Barcelona new-boy Neymar poses with team-mates on Instagram following the Catalan's Spanish Super Cup triumph last night. 

Despite drawing 0-0 with opponents Atletico Madrid in yesterday's second-leg encounter, Barcelona's away goal, scored by Neymar himself, in the first-leg 1-1 draw was enough to give the Catalan outfit the victory - which the Brazilian is clearly delighted with.

It was the striker's first start to his Barca career since his summer move from Santos and his first trophy with the club.

However, the game itself proved a difficult one for the Spanish giants, particularly Lionel Messi, who missed the chance to wrap up the cup for the Blaugrana from the spot late on in a match that saw Atleti defender Felipe Luis sent off for lashing out at Pedro and playmaker Arda Turan dismissed after being substituted. 

Messi's miss wasn't to matter though as the result was enough for Barca to win their 16th trophy in nearly four years and the first of new boss Gerardo Martino's reign.
