Brazil international puts in another eye-catching display.
Neymar was at it again as he turned in a brilliant display for Santos at the start of the new Paulista Championship season.
Santos took the lead in this one thanks to a fine counter attack. Arouca won the loose ball, charged up the right wing and played a dangerous cross into the Botafogo box. Goalkeeper Rafael Santos parried the ball weakly and Cicero steered the ball home.
Eight minute later Santos doubled their lead, with Neymar on target.
Cicero spotted the run of his team-mate and chipped a perfect ball over the Botafogo defence – Neymar then teased Rafael Santos before lifting his shot inside the far post.
As Santos coasted in the second half Neymar exhibited another new skill, much to the appereciation of the home crowd.

The 20-year-old then finished his night’s work by setting up Santos’s third.
Substitute Ezequiel Miralles ran on to his through ball and split the Botafogo defence before firing a shot into the back of the net to continue Santos’s perfect start to the season.
