Neymar shines the light in defeat

like dislike


Paris Saint-Germain were defeated at the Santiago Bernabeu and will have to overturn a 3-1 deficit at the Parc des Princes. Having guided Barcelona to an astonishing comeback at the Camp Nou last year, Neymar knows exactly what to do.

Just over a year ago, Neymar and Barcelona accomplished one of the most spectacular feats ever witnessed in the Champions League. An epic night that saw the Catalans thrash Paris Saint-Germain 6-1 at the Camp Nou to come back from a seemingly unquestionable result (4-0) in the first leg.

Fast-forward to February 2018 and Neymar now spearheads the European hopes of the Ligue 1 giants, who have to overturn the 3-1 result to extend their continental hopes. Anything other than that, will be considered a complete failure for Emery's side.

On March 8, 2017, Neymar scored a brace and provided an assist to seal, alongside Lionel Messi, one of the most astonishing comebacks the competition has seen. Now, he must emerge as the sole leader of the team to dethrone the reigning champions and progress to the quarter-finals.

An almost identical situation to that of last season for the Brazilian, if not more accessible. The Parisians will be backed by their supporters at the Parc des Princes as they look to score at least two goals, while not conceding any. Difficult, but not impossible.
