Neymar Jr's 100 games by the numbers

Posted on at

A massive 42.96% of the Brazilian's shots on target in an FC Barcelona shirt have resulted in goals - of which he has an impressive tally of 58 in his first century of appearances.


Neymar Jr joined Barça in the summer of 2013 and has now made it to 100 appearances for the club. He already has five titles under his belt and now is the perfect time to look back at the impressive stats that he has accumulated in just over two seasons of football in Barcelona.

He has started 87 of those games, totalling 7,663 minutes. In that time he has only ever experienced 15 defeats, along with 11 draws. Barça won all 74 of the other encounters – as the following breakdown shows (click on the different competitions to view the charts):

Goals are second nature to Neymar. He made a great start by scoring the winner in the 2013 Spanish Super Cup, but it was in the 2014/15 season that he really started delivering at an extraordinary rate. He’s got 59 in his personal account, and this chart will provide some insight into where those goals have come from.

The Brazilian’s stats are even more staggering when we look at his shooting rate. When Neymar hits the target, there is a 42.96% chance that he’s going to find the back of the net. Here his shots are divided into different categories and competitions – have fun exploring Neymar’s brilliance from a variety of different angles!

Being part of what many claim to be the best attacking threesome ever assembled, where he plays alongside Messi and Suárez, Neymar’s job is as much about providing goals as it about scoring them himself. Here you can analyse his goal assist and passing rates.
