Guingamp fans won't want to remember this one, but Neymar scored two and grabbed an assist in a NINE-nil win in 2019.

Neymar's form against Angers has extended into this season, where he scored twice to continue his record of scoring in every game he's played against them.

Neymar's final two goals against Coritiba came in 2012, including this wonderful solo effort.

15. Stade Rennais (5 goals)

Neymar's time in Brazil made him into a superstar and he clashed with the previous king Ronaldinho in this fixture too.

13. Cruzeiro (5 goals)

Neymar scored a hat-trick and got an assist in his final game against Cruzeiro, earning a standing ovation from the opposing fans at the end of the game. Legendary.

12. Internacional (5 goals)

A stunning solo run, in the middle of a hat-trick, Neymar showed he was too good for Brazilian domestic football in 2012.

11. AS Monaco (5 goals)

AS Monaco have only beaten a PSG side containing Neymar once, with the Brazilian scoring five times in seven appearances against them.

10. Granada (5 goals)

A hat-trick in 2014 was the first time Granada felt the wrath of the Brazilian and he scored twice more against them too before leaving for France.

9. Real Sociedad (5 goals)

Neymar was never quite the man at Barcelona because of a certain Lionel Messi, but he could always be relied upon to score goals when they needed them.

8. Atletico Paranaense (6 goals)

The story goes that before the game in 2011, the Atletico PR boss held up a picture of Neymar in the changing room and ripped it up to motivate his players. Neymar responded by scoring four and having two more disallowed.

Another game where the Brazilian decided a hat-trick wasn't quite enough, so he hit Rayo for four and added an assist in a 5-2 win.

6. Celta Vigo (6 goals)

Would you like some salsa with that chip? He scored in five different fixtures against Celta, including one in each of the last four he played against them.

5. Atletico Madrid (6 goals)

Neymar has played against Atletico Madrid more than anyone else in his career and scored this magical free-kick against them as one of his six strikes.

4. Paris Saint-Germain (7 goals)

Before playing for PSG, Neymar terrorised them for Barcelona scoring seven times. We couldn't pick a stand-out goal, so here's all of them.

3. Celtic (7 goals)

The Scottish champions hate the sight of Neymar whether he was playing for PSG or Barcelona. Neymar's sides have outscored Celtic 28-2 in the six fixtures he's played in and he's got seven of them alone.

2. Athletic Club de Bilbao (8 goals)

Barcelona won the Copa del Rey three times in a row while Neymar was a the club and he scored in all three finals, including this wonderful left footer in 2015.

1. Villarreal (9 goals)

Potentially the best goal Neymar has scored since moving to Europe came against his favourite opponents, with a Dele Alli-esque overhead flick and volley against Villarreal.
