Neymar bags stunning brace as Barcelona defeat Juventus in ICC

Juventus 1-2 Barcelona 

Neymar scored two wonder goals as Barcelona beat Juventus 2-1 in the International Champions Cup at the MetLife Stadium on Saturday.

The Brazil international is wanted by Paris Saint Germain, and once again the player showed exactly why in New Jersey.

In his 45-minute performance, the playmaker broke the deadlock after receiving the ball from Lionel Messi, before playing a one-two with Paco Alcacer and finishing emphatically.

The TV replays showed Neymar’s immaculate close control, despite him running at speed.

Neymar’s opening strike may have involved his team-mates, but his second was all about him as he glided past five Juve defenders, before leaving veteran Italy goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon helpless.

Neymar was denied a hat-trick by Buffon, before being substituted at half-time.

The Serie A champions did, however, reduce the deficit in the second half through Giorgio Chiellini’s far-post header.
