Neymar, who will compete in the ACL, will try to win the “South America + Europe + Asia” for the first time in history

Neymar’s transfer to Al-Hilal will allow him to play in the upcoming 2023-2024 Asian Football Confederation Champions League (ACL). Cristiano Ronaldo can join if he passes the preliminary round, while Al-Hilal’s Neymar and Al-Ittihad’s Karim Benzema went straight to the group stage.

Al-Hilal announced on the 16th (Korea Standard Time) that he beat Brazil’s number 10 Pele to become the top scorer with a two-season contract with Neymar, a former star of Paris Saint-Germain. The recruitment was completed on the 15th local time in France, and the known transfer fee is 90 million euros (about 131.6 billion won).

Neymar can participate in the ACL right away from September, and the ACL has changed its schedule from this season to the Chunchun Festival, so there was no game in the first half of this year, and the group stage will begin in the second half.

Neymar’s team, Al Hilal, will compete in the ACL for the new season as the Saudi King’s Cup (FA Cup) winners, with Al-Ittihad and Al-Faiha also going straight to the finals, and Al-Nasr also qualified for the final. This means that Al-Ittihad’s Neymar, Kalidou Koulibaly, Ruben Neves, Sergei Millingkovic-Savic, Maukong and Al-Ittihad’s Benzema, N’Golo Kante and Fabinho will advance to the ACL, and Ronaldo, Sadio Mane, Alex Teles and Marcelo Brozovic will also be able to challenge to win if Al-Nasr passes the qualifiers.

Neymar won the 2011 Copa Libertadores in Santos, Brazil. In The 2014-2015 season, he won the UEFA Champions League (UCL) with Barcelona. The fact that he won both South American and European competitions is why Neymar has a different status than other superstars of his time. Neymar’s great international popularity was also possible because he was holding onto South America.
Neymar challenges new record. It is the world’s first three continental summits. So far, there are a total of 12 players who have won both Copa and UCL, and no players have added continental cups from other continents. Of the 12 players, Hawke Jr. (Alayan), Carlos Tevez (Shanghai Sunhwa), and Hamires (Jiangsu Sunning) played in Asia, but did not win the ACL.
