Spectators Return For PSG Friendly And Get To See Neymar Do Neymar Things

The last thing you want to see after four months off is Neymar.

With the 2019-20 Ligue 1 season cancelled and PSG declared champion for the seventh time in eight years, the club has turned to friendlies to stay sharp with participation in the Coupe de France final (July 24 vs. Saint-Étienne), Coupe de la Ligue final (July 31 vs. Lyon) and Champions League quarterfinals (Aug. 12 vs. Atalanta) still to come.

On Sunday, PSG travelled to the Stade Océane to play Ligue 2 side Le Havre, and for the first time since the coronavirus shut down sports before forcing them behind closed doors, the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Ángel Di María returned with spectators in the stands.

The 25,181-seat stadium allowed 5,000 fans to enter with the requirement that they wear face masks and only sit with families and friends to encourage social distancing.

PSG raced to a 5-0 halftime lead with two goals from both Neymar and Mauro Icardi while Mbappé added one of his own. The pick of the bunch was definitely Neymar’s finish following a Di María through ball.
