A performance of thrilling skill and relentless invention gave FC Barcelona a big win against Celtic FC on a night graced by a superb Neymar hat-trick.
The Brazilian international, supported by strikes from Pedro Rodríguez, Gerard Piqué and Cristian Tello, scored for the first time in this competition and when he left the pitch shortly before the end, it was to a rapturous standing ovation. Celtic's fate seemed sealed within seven minutes, partly because that is how long it took for Piqué to break the deadlock but still more because it was crystal clear the Spanish champions, who wrapped up top spot in Group H, were in the zone.
