Neymar has Barcelona level, but they need another

Barcelona have struggled all match against Atlético Madrid and are in hot water heading to the Vicente Calderon no matter how they close out their match -- thanks to Diego's absolute stunner -- but they're on their way towards turning their Champions League tie around. Neymar has them level with a great narrow-angle finish, assisted by Andres Iniesta.

Barca

Neymar's first-time shot is a brilliant one, but, as is the case with most Barcelona goals, the pass is just as impressive as the finish. And Neymar's run off the ball might be the most impressive part of the goal.

No one would count Barcelona out if they headed into the second leg with the score holding at 1-1, but Atléti would certainly be the favorites to progress in that situation, and they'll like their chances even if they concede one more. Barca really need another goal, if not two, to feel like they're in control.
