La Liga club Leganes have trolled Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar with a typically smart poster for Wednesday evening’s hosting of Real Madrid.
Neymar and PSG were in the Spanish capital last week for a Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie at the Bernabeu, which Zinedine Zidane’s side won 3-1 as the Brazilian was overshadowed by Blancos veteran Cristiano Ronaldo.
Well known for his social media smarts, Neymar was presumably impressed when the comms team at the suburban Madrid club made use of his disappointment to promote their rearranged La Liga clash with their much richer neighbours.

“Wednesday there is a Champions League gameweek at ‘Butarque de los Principes’ against Real Madrid. #OnRussianTime #NeymarBetterYouDontCome ,” the cheeky tweet said.
Leganes, of course, also enjoyed their recent trip to the Bernabeu, with the relatively humble side doing what PSG could not with a 2-1 victory to eliminate Zidane’s men from the Copa del Rey.
