- Real Madrid will host Paris Saint-Germain in the knockout stage of the Champions League
- Neymar took time out of his preparations to get some fresh tattoos Champions League inspired tattoo
Paris Saint-Germain star forward Neymar took time out of his preparations to face Real Madrid on Wednesday evening February 14 to get some fresh tattoos Champions League inspired tattoo.
The £198m world-record player is looking to bring Champions League glory to the French capital this season and his latest tattoo was about his elite Europe competition that he last won in 2015 with former employers Barcelona.
Ahead of PSG clash at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, Neymar opted to get a constant reminder of what he wants to lift more than anything this season.
The Brazil captain scored the Catalan side's third goal in that Champions League final against Juventus after earlier goals from Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez cancelled out Alvaro Morata's strike.
Tattoo artist Adao Rosa posted the results of Neymar's latest ink on Instagram as the Brazilian star will hope it is the start of many Champions League trophy tattoos.
Along with the trophy design, Neymar opted to add three swallows behind his left ear with the birds said to signify 'honour, respect, courage, freedom, dignity and trust'.
In the stand-out tie of the knockout stages, Madrid face a rampant PSG side that set multiple records as they blitzed the group stages.
Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani scored a glut of goals and will fancy their chances against a Madrid side that have struggled for form this season - the Champions League is the Spanish club's only remaining hope for silverware.
Madrid finished runners-up in their group behind Premier League side Tottenham after the English side blew Los Blancos away at Wembley.
Brazil left-full back Marcelo has expressed confidence that his compatriot Neymar Jr will join him at Real Madrid soon.
The 25-year-old sealed a move away from Spain in a world-record deal worth €222 million last summer having spent four years at Barcelona, scoring 68 goals in 123 appearances.
But the 29-year-old defender believes the Paris Saint Germain striker is poised to return to Spain but this time to play for the Galacticos.
