Neymar always confident PSG would overcome Atalanta

Neymar insists he was always confident PSG would overcome Champions League opponents Atalanta.

PSG looked certain to endure more heartbreak in Europe's marquee competition with Atalanta leading via Mario Pasalic in the dying embers of the match until Marquinhos and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored in injury time.

“I never even thought about elimination," Neymar told RMC Sport.

“Nothing will stop me thinking that we will reach the Final. It was tough, but we are a great team and a real family.

"It was impossible to think that we might be eliminated."
