Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas Moura admits it’s going to be tough to stop Barcelona and their superstar Lionel Messi in the Champions League on Tuesday.
PSG finished second in their group, behind Arsenal, which has seen them draw the Catalans in the Champions League last-16.
Moura is fully aware of the challenge that awaits the Parisians in the first leg at Parc des Princes, and joked that it’s not possible to stop Messi by any legal means.
“Legally? For me it’s impossible to stop him. You have to tie him up,” he told The Associated Press.
“The tactic is preventing the ball getting to him. You must be very, very organised.”
He added: “No team is unbeatable, but of course for me they are the favorites. They are the best team in the world, you have to respect them.”
