Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 11/02/2018

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal has made a shocking confession about Paris Saint-Germain attacker ahead of their Champions League showdown on Wednesday.

The defender admits “there’s no magic formula to stop Neymar” as Real Madrid “just have to hope he has an off-day.”

Carvajal is suspended for the tie against the French Ligue 1 leaders and one of Achraf  Hakimi and Nacho Fernandez will be charged with the responsibility of keeping Neymar at bay as Carvajal is suspended.

 “I don’t know who out of the two will play, but they’re both prepared,” he told AS.

“There’s no magic formula to stop Neymar. We just have to hope that he has an off-day.

“There are no favourites in a tie like this, it’s very even and these are two games that will be decided by small details. We’ll try not to make mistakes and be successful in their box.

“Criticism? We haven’t been stung by it. We’re self-critical and we know that we haven’t had our best season.

“We can all give more of ourselves, and on Wednesday we’ll give everything on the pitch.”

Real Madrid will be out for a win against the Le Parisians in a bid to claim a silverware this season having dumped out of the Copa Del Rey and 19 points behind the La Liga pacesetter Barcelona in the domestic league.
