Juventus 1 Barcelona 2: Neymar On Target Twice In Win


Neymar stole the show as a dominant Barcelona recorded a 2-1 win over Juventus at the International Champions Cup on Saturday.

He needed just 15 minutes before firing Barcelona ahead to send the capacity crowd of 82,500 into high spirits.

The Brazil international scored a first-half brace, a neat finish followed by a spectacular individual goal in New Jersey.

Neymar then danced through the Juventus defence again 10 minutes later to double Barcelona’s lead.

Buffon denied him a chance at a hat trick before Barcelona changed all 11 players at half-time, with Neymar and Lionel Messi giving way while Luis Suarez came on.

Giorgio Chiellini pulled a goal back for the Bianconeri after the break but Neymar had already done the damage in the first period.

Denis Suarez missed a great chance to restore Barca’s two-goal lead when he blazed over and Carles Alena and Sergi Roberto also went close as the LaLiga giants saw out their win.
