Neymar believes Barcelona have what it takes to lift the Champions League trophy in Lisbon.

Barcelona have won the competition four times but haven't won it since 2011. They've also been runners up three times.

The Brazilian is playing in the Champions League for the first time this season and is looking to lift the trophy with his first attempt.

Neymar has scored three goals so far in the Champions League, and has played in every game in the group.

Barcelona take on English giants Manchester City in the knock out stage and will have to be at their best to make it through to the next round.

City fell at the first hurdle last year going out in the group stage after disappointing results, whereas Barcelona went out in the semi-finals after being destroyed 7-0 on aggregate by eventual winners Bayern Munich.

Former Santos man Neymar believes his side will do their best to win the trophy.

Neymar told FourFourTwo: "The Champions League would be very special for me.

"I want to win it and together with my teammates we’ll do everything we can to do just that.

"Manchester City are a really strong side with outstanding players, and we're going to have to be at the top of our game to get through the tie."

Neymar will be looking to impress throughout the remainder of the tournament as he plays for a place in the Brazil squad for the World Cup.

Neymar said: "The World Cup is the most important competition of our lives.

"We Brazilians are in debt with our country, as the first time it was played in Brazil we didn’t win it. The whole country is living the dream and we don't want to disappoint.

"God will be on our side to help us make the dream come true."
