Barcelona star Neymar made it five goals in two games with a brace in their 2-1 win over Villarreal. The double followed his hat-trick in victory over Champions League opponents Celtic.

Neymar converted a penalty after Mario Gaspar had handled the ball, only for the visitors to equalise through Mateo Musacchio's fierce header three minutes after the break.

Barcelona were finding Villarreal's defence tough to break down but they eventually found their way through in the 68th minute when Neymar fired home a simple goal.

Victory takes Barcelona three clear of Atletico and five points ahead of Real Madrid who were held by Osasuna earlier on Saturday.
