Steven Gerrard - he who knows plenty about remarkable Champions League performances in a high-pressure six-minute spell - called Neymar's performance in the closing minutes of last night's absurd, 6-1 comeback the greatest he has seen. While the Brazilian is often derided as a bit of a showman, it was he, rather than Messi or Suarez,who stood up when Barcelona needed him most. His free-kick to begin the comeback was remarkable, and he then kept his cool from the penalty spot a minute later. Most remarkable was his clipped pass for Sergi Roberto in the final seconds, in which he showed remarkable composure and conviction.
Afterward, the Brazilian was naturally in the mood to enjoy himself, and took to Instagram to rub salt into the PSG players; wound as gaping as the holes they left in their defence last night.
