CAIRO - 23 December 2017: At a press conference in Doha, Paris Saint Germain`s winger Neymar Jr. said that he and his team want "to make history" in the game against Real Madrid in round 16 of the Champions League.
He also stated that it would be great to kick the White team out of the competition.
Real Madrid will meet Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the round which will take place next February.
"We know it will be a complicated match, because the Real Madrid players have been playing together for many years and aspire for their third consecutive win, but I know we can beat them. We want to make history and we will do everything possible to defeat them, "said the Brazilian player, who arrived this season at the Parc des Princes stadium after a controversial transfer of 222 million Euros, which is considered as a record figure in the transfer market.
"Getting it, not only depends on me, but also on my colleagues," said Neymar. "It is clear that the World Cup is very important for me, but first it is necessary to do things well with your team. The group must always be ahead of personal challenges."
Brazil was drawn with Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia in group E.
