#5 First El Clásico Goal
October 26, 2013: A full packed Camp Nou awaited Real Madrid for the season's first Clasico and it was the first time in 4 years, two new superstars were the highlights of the show along with traditional nemesis Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. And the one who stole the show was Neymar Jr. What better way to introduce yourself to Real Madrid than score one against them?
Minute 18: Iniesta gets the ball in the midfield, runs forward and provided a short pass to Neymar inside the penalty box. Neymar receives the ball on his left foot, controls it and sets himself up on his right foot by taking a touch and tucks the ball into the far post. The ball goes through Carvajal's legs, slightly touches Varane and settles into the far post, with Diego Lopez having no chance of saving it.
He then set up Alexis Sanchez for Barcelona's second. After spotting the run of Sanchez, Neymar threaded a through ball to the Chilean, splitting two Madrid players as Barcelona won 2-1 on the night and Neymar received a standing ovation in the 85th minute when he was substituted. No better way to announce yourself to the world.
