PSG's Neymar lies on the ground during the French League One soccer match between Paris-Saint-Germain and Montpellier at the Parc des Princes stadium in Paris, Saturday Feb. 1, 2020.

"I can't guarantee 100 percent that he'll be able to play against Dortmund", Thomas Tuchel said on Wednesday.

"Since the arrival of the Qatari group in Paris, Thomas Tuchel is the worst coach that PSG has had".

"He is way off the big coaches like Ancelotti, Pep Guardiola and Klopp".

Neymar has missed three of PSG's four Champions League knockout matches during his time at the club.

"We won't take any risks, obviously, but at the same time we'll put out a strong team", Tuchel had said at his pre-match press conference on Friday, prior to naming his squad.

Neymar missed last season's surprise Champions League last-16 defeat by Manchester United with a foot injury, and also sat out the second leg of the loss to Real Madrid at the same stage of the competition in 2018.

Similarly, loss was endured at the quarter-final phase of the Coupe de la Ligue - Guingamp knocking senseless the heavyweights after winning as well as racking up 2 late fines in a 2-1 outcome at PSG's house arena.

And with Borussia Dortmund up following in Europe in the round of 16, Fernandez really hopes PSG do not experience a comparable destiny this period as they want to browse their method with the knock-out rounds. "The owners expect to get to the final".
