The Brazilian striker melted into a hug with his teammates at the end of the match and could not hold back his tears, as he is the first time he has passed the Champions League round of 16 since in the summer of 2017 he decided to change Barça for PSG.

That season, the Parisian club stumbled upon Real Madrid, who beat him in both commitments. The French fell in the Santiago Bernabéu 3-1 and in the Parque de los Príncipes 1-2.

Last year, the slap was louder, because PSG let out a two-goal lead playing before his public before Manchester United full of substitutes. The ‘red devils’ raised the 0-2 of the first leg at Old Trafford with an unexpected 1-3.

Neymar was one of the architects of the comeback against Borussia Dortmund with his goal in the 28th minute that opened the way to victory.

The Brazilian celebrated his goal with enthusiasm and took the opportunity to check Erling Haaland, the young Dortmund striker who, with his double in the first leg, had put PSG on the ropes.

Neymar celebrated the goal with the same gesture that Haaland did in the first leg, bringing the thumb and forefinger of both hands together, a gesture of Buddhist relaxation. At the end of the match, all the PSG footballers celebrated the pass to quarters in the same way.

The Brazilian striker knows what it is to win a Champions League. He did it with FC Barcelona in 2015, in what was the second treble in the history of the Blaugrana team. With PSG he had always fallen at the first change after the group stage.
