GIF: Neymar Scores Twice for Barcelona vs. Villarreal

BR-UK StaffFeatured Columnist IVDecember 14, 2013

No Lionel Messi, no problem. That's what Neymar's hat-trick prompted us to write in midweek and we're writing it again tonight.

The Brazilian prodigy stepped up to put Barcelona ahead from the penalty spot against Villarreal.

Should the penalty have been given in the first place? The ball clearly hits a hand, but we'll leave it up to you lot to decide if the referee was a little harsh.

The two teams went into halftime with Barca 1-0 up. Villarreal then equalised, but Neymar—thanks to good work from Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez—grabbed his second with 20 minutes to go.

He almost got a hat-trick. And then there was this loveable exchange between Neymar and a group of fans, after he was booked for apparently taking a corner too early, as per the Daily Mail.

We predict Neymar will have a decent career.
