Neymar has scored 37 goals so far in the three competitions. Since we are used to Messi (53 goals) it's difficult to appreciate the numbers of the worldly cracks, but what Barça's 11 is reaching this season is sensational. Any Barça player had scored so many goals since 96/97 season. The last one to do so was also a Brazilian, Ronaldo, who scored 47 goals.

This Tuesday after the match against Bayern, where he scored two goals, he beat Eto'o, who scored 36 the year Barça won the three titles, the first season of Guardiola in the bench (2008/09).

Scoring double than last year

Neymar's improvement is amazing and on his second season he has scored double the goals he scored in the first year (15).

He equalized Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League

Furthermore, Neymar has already scored 9 goals in the European competition, equalizing Cristiano Ronaldo and only one goal behind the top scorer, Leo Messi. The player was decisive in the UCL matches, scoring 6 goals in the last 4 games.
