Neymar has scored in seven successive games for Paris St-Germain Neymar scored twice as Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain were made to settle for a point in a six-goal thriller against Monaco at the Parc des Princes. The Brazilian struck a third-minute opener before goals from Gelson Martins and Wissam Ben Yedder completed a quick six-minute turnaround for the visitors. Fode Ballo-Toure's own-goal and Neymar's second from the penalty spot then handed PSG a half-time lead. But Islam Slimani made it 3-3 after 70 minutes to deny the champions victory. Slimani's goal was eventually awarded after a lengthy video assistant referee review overruled an initial offside verdict.
Kylian Mbappe, who won his side's penalty following a foul by Martins, and Edinson Cavani both squandered injury-time opportunities as PSG chased a winner. A point leaves Thomas Tuchel's side five points clear of closest challengers Marseille with one game in hand.
