Barcelona counted on its biggest stars to get a gigantic comeback victory over Atlético Madrid on Saturday. Neymar Jr. and Lionel Messi were the goalscorers, and Luis Suárez also played an important part in what turned out to be a fantastic win at Vicente Calderón.

Neymar was one of the stars on Saturday, and his biggest highlight came when he scored a spectacular free-kick to tie the game right after Atleti's goal.
