The 26-year-old and his colleagues were on the end of a 3-1 defeat to Cristiano Ronaldo and company, which has set up the second leg of the Round of 16 clash to be a mouthwatering affair.

Neymar, who came in for some criticism after the match, has suggested that PSG lacked "maturity" late the second half.

"I think we took a step backwards at various moments," he told AS.

"We should have been calmer and we didn't have the maturity we needed in the later stages of the second half.

"The team needs that little bit extra and we have to accept that. We didn't put in a bad game but we need to improve if we are to have a chance of turning this around.

"It's going to be difficult but not impossible. Last season, we were in a far more difficult situation to make it to the next round."

Well put..maturity is lacking and the French league isn't that competitive like la liga and the English premiership. There's no leader in your team hence the defeat. Madrid will not throw away a 3-1 advantage.

WHEN YOU LEFT BARCA FOR THESE IDIOTS NEY, DIDN'T YOU THINK THE TEAM as a whole would lack maturity, experience and the calmness to handle big stage games against teams like Barca, madrid or were you too stupid to care? look boy PSG is very far from stomping any feet in UCL, ask ManCity how long it took them even with all their money. your were plain stupid leaving Barca thinking you'd help PSG conquer Europe. If I were you i'd sooner go back to spain and play for Los Blancos.
