In addition to just the goalscoring numbers, Neymar has 19 career Champions League assists, giving him a hand in 50 goals in 52 Champions League games
The 26-year-old scored in the 37th minute on Wednesday, with PSG already maintaining a 1-0 lead stemming from an early Juan Bernat finish.
The Brazilian started and finished the sequence, which began with a perfectly hit through ball to Kylian Mbappe down the left-hand side.
Mbappe squared a pass to Edinson Cavani, who saw his shot stopped by Alisson only for Neymar to fire home the rebound and double PSG's advantage, though a James Milner penalty just before the break cut the lead in half.
The goal is Neymar's fourth Champions League goal of the season, having scored a hat-trick against Red Star Belgrade in PSG's second group stage match.
PSG went into Wednesday's clash at the Parc des Princes knowing that anything less than a point would all but seal the end of their Champions League run.
