Neymar displayed frustration as Al Hilal unexpectedly drew against Navbahor in the AFC Champions League.
Ali Albulayhi salvaged a point with a late injury-time goal, leveling the score after Toma Tabatadze’s opener.
Despite featuring players like Ruben Neves, Malcom, and Aleksandar Mitrovic, the Saudi Pro League team couldn’t overcome their Uzbekistani opponents.
In a heated moment just before the hour mark, Neymar, the former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain superstar, lost his temper while taking a free-kick, pushing Abror Ismailov before striking the ball towards him, earning a yellow card.

Neymar’s presence in the AFC Champions League marks only his second appearance for Al Hilal, following his summer transfer from PSG. His move to the Middle East club came at an initial cost of £77.6 million.
The 31-year-old made his debut for Al Hilal last Friday, delivering an impressive performance off the bench. His team was leading 3-1 when he joined the action, and he played a role in one of the three goals during their 6-1 victory.
Neymar had several close opportunities to score but was unable to find the net. Al Hilal, currently leading the league with five wins in their first six games, will continue their campaign on Thursday when they face Damac.
