In manga , shikamaru is better now . He even possesed offensive jutsu like kage nui
He can stand with Neji , but won't win
Shikamaru is in Chuunin level , chuunin : ability of leadership , intelligence and highly skilled
But Neji is in Jounin level , Jounin : excellent in leadership , intelligence , skill and experience
I don't think Shikamaru can win a bloodline genius with jounin level ability ...
