We are all prepared for this shock, we have a great team to play a very good game. I like to play these big matches, against the big teams. This is when high quality players need to appear. We are working hard to make a great game. (…) Each match has its story. Our biggest goal is the Champions League, that’s clear. Sometimes we can’t master all the details. It’s like the World Cup, it’s the one who makes the fewest mistakes who goes to the end. We are not here to walk, we are here to work. We want to win all the titles. We are sad to have been eliminated from the Coupe de France.asserted Neymar. It remains to be seen whether the PSG will succeed in reviving against the Bayern.
