Neymar: Barca trio better than Madrid’s

Neymar feels that he, Messi and Suarez have a lot more chemistry and understand each other better in comparison to Ronaldo, Benzema and Bale. 

Neymar's comments come after Madrid were beaten 4-3 in their Champions League match against Schalke 04 on Tuesday. However, despite the loss, the defending champions still advanced to the quarter-finals with a 5-4 aggregate win. 

To make matters worse, Madrid were also beaten 1-0 by Athletic Bilbao in a La Liga match on Saturday. 

"We're getting to know each other better and better," Neymar said at an event for 'Futbol Base MIC' on Wednesday. "Suarez and Messi are two players who need no introduction. Messi is the best in the world and Suarez is one of the best too. It's wonderful to play alongside them."

While Neymar once again reiterated that Barcelona's trio is better than Madrid's, he added that he did not want to dwell on the subject for too long. 

"I think so, but I'd rather not talk about our opponents, we focus on moving forward with our games," the 23-year-old said. 

Despite having a lot to say about Madrid, Neymar has his eyes set on handing Los Blancos another loss during the 'El Clasico' clash in two weeks' time. 

"It will be really decisive," Neymar said. "We'll approach it like a final. We're only thinking about winning. Leaving Real Madrid four points adrift? We have to focus on our own season. There is still a long way to go."
