Neymar and Kylian Mbappe combined in stunning fashion to open the scoring early on for Paris Saint-Germain during this evening’s Champions League clash with Juventus.
The star duo needed less than five minutes to carve open the visitors’ defence at Parc des Princes, with Neymar acting as provider and Mbappe supplying the unerring finish.
The Brazilian lifted an audacious pass over the defence for his strike partner, who watched the ball drop over his shoulder before unleashing a first-time volley past the keeper.
Mbappe had been forced to respond to questions about his relationship with Neymar in the buildup to the match, following renewed claims that the pair had fallen out.
However, they showed no sign of any ill-feeling with their link-up play – the first of two Mbappe goals in the first half in the French capital.
Does this count as a ‘stop that’ tweet?
