Neymar talking about his assist to Sergi Roberto in the Champions League game against PSG:

“My first thought was not to be a hero, but to kick. But I saw two Barcelona players moving: who were Messi and Piqué. I had not seen Sergi Roberto. So much so, that I played to both.

At the time, I thought it was Piqué who scored the goal. After that I saw Sergi Roberto coming in behind. I spoke to him (Sergi Roberto): “Enter the area; you will make the goal. Get in the area!” Because I was in his place on the rebound because he is taller. Then he came in and scored.”
