Neymar's signing, while controversial, is already bringing good numbers for PSG.
The talented Brazilian ace was influential to Les Parisiens' 4-0 win against Anderlecht, and proved that his partnership with Kylian Mbappé and Edinson Cavani can bring joy to their fans even if he can't get along with the Uruguayan.
Today, all three strikers had something to brag about. To kick things off, the French starlet scored the first goal of the evening and confirmed his status as the best player of his generation.
The next player of the goal scoring trio to send the ball into the back of the net was Cavani (after an assist by Mbappé).

Having watched his team-mates score, Neymar joined the party with a cheeky free kick. He needs six goals to become the best Brazilian goalscorer in the competition.

If these numbers weren't enough to support their bid to become UCL champions, their entire run in this competition is really note-worthy.
"PSG has signed their best-ever start in the UEFA Champions League: 9 pts, 12 goals for, 0 goals allowed"
