Di Maria is first in line to take Neymar’s place against Real Madrid

  • Unai Emery may be remaining optimistic and he may be holding out hope of having Neymar available to him for the second leg of Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League tie against Real Madrid, but the player’s father has said there is no chance of the forward being back in time.

    As such, Emery must start considering alternative options, such as Angel Di Maria, who is the first in line to take the Brazilian’s place.

    Since the start of 2018, Di Maria has been PSG’s best player and has managed 14 goals and 15 assists in the 30 matches he has played this campaign, an impressive return considering he is not a guaranteed starter.

    In his past 12 appearances he has scored 10 goals, including a hat-trick against Sochaux in the cup.
