After scoring a new goal in the Premier League, Erling Haaland with Manchester City began to be criticized for not having as much impact on the pitch with the ball at his feet. However, the Norwegian has shown that he does not need to touch the ball a lot to break the goals of his rivals, and his goals this season prove it. He, well, he harvests 14 goals joining the Premier League and the Champions League.
More than impressive numbers, but if there is someone who can beat him, it is Neymar Jr at Paris Saint-Germain. The season started, and whoever likes it, Ney stayed in the French capital in the face of doubts that put his future very far from Ligue 1. Christophe Galtier has given him full confidence, and it seems that the club’s fans now do they love him when before they reproached him for his attitude on the court.
Neymar wanted to stay and before the whistles in the Parc des Princes, he reacted with unusual responses such as that they had to put up with it until 2025. However, he managed to extend his contract until 2027, and Ney has left no doubts with his excellent performances on the pitch.
Against Olympique de Lyon, Neymar again added a new assist for Lionel Messi to score the only goal. The Brazilian, joining Kylian Mbappé and Messi, has formed a much more effective and voracious trident than in last season. Ney surpasses Erling Haaland as the player in the five major leagues with the highest participation in goal actions, adding goals and assists.
At this start of the season, Neymar has scored eight goals and seven assists, adding 15 plays that end up in the back of the net, Erling Haaland follows him with 11 Premier goals and one assist. Thus, Ney shows that he is ready for the World Cup. He recovered his best level, exchanges criticism for praise and is the one who has the most incidents with his teammates on the court.
