2013-12-14_BARCELONA-VILLARREAL_25.v1387058227Brazilian  Neymar striked twice to guide Barcelona to a 2-1 victory over Villarreal at the Nou Camp as they pulled ahead of Atletico Madrid at the top of the Primera Division.

 

Neymar converted a penalty after Mario Gaspar had handled the ball, only for the visitors to equalize through Mateo Musacchio‘s fierce header three minutes after the break.

 

Barcelona found Villarreal’s defence tough to break down but they eventually found their way through in the 68th minute when Neymar fired home a simple goal.

 

Victory takes Barcelona three clear of Atletico and five points ahead of Real Madrid who were held by Osasuna earlier on Saturday.
