Neymar Jr. who is one of the most effective players for Paris Saint Germain has called on his teammates to treat the Tuesday’s Champions League fixture against Napoli as a Champions League final.
PSG and Napoli are both placed in the Group C along with Liverpool and Red Star Belgrade. It is one of the tougher groups in the Champions League. Prior to the PSG vs Napoli fixture, PSG sits at the 3rd spot in the group with 4 points in 3 games. Napoli have 5 points in 3 games. And Liverpool lead the group with 6 points in 3 games. PSG’s fixture against Napoli can prove to be critical for the team. It is make or break for both the teams.
PSG has done really well in the Ligue 1 this season so far. However, the club has struggled in the Champions League and will be looking to put things right with a win over Napoli in the away fixture.
Neymar Jr. himself has been quite impressive for PSG this season. The Brazilian has scored 9 goals and is the 3rd highest goal scorer in the league. Neymar’s teammate Kylian Mbappe is the top scorer in Ligue 1 with 11 goals. The duo has established itself as one of the most prolific attack partnerships in the world.
Neymar and Mbappe will surely be looking forward to scoring producing goals in the fixture against Napoli and putting PSG back on track in the Champions League.
