The FIFA World Cup exit must have been tough to digest for Neymar. Despite scoring a spectacular goal against Croatia, the Brazilian saw his country get knocked out via penalties. He didn’t even get to take his shot.

He has now been sent off upon his return to action with the club. PSG, meanwhile, remain at the top of the Ligue 1 table with 44 points from 16 games despite their draw. They have 42 points from 16 games and lead second-placed Lens by eight points, having played one more game.

The Parisians’ main focus this term will be securing their first-ever UEFA Champions League trophy. With Neymar, Messi, and Mbappe all in fine form, there is a great possibility for that to come into fruition.
