Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar has joined his countryman Ronaldinho and Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in an exclusive goalscoring club.
The trio remain the only group of players since the turn of the century to score goals in both Le Classique and El Clasico.
Ronaldinho and Ibrahimovic both played for PSG and FC Barcelona during their careers, and both scored in the Ligue 1 and La Liga derbies, according to Opta Sports.

The Brazil international played in his first Classique on Sunday, when the Ligue 1 leaders travelled to the Stade Velodrome to take on bitter rivals Marseille.
Despite enduring an unhappy end to the 2-2 on the night, Neymar opened his team’s scoring in the 33rd minute of the match, after Luis Gustavo put the home side in the lead.
The 25-year-old has made 11 appearances for his new club so far this season, scoring 10 goals and assisting eight further strikes.
