Neymar Jr. is back. The Brazilian was the star of Barcelona's 2-0 win against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night, which gave the Blaugrana another Champions League semifinal berth. Scoring the two goals and being the second Barça player in one week to make David Luiz look like a fool, Neymar showed once again why he is as important to the team as the rest of MSN.

But despite his great individual performance, Neymar still gave credit to the whole team for yet another dominant display of pressing, killer passing and defensive commitment. For the Brazilian, this team can do great things, and he has one goal with this group -- go back to the Champions League Final:

"We've done exactly as we did in Paris. We played our football, stamped our style on the game and scored goals. That's what was important.

"It was a great performance and I congratulate all the players and the team for the way we have played.

"The play [Andrés Iniesta] made was fantastic. He left me all alone. I just had to get by the keeper and knock it in.

"We're alive and in good shape in all three competitions. I'm very happy with the season I'm having, but even more so with my teammates. We have to keep doing the same thing to reach our objective — to get to the Champions League final."
