I don't know what Neymar will do, admits Silva

I don't know what Neymar will do, admits Silva

The Uruguayan and his Paris Saint-Germain team-mates face a stern test of their European credentials in the last-16 first leg against double defending champions Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

It's not a stretch to suggest Real Madrid have dominated the Champions League in recent years.

"In my opinion the great players have to play at this club". It is the new order in Europe, [other] clubs see their reign in danger. "They have a really good team, an excellent squad".

"My relationship with Real Madrid ended". Ronaldo is emboldened by a hat-trick on Saturday against Real Sociedad, a result that cheered Madrid in a season where their inconsistency - particularly at home - has already collapsed the defence of their league title and put them out of the Copa del Rey.

"To play against Neymar, there is no magic formula", Carvajal said, via AS. Wednesday night will see the reigning champions Real Madrid take on Paris Saint-Germain - a team ready on all fronts to conquer the mighty Los Blancos.

PSG's trident - MCN - Mbappe, Cavani, Neymar took a vital part in their club's 74-goal tally in all competitions this season, which puts them huge 36 goals in front of their counterpart trio - BBC - Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo, which is set to be a key battle between the two sides. The Real maestro has netted 19 goals in his last 11 games in the competition, including in every single game this season. "I think we can knock [PSG] out".

Always intriguing first round draw drew together a couple of the giants, PSG with Real Madrid and Chelsea with Barcelona.

PSG coach Unai Emery has generally used a 4-3-3 system for much of the season, utilising Neymar from a wide left position where he is given the freedom to roam inside and collect the ball in tight spaces in the final third.

In QSI's second season, it nearly doubled to €400m - including sponsorship deals questioned by UEFA's Financial Fair Play authorities - and further progress saw their total income peak at €527m before dropping to €486m a year ago. "We need to learn from that and make sure that it doesn't happen again". Zinedine Zidane faced harsh criticism this season over his stubborn selection choices but the French legend is unlikely to ring too many changes to his first team.

When the deadlock was finally broken it was none other than Neymar who broke it: the Brazilian twisting and turning before being fortunate to ricochet a shot in of one of the defenders and into the Toulouse goal.
