The Brazilian may not have scored, but he was named Man of the Match following PSG's last-minute 2-1 win over the Serie A side.

Atalanta took a first-half lead before late goals from Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting saw the French giants turn the tie on its head.

Despite missing a few scoring opportunities himself, Neymar produced a brilliant display to receive the Man of the Match award.

He also equalled Messi and Zanetti's record for the most dribbles in a single Champions League match after completing 16 attempts on Wednesday evening, according to Opta Sports. 

Zanetti was the first to achieve the impressive statistic during a game against Dynamo Kiev in 2003, while Messi matched it in a clash against Manchester United in April 2008.

In comparison, the whole Atalanta squad managed to complete just six dribbles against PSG on Wednesday night.
