Last night’s match was also going forward in the same vein as lowly Celta side had managed to keep the game to a 1-1 scoreline till the halfway mark. However, after the break, Barcelona’s MSN trio showed their true potential and demolished the Celta side with a thumping 6-1 victory.
Neymar showed how important he is in the Barcelona line-up with his performance and contributed to the scoreline with a goal. This took Neymar’s scoring tally to 17 int the league this season. The Brazilian has also contributed with nine assists and currently is sitting on top of the charts for creating the most number of goal scoring opportunities in the Spanish top flight.
