As Barcelona were held to a 2-2 draw against Lechia Gdansk, in their latest pre-season friendly, Neymar made his debut for the Catalans coming on with 10 minutes to spare. 

The Spanish outfit started with a  number of youngsters, including Jonathan Dos Santos, Tello and Bartra, who was the only Barca star to play the entire 90 minutes. 

The Polish side represented a tricky challenge for the Nou Camp outfit as Barcelona twice found themselves behind thanks to goals from Jaroslaw Bieniuk and Piotr Grzelczak.

However goals from Sergi Roberto and Argentine ace Lionel Messi salvaged a draw for the Blaugrana as they continued their preparations for the new season.

Messi's equaliser was yet another trademark strike for the World Player of the Year, as he lifted the ball over the out-coming Gdansk 'keeper Jan Bak. 

And despite a late appearance from their latest superstar, Neymar, the Spanish champions were unable to find a late goal in the PGE Arena.  

Next up for Barcelona is a home match with Santos, as Neymar will come up against his old club on his Nou Camp debut.
