Barcelona romped to an impressive 3-0 win over Villarreal yesterday, with all three goals coming in the first half. It was a symbolic message to the rest of the league as well, that they are perfectly capable of turning on the style, in the absence of Lionel Messi.
But while the manner of their victory was impressive, Neymar was undoubtedly the star of the match – scoring two of their three goals. But while the first one was a routine goal, Neymar’s second strike was absolutely brilliant.
He showcased tremendous ability and confidence – flicking the ball over a defender, turning and firing a volley into the back of the net, to send the Barca faithful into frenze mode.
