Paris Saint-Germain are Champions League semi-finalists for the first time, but they had their two main men to thank on Wednesday night to get them their.

Both Kylian Mbappe and Neymar put on assists either side of the 90-minute mark to complete a sensational late turn-around against a bullish Atalanta side in Wednesday's quarter-final tie. 

While Neymar enjoyed a fine game overall, his earlier misses in the match forced the half-injured Mbappe to come on and change the game and spare his team-mates' blushes.

Both players are £150million-plus superstars who hold the key to PSG's success in the Champions League's home straight - but which one is the leader that their team is more likely to turn to in the Ligue 1 champions' hour of need? Sportsmail tries to find out...

While Mbappe and Neymar can be categorised together as PSG's main men up top, their personalities couldn't be more different.

The former is the local boy from the 19th arrondissement of Paris, who quietly goes about his goalscoring business and combines his goalscoring pedigree with not a shred of ego in sight.

Compare that to Neymar, whose exudes a personality both on and off the pitch. Whether it be the fancy tricks or the lavish Parisian parties, both the highlights reels and the morning headlines are dominated by the 'box office' Brazilian winger.

While Mbappe has scored more goals and has enjoyed a better relationship with PSG and its supporters since his arrival, the statistics prove that the more controversial Neymar is the still better player in front of goal. 

The Brazilian averages more goals and assists than his French team-mate, who has played a whopping 40 more games for PSG despite the pair arriving at the same time in 2017.

The reason why Neymar has played fewer games is due to his off-the field antics.  

Among the 28-year-old's rap sheet includes consistently picking up league and cup suspensions 'coincidentally' before his birthday parties and going AWOL after a return move to Barcelona was blocked.

This has angered head coach at times, who has disapproved of the 'party image' Neymar brings and it makes Mbappe, who has been more available, scored more goals and less likely to cause embarrassment to the club, the more 'professional' player.

Yet PSG's players and manager are still adamant that Neymar is the PSG leader.
