And this is because the birthday celebration of his sister Rafaella Santos is held every year that Neymar seems to prioritize above everything else.

But will it be different this time?

Did Neymar play against Bordeaux?

In addition to being one of the most talented players in world football, Neymar is also famous for missing matches around his sister’s birthday (March 11).

So, alarm bells were sounded when the second leg match between PSG and Real Madrid took place on March 9.

However, despite the French giants scoring Karim Benzema’s hat-trick, the Brazilian played the full 90 minutes.

And to surprise everyone even more, Neymar got his first start in PSG’s match this afternoon – just TWO days after Rafaella’s celebratory day.

What is the ‘curse’ and has it been broken?

Neymar’s sister’s birthday has been jokingly called a curse due to the Brazilian superstar repeatedly missing matches around that day.

And this is what has happened in seven of the past eight seasons.

Even Sergio Ramos shed some light on the scenario during his press conference after signing for the French champions in the summer,

The legendary defender said: “I like to play with the best and Neymar is one of them. What we have to negotiate is his sister’s birthday.”

But it looks like Brazil’s second all-time top scorer broke the curse with the winning goal in his encounter with PSG this afternoon.

Or did Rafaella decide to stop celebrating because of the drama surrounding her birthday?
