Neymar becomes highest-scoring Brazilian in Champions League history after scoring his 31st goal in PSG's Champions League tie with Liverpool

Neymar became the highest-scoring Brazilian in Champions League history on Wednesday night after scoring his 31st goal in the competition.

The milestone strike came in the 36th minute for Paris Saint-Germain against Liverpool at Parc des Princes.


Neymar struck after Edinson Cavani's shot was palmed out to him by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson.

The 26-year-old had drawn level with the previous record - set by Kaka - of 30 last month when he scored a hat-trick in PSG's 6-1 demolition of Red Star Belgrade in Serbia.


That hat-trick also saw him become the 20th player to reach 30 goals in Europe's premier club competition.

Neymar is in good company among former Brazilian superstars.

One-time World Cup winner Rivaldo is third in the all-time rankings.

He notched a total of 27 goals in 73 games while playing for AC Milan and Barcelona.

But Neymar stands above both of those and is close to leading the assist charts, too.
