Neymar sensationally has upped the soccer and trolling antes.
The Paris Saint-Germain superstar copied Dortmund’s Erling Haaland’s goal celebration Wednesday in the teams’ Champions League Round of 16 second-leg game. Neymar gave PSG a 1-0 lead in the 28th minute, then sprinted to the sidelines, celebrated with teammate Kylian Mbappe — who tested negative for coronavirus Tuesday — before sitting and seemingly mocking Haaland’s celebration.

Haaland scored twice against PSG on Feb. 18 in Dortmund’s 2-1 first-leg win.
Neymar’s goal tied the PSG-Dortmund series at 2-2 on aggregate. Juan Bernat ultimately booked PSG’s place in the quarterfinals when he scored in the 45th minute of Wednesday’s game, thus sparing Neymar of karmic payback for his trolling of Haaland.
