Neymar the heroe

Neymar's goals were his first for
Barcelona in La Liga since 26 March
Neymar came off the bench to score twice as
Barcelona defeated a stubborn Athletic Bilbao
to maintain their 100% start to the La Liga

The Brazilian, making his second Barca
appearance since injuring his back at the World
Cup, came on in the 63rd minute for a
struggling home side.

He quickly made his presence felt with a neat
finish following Lionel messi pass to break
Bilbao's resistance.

And he sealed the win with a close-range finish
from another Messi assist.

The goals were the 22-year-old's first since
26 March, when he scored twice in a 3-0
home win over Celta Vigo, and mean Barca
have now won all three of their opening games
this campaign.

Neymar's input was sorely needed by his side,
who had enjoyed plenty of possession and
chances throughout the game but had failed to
break down a well-drilled Bilbao backline
before his introduction.

Prior to the match a large banner was unfurled
in honour of Catalan National Day, while on the
pitch the home side wore their away strip,
which incorporates the red and yellow colours
of Catalonia.

Neymar had only made one previous La Liga
appearance this season - as a substitute
against Villarreal
