Barcelona forward Neymar: “Who we play now doesn't matter to me"
Neymar is glad Barcelona have returned to form and isn’t bothered who they draw in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.
Gerardo Martino’s side beat Celtic 6-1 to top Group H on Wednesday night. Neymar scored a hat-trick - his first goals in the UEFA Champions League - with Pedro, Cristian Tello and Gerard Piqué also netting.
After defeats against Ajax and Athletic Bilbao, the 21 year-old welcomed a much needed victory.
“We are very pleased to finish top of the group because that was our objective right from the outset,” he told uefa.com. “Now we must continue playing in this style if we can.
“Two defeats in a row for us, in the UEFA Champions League and the league, meant a big win was very welcome. Who we play now doesn't matter to me – we'll just treat the challenge with respect and play to win.”
Barcelona will find out who they face in the Round of 16 on Monday. They can draw Bayer Leverkusen, Galatasaray, Olympiacos, Manchester City, Schalke 04, Arsenal or FC Zenit.
