Neymar has warned Paris Saint-Germain will have to be at their best if they are to get the better of Manchester United in next week’s Champions League match.
Thomas Tuchel’s side are out for revenge against the Red Devils, who beat them 2-1 in their first match of the competition in Paris.
After a disappointing 2-2 draw against Bordeaux on Saturday, though, Neymar has warned they must step up their game when they travel to Old Trafford in midweek.
“We know the importance of the ChampionsLeague game on Wednesday,” he told Canal+. “This is decisive. We didn’t play well against Leipzig (in a 1-0 victory on Tuesday), but we managed to win.
“On Wednesday we are going to try to haveour best game, play well, but we need to improve certain details, play more as a team, be more organised, otherwise it is going to be difficult.”
Bordeaux took the lead on Saturday after Timothee Pembele’s 10th-minute own goal. Neymar would then levelfrom the penalty spot before Moise Kean gave PSG the lead, butYacine Adli pulled Bordeaux level again in the second half.
“We had a timid match. We managed to score goals, but we lacked certain details,” Neymar said of his side’s performance.
“We must improve on that, because if not, if it is in the league, it is a league where normally we manage to win a lot of games. If we can’t do that, it is going to be tough in the league as well as in the Champions League.”
The Brazil international was also asked about his thoughts on the passing of former Argentina and Napoli star Diego Maradona.
He replied: “Maradona is a football artist. He was someone very important for football, Maradona represented a lot for sport, the world is crying a lot.”
