Neymar, who has come out on the winning side of his legal struggles over his transfer to Barcelona, sent a message to Leo Messi with the Argentine embroiled in the fallout from a conviction for tax fraud: "Leo is my friend and I'm his biggest fan", said Neymar, pledging his teammate "all my support".

Catalan newspaper Mundo Deportivo also reported FC Barcelona's support for Messi, using Neymar's phrase: "Football without Messi isn't football".

Diario Sport's angle on the Euro 2016 focuses on the battle betwen Samuel Umtiti, Barça's latest defensive signing and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, while Mundo Deportivo has characterised the match as the perfect stage for Griezmann's revenge for the Milan Champions League final.
