FERRAN ZUERAS DIARIO AS

Barça's Brazilian midfielder Arthur Melo joined Ernesto Valverde in looking ahead to tomorrow's Champions League tie against Olympique Lyonnais.

Tricky tie: "We're fully focused and ready to play the game. We all know the risks but our hopes are high and that's the important thing".

Neymar's party: "Sometimes you make mistakes, and sometimes not. I knew what I was doing by going to the party and I'd like to say sorry if I offended anyone. The team and the coaching staff were worried about me. It was a difficult time. I'm giving the best I have and I know that I can improve a lot in every way. I needed help but now I am completely focused".

Playing in Europe's top club tournament 

The Champions League: "It's a special competition. At Wembley, I felt something incredible - a feeling I've never had before. Really, being involved in this competition shouldn't be any different, but we need to be totally focused. I dream a lot about the Champions League. I'm sure we are going to see a great game tomorrow - we'll be going out to win".

Coutinho: "He's a brilliant player - one of the best footballers in the world. He knows that in some games he hasn't played as well as he can but he's a player who can really help us a lot. What we need to do is have faith and belief in him - that's help him to get back to his best level".

Neymar on Real Madrid's radar again: "It's an option that he has to discuss with his family. I don't know what he'll choose to do in the future. I just wish him all the best whatever he does".
