NEYMAR scored a crucial early goal as he and Juan Bernat helped Paris Saint-Germain dump Borussia Dortmund out of the Champions League.
The Brazilian star then lead fans – who were not allowed into the ground amid fears over coronavirus – in raucous celebrations from a balcony of the Parc des Princes.
The Brazilian forward got PSG off to the perfect start as they battled to overturn the 2-1 first-leg deficit.
Neymar nodded home a 29th-minute corner from Angel Di Maria's to level the tie at 2-2 – and put his side ahead on away goals.
To rub salt into the wound, he mocked Erling Haaland's celebration from the first-leg, by sitting on the pitch and pretending to meditate.
Clearly in a playful mood, Neymar had already applauded to the empty stadium ahead of the game.
Juan Bernat doubled the hosts' lead on the stroke of half-time as he scored a composed goal into the left-corner of the net.
Kylian Mbappe – fresh from his coronavirus test after suffering a bout of angina – came off the bench after 67 minutes in a bid to help his side over the line.
Dortmund knew they needed just one goal to force extra-time.
And they threw on Gio Reyna, Julian Brandt and Mario Gotze late on in a bid to snatch that all-important goal.
