Barça’s new Brazilian star made a huge impact on the team following his arrival in January. Though unable to play in the Champions League, he scored ten goals in domestic matches – eight times in the league and twice in the cup.

His debut goal was an acrobatic finish in a Copa del Rey encounter with Valencia, while his strikes against Girona and Real Sociedad were also especially spectacular.

He also collected his first hat-trick in a Barça shirt, although sadly that wasn’t enough to avoid 5-4 defeat at Levante.

And he found the target in the cup final at the Wanda Metropolitano, scoring the last of five goals, from the penalty spot, against Sevilla.
