Neymar Could Break into Top 3 Barca Champions League Scorers

Neymar Jr. has entered the rankings as Barcelona’s sixth leading scorer in Champions League contests.

Neymar Jr. celebrates his brace against Bate Borisov

His brace against BATE Borisov makes for his 16th goal in only 26 outings, edging him over his fellow Brazilian and football legend Ronaldinho. Earlier this month in an interview ‘Dinho named Neymar as his rightful successor and said that the young forward would do great things like the Brazilians that came before him.

‘El Guacho’ netted 14 times in 35 outings for Barcelona.

The most shocking part of Neymar’s success is that he’s only 23 years old. He’ll likely have at least five more years in Barcelona blue and red, but even in 2015 he could make his way into the top 3 champions league goalscorers of all time.

Samuel Eto’o is only two goals ahead of Neymar at 18, Luis Enrique is the next placeholder at 20, and the third place holder Kluivert has 21 to his name.

Neymar has 2 goals in 4 Champions League games, and with Leo Messi injured could see himself within the top 3 by the end of 2015.

The question of if he’ll ever surpass Messi who is currently number 1 at 77?

More of a long-shot to say the least.
