Barcelona defeated AC Milan by a 3-1 scoreline at Camp Nou on Wednesday, November 6 but one of the incidents to come out of the Champions League Group H clash, which the Catalan club now top by five points, was a Lionel Messi brace, a Sergio Busquets strike nor a Gerard Pique own goal, but a Neymar dive.
During a week when simulation has been a hot topic across the continent, it begs a question as to whether the Brazilian's theatrics were on par, or worse, than the demonstrations by Ashley Young the night prior, or Daniel Sturridge during Liverpool's 2-0 loss to in-form Arsenal in the Premier League last weekend.
Multiple angles in the clip above implicate Neymar in a diving scandal as, even if there is arm contact it is either a: minimal or b: innocent, leading one to presume that the 21-year-old could have stayed vertical.
Ashley Young's is just as pathetic.
Is Kieran Gibbs' phantom challenge really that strong?
