Xavi: Two-Goal Ronaldo Wasn't Better Than Neymar!

Xavi Hernandez: Two-Goal Real Madrid Star Cristiano Ronaldo Wasn't Better Than Paris Saint-Germain's Neymar!

By David Kappel - Feb 19, 2018 01:31 PM @kappilinho

Former FC Barcelona captain Xavi Hernandez has insisted that Neymar had a better game than two-goal Cristiano Ronaldo when Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain clashed last week.

The 38-year-old, who now plays for Al-Sadd in Qatar, believes Neymar had a far better game than the Portuguese despite PSG losing 3-1 to Los Blancos in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 clash last Wednesday.

"They said that Cristiano was still better than Neymar," Xavi told Brazilian publication So Foot, as quoted by Marca.

"No, no, it's unfair. What did Ronaldo do in the game, scored a penalty and a knee goal...

"But what about the dangerous situations created by Neymar? And the counterattacks that he launched, the fear that he sowed in Madrid?"

Xavi also insisted that Real were lucky to finish the game with a two-goal lead after PSG dominated parts of the encounter.

"It's inexplicable, Real Madrid didn't play, but still won..." he continued.

"In this match, there were several phases, very different from each other, and there was a moment in which PSG dominated clearly. During those siege minutes in the Madrid area, it was at that precise moment that PSG should have scored the second."

"A counterattack was enough to take the victory... F**k. You almost think it's an injustice that PSG lost by such a big margin because it was a game that should have ended 1-1, 2-2 or 2-1 for PSG."

PSG will host Real for the second leg on 6 March, when they will be looking to prevent successive UCL Last 16 knockouts by overturning the 3-1 first leg defeat.

It's now clear that this Xavi have a vandetta against Ronaldo. I mean for what? It's not Cristiano's fault that he didn't win any Ballon D. He keep Criticising every success of CR7.......my word to him are ''Go to hell Xavi''
