Neymar scored the most mind blowing goal

Gerard Pique with Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi

With his two goals on Sunday, Neymar became La Liga's top scorer this season with 11 goals.

There is not much point of me trying to put into words how brilliant this is, so sit back, leave it on repeat and enjoy.

Ironically, just before the goal the Barca fans had launched into a brief chant of "Messi, Messi" to let their injured star know they haven't forgotten him.

"I am delighted to have Neymar, Messi, (Sergio) Busquet, Andres Iniesta and Suarez".

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has lavished praise on "lethal" Neymar after watching Barcelona beat Villarreal in La Liga action at the weekend, a game in which the Brazilian was pivotal.

Munir El Haddadi then set up Suarez when Jaume Costa fouled the forward while dribbling past him in the area, and the striker sent his spot kick to the right of goalie Alphonse Aroela as he dove the other way.

Even by his own already high standards, Neymar conjured a sensational goal during Barcelona's 3-0 victory over Villarreal to further cement his reputation as one of the very best players in the world.

Both sides had chances in an entertaining first half, with Claudio Bravo forced into a block from Samu Castillejo at a narrow-angle after Jordi Alba had slipped on the stroke of half-time.

Real missed his leadership at the back and poor defending allowed Immobile to score from a tight angle at a corner.

"We played well and created a lot of chances".

Barca's next outing comes against Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on November 21.

Atletico Madrid remained in the title hunt thanks to Antoine Griezmann's 93rd-minute winner as they squeezed out a 1-0 win over Sporting Gijon to stay four points behind the leaders.

It was going to take a great goal to break down this Villarreal defence, but Barca proved they have plenty of players capable of providing those.

"With Neymar it is in a few ways similar, they are special players", Luis Enrique told a news conference.
