Neymar beating Messi and Ronaldo stats at 26 but needs silverware

David Beckham conceded Real Madrid face a tough task against in-form Paris Saint-Germain but he believes the blockbuster Champions League last-16 tie is the Spanish team's time to shine. "Cristiano deserved to win everything he's won in his career". He's scored 27 goals in 34 appearances for Barcelona but it's his all-round performances which have captivated football fans across the world. Although Messi is showing no signs of being on the wane, these next 12 months represent a flawless opportunity for Neymar to usurp Ronaldo.

The Brazilian has been in outstanding form so far this season and is the only player across the continent's top five leagues with more than 10 goals and assists.

They will have to make do without Neymar, who has been left at home to rest ahead of the first leg against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu next week and after his lavish 26th birthday celebrations last weekend. "The little difference between them is that Messi, with the ball, one on one, or even against two, is hard to stop", he added.

Indeed, 2018 will be the first year that Neymar take a shot at the Ballon d'Or without Messi by his side.

The Brazil global has admitted that he is happy to be facing Ronaldo and not Barcelona's Lionel Messi in the Champions League round of 16 first leg next week.
