Barcelona 3-0 Villarreal

Neymar
Neymar took his tally to 11 league goals for the season

Brazil's Neymar scored twice for Barcelona - including a stunning second - as the La Liga champions comfortably defeated Villarreal at the Nou Camp.

Neymar had side-footed home the opener in the second half, but saved his best until last, flicking the ball over a defender and volleying home.

Luis Suarez netted Barca's second from the penalty spot after Munir El Haddadi was brought down.

Barcelona face rivals Real Madrid in El Clasico in their next league game.

Luis Enrique's Barca players take on Rafa Benitez's men at the Santiago Bernabeu on 21 November.
