Neymar hits hat-trick in PSG 6-1 victory

Neymar braced a hat-trick for Paris Saint-Germain in 6-1 win over Serbian side Red Star Belgrade on Wednesday.

Neymar scored two free kicks to complete a stunning hat-trick. The Brazilian was joined by kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani.

The result left PSG on three points from two games after their opening 3-2 defeat by Liverpool at Anfield.

Neymar laid the foundations with two first half goals in the space of two minutes, the opener a sublime free kick and then exchanging passes with French World Cup hero Mbappe before scoring the second.
Cavani netted the third on 37 minutes with the aid of a deflection before Di Maria beat Milan Borjan in the Red Star goal from a 41st minute cross by Thomas Meunier.
Neymar was involved in setting up Mbappe for his goal midway through the second half before the small contingent of Red Star fans were given some cheer by a 74th minute strike from former German international winger Marin.
Neymar completed his hat-trick with another curling free kick, which is his 10th goal in nine Ligue 1 and Champions League games.
He was immediately substituted by Thomas Tuchel to a deserved standing ovation, the coach later describing his performance as “sensational.”
