Neymar's impact on Champions League put into one video

If there was ever any doubt about Neymar's consistency, he's banished it with his form in the Champions League this season.

For some reason, the Brazilian's been a somewhat divisive figure ever since he moved to the Nou Camp, and it's fair to say he doesn't always receive the adoration from fans that Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez enjoy.

However, while Messi earned all the plaudits for his two goals against Celtic, Neymar was once again there in the background helping him out.

The 24-year-old's assist for Messi's first strike was superb, neatly lifting the ball over the top and landing it perfectly at the Argentine's feet.

It's far from the first goal he's been involved in over the course of Barcelona's European campaign - he's scored twice himself, and assisted a total of seven.

Wouldn't it be great if there was a video to sum up just how crucial he's been in helping Barca to the top of Group C?

Thanks to the Champions League's Twitter account, there is. Let's take a look:

Last night was therefore just another reminder of what he can do at the highest level. The Blaugrana are now four points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City in the group, despite losing 3-1 to Pep Guardiola's men when the two sides last met.

That's not to say Neymar's form has been restricted to one competition. In La Liga, it's a tally of four goals and four assists from 10 games, which isn't to be sniffed at either.

Is Neymar underrated or overrated? Have your say in the comments.
