Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes says he has a plan to stop free-scoring Neymar and his colleagues in their UEFA Champions League encounter with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night.

The Bavarian giants were humiliated 3-0 by the Ligue 1 giants in September, with that loss signalling the end of Carlo Ancelotti's reign at the German club.

Heynckes, 72, says that he does not want a repeat of the previous fixture and plans to contain Neymar and his teammates with the same tactic he used against Messi and FC Barcelona in 2013.

"It's only possible collectively," he said at a press conference, as quoted by FourFourTwo.

"I know Neymar very well because I've often watched Barcelona in recent years. He's a player who dribbles, he's dangerous, creative and likes to get involved in the game.

"Mbappe is 18 years old and what he's got is incredible.

"We'll try to solve these things as a collective. It wasn't easy against Messi and (Andres) Iniesta in 2013, either. But these are just human beings.

"And our strikers aren't that bad; the opposing defence must also think about how to cope with that."
