As you would expect, Paris Saint-Germain's players were truly happy for beating Atalanta and reaching the next round of the UEFA Champions League. Such happiness was reflected by Neymar's gesture towards Eric Choupo-Moting in the post-match interview featuring the Cameroonian.
Choupo-Moting was about to start the interview when Neymar came out of the blue and surprised him from behind. The gesture caused the laughter of the Cameroonian striker and reporters in attendance.

Once the interview concluded, Neymar was given the Man of the Match Award by reporters inside the stadium. What followed next was a true example of humility by Neymar, who decided to give Eric Choupo-Moting the award instead, praising his team-mate for his contribution to PSG's win.

Now, PSG will watch closely the match between RB Leipzig and Atlético Madrid, since any of those teams could be the only thing standing in the way of Les Parisiens' first UEFA Champions League final.
