The Brazilian has faced the Yellow Submarine three times in league games at the Camp Nou and has racked up five goals – making them his joint number one victim in the stadium, along with Athletic Club, Rayo Vallecano and PSG.
His first meeting was in 2013, a game Leo Messi missed through suspension but Neymar stepped into the Argentinian’s shoes and scored both goals in a 2-1 win.
In the 2014/15 season, Barça came twice from behind to nab the three points, with Neymar again contributing.
And last season, with Messi also out through injury, he claimed another brace including a stunner that raised eyebrows around the world.
Coupled with games away to Villarreal and also in the Copa del Rey, Neymar Jr’s tally against the all-yellows rises to eight – more than he has scored against any other team apart from Athletic Club.
Here's his the full record - and you can see the goals by clicking on the video above:
