Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has warned Real Madrid that their UEFA Champions League title defence is under severe threat ahead of the two European titans’ last-16 encounter.
The pick of the first knockout-round matches sees French champions PSG make the trip to the Santiago Bernabeu to face the Galacticos in the first-leg on February 14, before the reverse fixture at Parc des Princes on March 6.
And while Los Blancos are looking for an unprecedented third successive European Cup crown, Neymar is confident Les Parisians have what it takes to dethrone the Galacticos.
“We know it will be a difficult game. Real Madrid's players have been playing together for many years and aspire to their third consecutive title,” Neymar said while on a winter training camp in Doha.
“But I know we can beat them.
“We want to make history and we will do everything possible to defeat them.”
