Neymar is racking up the milestones in his fourth Camp Nou season after passing Barca icon and compatriot Ronaldinho's mark of 94 goals for the club last month.

After signing from Santos in 2013, he scored his first goal in that year's Supercopa de Espana against Atletico Madrid, which was also his first of nine trophies.

His best goal scoring season was in 2014-15, when he netted 39 times to help Barca win the treble.
