The PSG match should have been played yesterday but was suspended due to the alleged racial insult between a referee and a member of the Turkish team. PSG joined the protest and agreed to suspend the match and play it with new referees. In the resumption of that match, Neymar was the big star and even had the luxury of having broken an old Rivaldo record.
Neymar broke two records in this Champions League match where he became 3 of PSG's 5 goals. The first record is historical in the Champions League and I achieved it thanks to the fact that it became more than 20 goals with two different teams. Neymar in his time at FC Barcelona had reached that figure and now he has achieved it at PSG.
Then the other record he broke was one held by the former player of FC Barcelona and the Brazilian team, Rivaldo. The former world soccer star was the Brazilian with the most goals in the Champions League with 40 but now Neymar thanks to the 3 goals he scored against Istanbul Basaksehir became the best Brazilian in the history of the Champions League with 41 goals.
Despite the goals and his great performance, Neymar was widely criticized for kneeling before the game as some media and people on social networks said it was a very hypocritical gesture by the Brazilian forward. Neymar is accused of having made comments that were not well to a Japanese player in the match against Olympic de Marseille
