They fell at the final hurdle against treble-winning Bayern Munich, but will be back for more in the current campaign and are due to open their quest for glory in a home date with Manchester United on Tuesday.
Neymar will be called upon to provide attacking inspiration once again in that contest, with fellow countryman Lucas backing a man he has played alongside at club and international level to push PSG into contention for more major honours.
A man who spent five years at Parc des Princes before linking up with Tottenham in January 2018 told Le Parisien of Neymar’s talent: “He's progressing every season. He's an impressive player. He started his career almost at the top but he continues to achieve great things. He's a top player.
“Paris is very lucky to haveNeymar. Of course, he will help them again this season, he wants to win the Champions League with PSG. There is nothing more to say.”
While Neymar remains on the books at PSG, the French giants have parted company with two other experienced South Americans.
Lucas is pleased to have another compatriotin London with him and believes a prolific Uruguayan frontman will deliver at Old Trafford once he is up to speed in the Premier League.
The Spurs forward added: “I'm happy for Thiago. He's closer to me here in London. I'm happy for him, he's one of the best defenders in the world, I've always said that. He plays for a great team.
“I’m happy for him and for Cavani too. It will undoubtedly be more difficult for him to play in thePremier League. There are a lot of great players.”
