World’s most expensive player Neymar said Paris Saint-Germain can still qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals.
He came with this comment after his PSG’s losing 3-1 to Real Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 tie on Wednesday, AFP reports.
Adrien Rabiot had put the French side ahead, but Cristiano Ronaldo’s double strike and a Marcelo goal turned the game on its head in the Spanish capital.
“We didn’t play badly, but I think we need to be better if we want to eliminate Real Madrid,” added Neymar.
He was in the Barcelona side that lost 4-0 away to PSG in the first leg of the last 16 last season, before a stunning 6-1 victory in the return.
On PSG’s chances of beating Real in the return leg on March 6, he said: “I think it is difficult, but nothing is impossible. Last year I was in a much worse situation and we managed to get through. I hope we will be able to play better.”
