This Wednesday is the 100-day anniversary of Neymar Jr’s first match as an FC Barcelona player. It was on July 30 when Barça played their third of six preseason matches, away to Gdansk in Poland. On the 78th minute, Neymar was subbed in for Alexis and he contributed to the definitive two-all draw.

At the beginning of the season, Tata Martino was very cautious with the Brazilian’s fitness. The player watched the team’s first two league matches from the bench, but he started the third. Usually positioned on the left wing, Neymar has consistently shown himself to be elegant, ruthless with his incisive passes, and dangerous in front of goal.

The Brazilian has played a total of 15 official matches with Barça: 10 in the league, 3 in the Champions League and 2 in the Spanish Super Cup. His record so far stands at 11 victories and 4 draws. He’s scored four goals and given eight assists.
