The Brazilian superstar, Neymar, scored his 13th goal of the season as the French champions thrashed Metz at Parc des Princes. PSG wrapped up their 2021-22 campaign in style as they thrashed Metz 5-0 at Parc des Princes on Saturday, with Kylian Mbappe scoring a hat-trick to celebrate his surprise new contract extension.
The Frenchman stole most of the headlines after snubbing a transfer to Real Madrid, but Neymar also managed to get on the scoresheet, joining a very exclusive club in the process.
