It was on Neymar’s shoulders to inspire Barcelona to victory against Malaga this afternoon.
Lionel Messi missed the game through an illness while Luis Suarez was suspended, meaning of Barca’s MSN attacking trio, only the N turned up at the Camp Nou.
Luis Enrique started Paco Alcacer and Arda Turan alongside the Brazilian but they weren’t good enough to break through a resilient Malaga defence.
The away team were reduced to 10 men with little more than 20 minutes remaining yet still held on for a memorable point.
Barca, meanwhile, missed the opportunity to overtake Real Madrid atop La Liga. They will now wait to see who comes out on top in the Madrid derby this evening.
The home supporters were waiting for Neymar to produce a moment of magic and, although he didn’t score, he did perform one piece of skill that had the crowd off their seats, according to GiveMeSport.
With the ball bouncing away from goal, he ruined a Malaga defender with a delightful sombrero.
