Barcelona maintained their position at the summit of La Liga after thrashing Rayo Vallecano, which was capped off by a wonderful goal from Neymar on the Brazilian’s return from injury.

Neymar had been sidelined for a month with an ankle problem and marked his comeback with the finest of the 10 goals he has scored for Barcelona since completing his move from Santos in the summer transfer window.

Handed a 30 minute cameo by manager Gerardo Martino with the result well beyond doubt at 5-0, Neymar was able to complete the scoring in the final minute of normal time as he streaked through the heart of the Vallecano midfield and struck from distance.

Neymar showed breathtaking speed to evade a couple of tackles before unleashing his effort on goal from 25 yards, with the ball sailing into the top right corner concluding yet another thumping of the Madrid club.

Barcelona have scores 32 goals in their last seven league encounters with Rayo Vallecano, during which time they have conceded only once.
