Neymar will put on a big performance for PSG against Atalanta, says boss Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel is confident that Neymar will play a crucial role in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Wednesday for Paris Saint-Germain against Atalanta.

Neymar was on target in both legs as PSG dispatched Borussia Dortmund in the last 16 and has been in good form since returning to action after the cancelation of Ligue 1 in April in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

The international Brazil scored against Le Havre, Waasland-Beveren and Celtic in warm-up friends before scoring the winner against Saint-Etienne in the Coupe de France final.

Tuchel is betting on Neymar once again, particularly with Kylian Mbappe expected to be confined to the role of substitute after an ankle injury sustained during the meeting with Saint-Etienne.
