Lucas Moura: Says PSG's hopes of progressing are still alive

The Ligue 1 giants twice came from behind in the opening leg of the tie at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night to peg Barca to a 2-2 draw.

Brazil international Moura was impressed by PSG's character in that encounter and feels a win is not beyond them at Camp Nou next week.

He told ESPN Brasil: "They are the favourites but we no doubt had a good game. We attacked them and showed courage.

"We were able to draw the game and I think we have the chance to get an even better result next week."

The 20-year-old, who joined PSG from native side Sao Paulo in January, is enjoying the chance to go up against European heavyweights like Barca so early in his career.

"It was a privilege to play against one of the best teams in the world," he added.

"It's an honor to play in the Champions League against a team like Barcelona despite the fact I'm so young."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
