Neymar Gave Ball Away 46 Times

by Raymond Forte

An overall pretty solid season for Brazilian superstar Neymar, the Barcelona forward showed an abysmal display when his team needed him most against Juventus in the Quarter Final of the champions league last night. Juventus were too good defensively, Messi and co just could not break them down. 

Neymar gave the ball away a staggering 46 times last night.

There is no doubt Neymar is one of the worlds best but the Brazilian also surrendered the ball most times against Borussia Monchengladbach (41 times) in the group stage and 38 times in the first leg against PSG.

Barcelona gave a solid performance and Neymar was the only one to under-perform. Juventus did not look like conceding. It is one of the best defensive displays I have seen a team perform on a football pitch. I think Juventus will go on to win the competition.
