Neymar thinks Barcelona has pretty much no chance of coming back against PSG
Way to boost confidence, Ney
No team has ever come back from four goals down in a Champions League knockout stage tie, so the task facing Barcelona is as tricky as they get.
The Catalan club was rocked by PSG 4-0 on Tuesday in their Round of 16 clash, leaving the team on the brink of a elimination.
You would hope the team, with unbelievable goal-scoring ability, still had confidence despite how unlikely it is that they come back. Star winger Neymar has faith, but he doesn’t seem to like his team’s chances.
Neymar said Barcelona has a one percent chance of advancing. So he is 99 percent sure his team is headed home?
On Instagram, Neymar wrote “While there is a one percent chance, we have 99 percent faith.”
So, I like this and I don’t. He seems confident by saying how much faith there is, but don’t put the chances at one percent. Maybe it is lost in translation, but it would be better to tell the fans to believe and that the team will give all it has for every second. This isn’t throwing in the towel, but this also isn’t the best way to give fans hope.

The backing of the club president has reportedly been the key
A spot in the semis goes to the victor
Both teams have a great chance to advance

This was a draw for both but not much better than a loss
