Real Madrid, meet Neymar. Neymar, meet Real Madrid.

Just minutes after Madrid defender Sergio Ramos earned a yellow card for knocking down Barcelona's newest star on consecutive plays, the 21-year-old Brazilian scored the opening goal in the 167th edition of El Clasico. Neymar was sent onto Diego Lopez' goal by just the sort of skillful assist that earned Andres Iniesta his nickname: El Ilusionista.

Not only did Neymar, who joined Barcelona on a for £48.6m transfer from Santos in June, make his first mark in the storied rivalry but he also enabled announcer Ray Hudson to deliver yet another unforgettable call.

"Bringing Neymar to a footballing match is like bringing a gun to a knife fight," Hudson bellowed following the score that gave Barcelona the early 1-0 lead at Camp Nou.
