Neymar was back to near his best as his superb skills fired PSG to a confidence-boosting 4-0 home win over Dijon in Ligue 1.

What was Neymar's overall display like?

📷 Match Snapshot

Neymar started with real intent, constantly taking the ball and running directly at the heart of the Dijon back line. And the Brazilian seems to be more generous than ever these days, willing to lay in team-mates rather than shoot himself.

A ⏱️ 23' And on 23 mins he spun down the left flank and cut inside, and instead of shooting laid the ball across to forward Moise Kean, who had the simplest of tasks to roll the ball into the net.

Various other opportunities were squandered by his colleagues - Neymar collected an unbelievable eight key passes in the contest - but in the closing stages substitute Kylian Mbappe rounded off the win.

A ⏱️ 82' Neymar went on another typical run - he completed five dribbles in the match - and laid the ball into the path of Mbappe, who drilled the ball under the body of the goalkeeper.

Neymar also made the pre-assist to Pablo Sarabia for the final goal, for him to slide to Mbappe for the fourth goal.
