The Brazilian forward netted on his Clasico debut to give the Blaugrana all three points against their most fierce rivals.

Neymar opened the scoring in somewhat fortuitous fashion, finding the back of the net after ball had taken a deflection of Raphael Varane. Alexis Sanchez scored the game's finest goal with little over ten minutes remaining before Jese notched a late consolation goal.
