Neymar: 'Never thought of PSG elimination'

Despite being minutes away from elimination at the hands of Atalanta, Neymar maintains he ‘never even thought’ about that eventuality for PSG.

Atalanta were 1-0 up through a Mario Pasalic goal until the 89th minute, but Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored twice in stoppages to secure the 2-1 Champions League quarter-final win.

“I never even thought about elimination,” Neymar told RMC Sport.

“Nothing will stop me thinking that we will reach the Final. It was tough, but we are a great team and a real family. It was impossible to think that we might be eliminated.”

Paris Saint-Germain are through to the Champions League semi-final for the first time in over 20 years.
