One month after leading the most improbable of comebacks, Neymar earned himself the scorn of Barcelona's fans with a pair of senseless bookings.Then, knowing he was one false step from leaving his team with 10 men, Neymar charged into a Malaga player with no real chance to win back the ball.As if he hadn't hurt his team enough already, Neymar may have made matters worse by sarcastically applauding the assistant referee as he exited the field.Suddenly, he wasn't just Lionel Messi's flashy sidekick; he had willed Barcelona to victory as only a true leader can.Now, with his reputation tarnished, Neymar heads to Turin for the first of two legs against a Juventus side he helped beat two years ago in the Champions League final to give Barcelona its fifth European Cup.While Messi leads the Champions League with 11 goals, Neymar tops the competition with eight assists, to go along with four goals of his own.
