- Paris Saint-Germain will travel to Man United in the Champions League on Wednesday
- PSG and RB Leipzig sit on six points, three behind United with two games
- Thomas Tuchel’s team has had a hard time finding their dazzling form lately
- PSG drew 2-2 against Bordeaux in Ligue 1 on Saturday
Neymar has warned his Paris Saint-Germain teammates that they will have to improve dramatically if they are to stay ahead of Manchester United.
The giants of Ligue 1 travel to United for a crisp Champions League showdown on Wednesday evening. There is still a lot to play in order to qualify for the knockout round.
PSG currently have six points at RB Leipzig, three behind United, just two games in Champions League Group H, and a loss to the Red Devils could put them in a treacherous position.
Neymar and PSG drew 2-2 against Bordeaux in Ligue 1 on Saturday
And Thomas Tuchel’s side are in bad shape in the European encounter after they drew 2-2 against Bordeaux in Ligue 1 on Saturday.
Neymar, whose PSG side have only won two of their last five games – including an incredibly nervous 1-0 win over Leipzig last time in Europe – were certainly not happy with the French giants’ recent performances.
‘We played a shy game. We managed to score but we missed some details, ”Neymar told Canal + after PSG’s draw with Bordeaux.

‘We have to improve because otherwise, whether in the league or in the Champions League, we have to do better. We usually win more games.
‘If we don’t manage that, it will be complicated in the league as in the Champions League.
‘We know how important the game on Wednesday is, like the game against Leipzig, where we didn’t play well even though we won.
“On Wednesday we will try to play our best game to play well, but we have to improve, play more as a team and be more organized, otherwise it will be very difficult.”
The Brazilian star was unhappy with PSG’s recent performances across all competitions
PSG were lucky enough to get all three points the last time they faced Leipzig at home in the Champions League.
The Bundesliga giants were the better side for most of the game but couldn’t punish PSG, who took the win thanks to an early Elymar penalty.
In the meantime, United meet on Sunday 3-2 in the Premier League after two goals behind Southampton on Wednesday.
