Neymar: I know how to defeat Pepe
With the Clasico just around the corner, Brazilian star Neymar feels he knows how to defeat Pepe and give the Catalans the bragging rights in Spain.
Barcelona talisman Neymar says he knows how to handle Pepe after being shown a videotape of the Real Madrid defender. Reports GOAL.com.
Neymar, 21, could make his Clasico debut on Saturday and is likely to face the rugged centre-back, who he was up against in September's friendly between Brazil and Portugal, which the Seleção won 3-1.
But the attacker says he will not be "provoked" as he knows how to deal with the controversial Portuguese's style of play following a tape sent by the Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) before the friendly.
“They sent me a video and they also sent one to Thiago Silva so that we didn’t get provoked," he told Globo TV.
“It wasn’t just for my sake, it was for the sake of my team-mates too."
Neymar has scored two goals in eight league games for Barcelona this season.
