Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – The footballing world witnessed Neymar’s much-anticipated debut in the AFC Champions League as he donned the Al Hilal jersey, but it was a roller-coaster affair for the Brazilian superstar. In a dramatic showdown against Navbahor Namangan, Neymar’s journey into Asian club football got off to a heated start.

The King Fahd International Stadium in Riyadh came alive as fans gathered to witness the former Paris Saint-Germain maestro in action for Al Hilal. With rumors swirling about his participation, Neymar took to the pitch, dispelling any doubts about his availability for the fixture.

However, what was supposed to be a memorable debut turned tumultuous when Neymar found himself in the referee’s book. His moment of recklessness saw him earn a yellow card for a series of actions that included a push on an opponent, resulting in a tumble, and a fierce kick directed towards his adversary. The fiery display demonstrated the intense competitive spirit that has defined Neymar’s career.

Despite Neymar’s eventful presence on the field, Al Hilal could only manage a 1-1 draw against their Uzbekistani counterparts. Falling behind initially, Al Hilal fought back to level the score but couldn’t secure the win. The result leaves Al Hilal with a single point from the encounter, positioning them in second place in Group D of the AFC Champions League.

Leading the group is Nassaji Mazandaran FC, who claimed a 2-0 victory over Mumbai City FC in another thrilling fixture. Neymar’s Al Hilal now faces the challenge of regrouping and aiming for a stronger performance in the upcoming matches to make their mark in the highly competitive AFC Champions League.
