The Brazil international scored a brace against the Girondins as PSG bagged the three points.

PSG defeated Bordeaux 3-2 in their Ligue 1 game on Saturday. The Parisians were 3-0 ahead until the final ten minutes, thanks to two goals from Neymar and a strike from Kylian Mbappe. However, they conceded two goals as soon as their opponents went all-in with their attacks in the game's latter stages.

In a post-match press conference, PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino spoke about the performances of Neymar and Mbappe.

"I think Ney [Neymar] played a good game. I think that overall, also scoring two goals it is noteworthy,"

the Argentine said.

"It is clear that both him and Kylian [Mbappe], who have scored the goals, it is important for our offensive players, of course, that they touch, that they were close to the goal and that they scored."

Asked about his side's defensive performance and the two goals they conceded, Pochettino responded:

"The explanation is clear, we have made two mistakes and we have conceded two goals,

"The goals come from mistakes or the success of the opponents. In this case it was a mix of everything, the opponent's success and our mistakes.

"We must have much more strength in defending these types of situations. It is clear that with the 3-0, Bordeaux attacked, creating some chances, especially from corners, but the game was controlled. A pity that we finished 3-2 because the team had played a good game up to that point."

Neymar will return to Brazil for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Colombia and Argentina.

After the international break, the French giants will continue their Ligue 1 campaign with a match against Nantes on November 20.
