to the internal war with Mbappe, who is currently the best player in Paris Saint-Germain.
There is no doubt that his numbers represent a blow to coach Christophe Galtier and the management of the Parisian team under the leadership of Nasser Al-Khelaifi. The Brazilian wants to succeed this year with his club and above all with Brazil.
