Real Madrid coach Zidane: Barcelona weaker without Neymar

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane believes Neymar's departure has hurt Barcelona.

Real meet Barca today in the first-leg of the Super Cup at the Nou Camp.

"Whoever plays tomorrow will not be Neymar, because he is very good, but they will do well," Zidane stated to the assembled press.

"There are not many players like Neymar."

What won't change is the Blaugrana's style of player, which Zidane feels to be the major threat posed to Real in Catalonia.

"On the contrary, they have made changes but in the end Barcelona are Barcelona," he noted.

"We know how they play and that's not going to change, their plans will not change."
