Gareth Bale and Neymar are fast enough to outrun virtually almost any defensive player. They often put themselves in position where only the running speed matters. And even though they share same fast pace style when it comes to overcoming an opponent’s defender we can see some difference.
Well, it is true that they are both fast. But let’s see what happens when expectation and reality do not meet each other. We all remember that run of the Welsh footballer against Barcelona.
He just put the ball way in front of him and virtually outrun the defender for scoring the goal. And it is Neymar who wanted to do the same lately but here the things did not look the same, not at all.
