PARIS — Neymar and Paris Saint-Germain's high-powered attack have put on another impressive display in a 5-2 win over Montpellier in the French league. Kylian Mbappe also opened his account but missed a penalty in his return from a groin injury. Neymar netted twice to take his tally to three goals in two league games for the defending champion on a night when Lionel Messi was held scoreless.
