On September 16, Neymar made his debut in Al-Hilal’s jersey in the Saudi Pro League match. Although he did not see the goal that day, he contributed well to the team’s victory. The Brazilian star brought victory to the club by showing glimpses in the debut match. His assist won Al-Hilal 6-1.
However, Neymar’s brilliance was missing in the AFC Champions League match. Al-Hilal played the first match from Group D. Although the Brazilian star was not in the starting eleven in the debut match, he was in the starting eleven in this match. Al-Hilal attacked the Uzbekistan club from the beginning. Despite three successful attacks in the first 20 minutes, Neymar’s club was denied a goal due to lack of finishing. This is how the first half of the game continued. The two teams went into the break goalless after repeatedly failing.
After the break in the first half, Navbahor’s appearance changed. They kept Al-Hilal busy with smart attacks. The team was successful in 52 minutes. Navbahor striker Toma Tabatadze rattled Neymar’s net with a right-footed shot. Al-Hilal lost 1-0. Forward Abrar Ismailov assisted in the goal.

Al-Hilal got a chance to score a great goal three minutes after conceding the goal. But this time the team failed. Midfielder Ruben Neves failed to net the ball from Neymar’s cross. Neymar was losing his temper without seeing the goal. He fouled in the 60th minute. A yellow card should be seen. Even then, the audience was eager to see Neymar’s debut goal. But that didn’t happen anymore.
Al-Hilal had four more successful attacks until the 80th minute. Most of his attacks were in Neymar’s favour, but each time the picture of failure emerged. In the 88th minute, Neymar himself failed to score. However, after 90 minutes, Hilal was saved in extra time. Defender Ali Al-Bulaihi headed in a cross from the team’s striker Michael Delgado to equalize. It saved Al-Hilal and big star Neymar. In the end, as there were no more goals, the two teams left the field with a 1-1 draw.
