VIDEO: Bale has a long way to go before he's this good

Barcelona's Neymar produced a brilliant bit of skill in the champion's 3-2 win against Sevilla over the weekend.

Gareth Bale may be one of the most talked about players in Spanish football at the moment but he’s got a long way to go before he can be as gutsy as Barcelona’s Neymar.

In a weekend where most of the focus and attention was going to be on Real Madrid, Neymar produced an efficient performance as Barcelona fought for a 3-2 win against Sevilla at the Nou Camp.

That performance included a superb piece of intelligent skill which left Sevilla’s Coke looking rather silly, as Neymar beat him in a split second before running into acres of space.

Even more focus will be on Real Madrid following Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract renewal but Barcelona remain the team to beat in La Liga and the table with arguably the best ball players in Europe.

Take a look at Neymar’s gutsy skills below.

How long before Bale has the confidence to try something like that?
