Lionel Messi and Neymar have hit the ground running at Paris Saint-Germain this season, scoring 11 and assisting 13 between them in Ligue 1 Uber Eats.

Messi only managed six goals in his maiden Ligue 1 Uber Eats campaign after following Neymar to PSG from Barcelona last summer.

 

But the Argentine legend looks to be back to his best, with his 10 goal involvements this season coming in at a rate of one every 62 minutes he has played.

 

"Messi suffered because the change has been difficult for him and his family," Neymar explained to DAZN. "But now he's better, he's at home.

 

"I want him to take advantage of it. We have a lot of challenges ahead of us, and I'm sure we can win it all."


PSG are top of the Ligue 1 Uber Eats table with 19 points and have opened their UEFA Champions League Group H campaign with victories over Juventus and Maccabi Haifa..

 

Neymar hopes he can secure international glory at Messi's expense at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar this winter, though.

 

"Something will happen with Brazil, he said. "I have a feeling we're going to have a good tournament. We have the right team for that.

 

Win the title? I hope so, that's all I think about. It doesn't matter if I don't score a single goal as long as we win the World Cup. What matters to me is to help the team, to play good matches."
