The one that for many years was a headache for FC Barcelona may be one of their great allies for the crossing against Paris Saint-Germain in the knockout stages of the Champions League. This Monday’s draw left a morbid crossing in which it will be the reunion of Neymar with his old team in two games … that they can be only one.
And, the Brazilian has been attending every year since 2015 birthday of his sister Rafaella in Brazil on March 11, a date that since he left his native country is marked in red on his calendar. For one reason or another, ‘Ney’ has always managed to be penalized or injured on these dates and the big question is what will happen this year, since the celebration will be one day after the second leg between PSG and Barça on March 10.
In this way, what at the time was a real problem for the Barça team and highly criticized both by its fans and by the press, can be a great ally for the second match of the culés in the second round. What’s more, the situation seems propitious for Neymar to be absent.
The Brazilian has received two yellow cards in this group stage, so is under penalty and, if he is cautioned in the first leg that will mean his return to the Camp Nou, will not be able to be in the return match, being sanctioned for accumulating cards.
