Then Neymar, starting a game for the first time since his injury in February, added a stunning second goal in the 63rd minute

Neymar left Aleksander Dragovic on the floor with a dragback and then scored with a shot between Lindner's legs.

Six minutes later, substitute Roberto Firmino set Philippe Coutinho clear down the left and he curled his shot wide of Lindner for the third.
