The most devastating attacking tandem in football

Kylian Mbappe and Neymar

Back in the summer of 2017, Paris Saint-Germain made a massive €402 million effort to secure the services of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar Junior.

Neglecting the Financial Fair Play rules, the Parisians were focused on making the best team in Europe and go after the Champions League title.

Despite the fact, the 19-year-old Frenchman had barely one full Ligue 1 season with AS Monaco at the time his unique talent has assured the Paris-based outfit to spend €180 million to lure him to Parc des Princes.

However, during his first season in the French capital, Mbappe has stunned the world of football by scoring 21 goals and providing 15 assists in 46 appearances across all competitions under Unai Emery.

At the same time, Neymar, who arrived at PSG for a record-breaking sum of €222 million, has bagged 28 and managed 16 assists in a total of 30 top-flight outings for the reigning Ligue 1 champions.

After being part of Barcelona’s legendary attacking trio, MSN, Neymar has decided to part ways with the Catalans and try his luck in the Ligue 1.

Although he was a protagonist in all of the Blaugrana’s successes on multiple fronts, the Brazilian forward desperately wanted to escape from Messi’s shadow.

Now, next to the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani, the former Santos star comprises another devastating attacking line, which threatens to become one of the best in the previous 20 years.

Mbappe, in particular, is the man that suits Neymar’s playing style the most, which is why the duo has been thrust into the spotlight ever since making their first joint appearance.

With 45 goals in the opening 13 Ligue 1 fixtures, title holders have by far the best goalscoring record in the French top flight. The rampant duo has once again emphasized their importance to the team by taking part in 32 league goals.

With 11 goals notched so far, Mbappe is the joint-top goalscorer in the Ligue 1, the same tally as Nantes’ Emiliano Sala, while Neymar currently resides in the second place with 10.

Considering all the facts, at this very moment, the French starlet and the Brazilian wizard represent the most lethal attacking duo on the planet without a doubt.
