Neymar magic inspires PSG

Neymar scored a sublime free-kick and set up another goal as PSG rallied to beat 10-man Montpellier 3-1 on Saturday and restore their lead at the top of Ligue 1 to eight points.

Montpellier, unbeaten at home since the opening day of the season, grabbed the lead on 41 minutes when Daniel Congre’s header was diverted into the net

PSG failed to win on their last three trips to Montpellier but the dismissal of Pedro Mendes on 72 minutes for a second yellow card after he scythed down Neymar proved the turning point.

The Brazilian dusted himself down and curled the resulting free-kick from 25 yards for his sixth goal this season to bring PSG level and then slipped a ball through to Kylian Mbappe for the second.
