Neymar Continues The Excellent Brazilian Tradition Of Using Your Back To Pass

Just like Ronaldinho before him, Neymar is playing his own game out there.

A meeting between runaway Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain and last-place Guingamp went exactly as you’d expect on Saturday with the Parisian side romping to a 9-0 victory. (Fun fact: Guingamp has scored 16 goals all season, so PSG recorded more than half that total in just one match.)

Kylian Mbappe had a hat-trick, Edinson Cavani had a hat-trick and Neymar recorded a brace (including one ridiculous strike that was worked with a sombrero flick). The Brazilian also channeled compatriot Ronaldinho when using his BACK to pick out Cavani at the top of the box.  

We’re not sure who first broke out this particular party trick, but Ronnie wasn’t shy when using it in friendlies… 

Or in actual competitive matches…

For Neymar and a match between PSG and Guingamp, it’s probably somewhere in-between.
