Raphinha Pulls Out Neymar’s Celebration After Scoring vs PSG

The Brazilian winger netted a brace as Barcelona edged out Paris Saint-Germain 3-2 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final fixture at Parc des Princes on Wednesday.


After scoring his second goal of the night, Raphinha emulated his compatriot Neymar’s trademark celebration of putting his hands on his head while sticking his tongue out.

The former Leeds United star opened the scoring for the Catalan giants in the first half, but PSG fought back strongly at the beginning of the second half as Ousmane Dembele and Vitinha found the back of the net in a span of two minutes.

Raphinha then completed his brace with a brilliant finish in the 62nd minute while substitute Andreas Christensen scored his maiden goal of the season to hand his team an important first-leg lead.

Neymar performed this celebration for the first time in 2022 after scoring for PSG against Brest from Lionel Messi’s assist.


After the game, the Brazilian explained the reason behind the new celebration as he wrote on X that it was dedicated to his ‘haters’.
