Neymar made quite a few headlines with his solidarity gestures aimed at Istanbul Basaksehir's players and staff yesterday, but he was all business today when the match resumed.
The Brazilian ace was key to lead PSG to a comfortable win against a Turkish side by scoring a hat-trick and by being involved in most of his team's chances to score. "Ney" scored a brace during the first half and added a solo effort during the second to cap a massive individual performance.
With his performance, Neymar scored his third hat-trick in the competition and accomplished a couple of interesting feats while at it.
Excluding Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, nobody has more Champions League hat-tricks than Neymar.— bwin (@bwin) December 9, 2020

And now, the Brazilian ace has reasons to think of himself as the most successful striker from his country to ever play in this competition.
