After two weeks away for the international break, the Saudi Pro League returned over the past few days, with anticipation having built in the days leading up to matchday six as another global superstar prepared to make his bow in the Middle East.

Having returned from injury, Neymar made his debut for leaders Al-Hilal on Friday, and the Brazil international didn't disappoint as he shone in his new side's 6-1 thrashing of Al-Riyadh. There were wins, too, for Al-Ittihad and Al-Ahli, who remain just one point behind the early pacesetters.
