Xavi has claimed that Ousmane Dembele is at the same level as Neymar following the French man’s impressive display for the Catalans in their Champions League win against Viktoria Plzen.
Dembele set up two goals in Barcelona’s 5-1 win over Viktoria Plzen in their Champions League group stage opener.
And following his performance Xavi showered plaudits on Dembele comparing him to Neymar.

Speaking after the win Xavi said:”He (Dembele) is happy, he provides assists, he makes a difference, he is a dagger down the flank and he is being decisive. I have seen few players with that ability in one on one.
“He is at the level of the best Neymar. He had suffered a lot in recent years and he deserves what he is now. There is no pure winger who can come out on both sides like he does.”
Dembele has been in hot form at the start of the 2022-23 campaign after signing a new contract at Barca in the summer.
He has one goal and four assists to his name from five appearances across all competitions and appears to have put the injury struggles that previously blighted his Camp Nou career firmly behind him.
