  1. Are we seeing a ‘new’ Neymar?

    We are used to seeing Neymar do impressive things on a football pitch, and he was at it again on Tuesday with an outrageous assist as part of a stellar showing as Paris St-Germain beat RB Leipzig to secure their place in the Champions League final.

    But it was his attitude – something that has often drawn criticism – that most impressed the pundits observing the game in Lisbon.

    Lyon had a gameplan against Manchester City and Juventus.

    Against City they were dismissed as a team that could not compete. Nothing could have been further from the truth. They have a way of playing with three at the back and they have great mobility and pace in the wide area.

    Memphis Depay has shown great leadership qualities and then they have Karl Toko Ekambi who played exceptionally well against Juventus.

  4. ‘We start from scratch’

    Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick wants his side to forget their 8-2 demolition of Barcelona and “start from scratch” tonight.

    “Less than 100% will not be enough,” he said.

    “The game starts from scratch. My team is focused. We have set big goals.

    “But it is a game starting at 0-0 and we have to play with the same intensity as against Barca.”

    Two teams with their eyes on the biggest prize in club football.

    One, a dominant swashbuckling force that scores goals for fun and possesses one of the most deadly strikers in Europe.

    The other, the ultimate underdog – sweeping aside heavyweights Juventus and Manchester City to put themselves within one win of the Champions League final.

    The tournament has delivered and then some since football’s restart and this tie has the potential to be another Champions League thriller.
