Neymar goal for PSG v Liverpool makes him Brazil's top Champions League scorer (PHOTOS)
Neymar struck in the 37th minute at the Parc des Princes after tucking home a rebound from an Edinson Cavani shot following a blistering team move involving the Brazilian and French teen sensation Kylian Mbappe.
The strike from the PSG number 10 was his 31st in the Champions League proper – taking him one ahead of retired attacking midfield great Kaka and four clear of former Barcelona star Rivaldo.
It was the 26-year-old Brazilian’s 10th in the competition for PSG – with the others coming for former club Barcelona.
He's reached the mark in just 52 Champions League games - 34 fewer than Kaka - and also has 22 assists in the competition.
More importantly on the night, the goal added to Juan Bernat's opener and gave PSG a two-goal cushion as they sought to overtake Liverpool in second spot in a tight Group C.
Liverpool’s James Milner pulled one back for the Reds just before half-time to give them hope heading into the second period in Paris, but PSG closed out the win to put them in the driving seat for last 16 qualification.
