Former Barcelona man Xavi has hit out at Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting that Neymar played a better game.

Cristiano scored twice as Real came back from 1-0 down against PSG to win 3-1 in the Champions League round of 16.

The Portugal international scored the equalising penalty just before half-time, before giving his side the lead in the last ten minutes.

However, Xavi was not impressed with the 33-year-old’s performance, claiming that Neymar had a better performance.

“They said that Cristiano was still better than Neymar,” Xavi told Marca.

“No, no, it’s unfair. What did Ronaldo do in the game, scored a penalty and a knee goal.

“But what about the dangerous situations created by Neymar?

“And the counter-attacks that he launched, the fear that he sowed in Madrid?”
