ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says Real Sociedad were lambs to the slaughter in their 4-0 defeat by Barcelona.
FC Barcelona striker Neymar has been praised as the world's best by his current and former coaches.
The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on Neymar being the second best player on the planet, Liverpool or Tottenham and more.
