After missing the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 matchup against FC Barcelona, Neymar will be back in the lineup for Paris Saint-Germain in their quarterfinal matchup against FC Bayern Munich.
The 29-year-old saw some time before the FIFA international break when he came on as a substitute against Olympique Lyonnais. After the break, Neymar entered the starting eleven where he didn’t look his best, but neither did the entire squad as they fell 1-0 to Lille OSC.
“After six weeks he was very excited to start a match,” Pochettino said. “He’s an emotional player, he likes to play, he likes to fight, he’s a competitor. He did not deserve this red, he was excluded for various reasons, but he knows he has to channel himself. I hope that tomorrow everything will be fine, that we can have a very good game, and that the whole team will deliver the performance that we hope.”
