NEYMAR SCORED HIS Neymar scored his first league goal in Spanish football as Barcelona maintained their 100% start to the campaign with a 4-1 win over Real Sociedad at the Camp Nou on Tuesday.

The Brazilian bundled home Alexis Sanchez’s cross after just five minutes before perfectly picking out Lionel Messi to plant a diving header past Claudio Bravo three minutes later.

Sergio Busquets added a third before half-time with a sweet strike from 20 yards to register his first goal of the season as the home side produced their best 45 minutes of the season to date.

Alberto De la Bella reduced the arrears for Real Sociedad midway through the second half, but Messi crossed for Marc Bartra to round off the scoring 14 minutes from time as Barca scored four for the third consecutive game.
