The Barcelona forward has revealed he was given a tape of the defender so he knew how to avoid getting provoked when Brazil met Portugal in SeptemberBarcelona star Neymar says he knows how to handle Pepe after being shown a video tape of the Real Madrid defender.
Neymar, 21, could make his Clasico debut on Saturday and is likely to face the rugged centre-back, who he was up against in September's friendly between Brazil and Portugal, which the Selecao won 3-1.
But the attacker says he will not be "provoked" as he knows how to deal with the controversial Portuguese's style of play following a tape sent by the Brazil Football Confederation (CBF) before the friendly.
“They sent me a video and they also sent one to [fellow Brazil international] Thiago Silva so that we didn’t get provoked," he told Globo TV.
“It wasn’t just for my sake, it was for the sake of my team-mates too."
Neymar has scored two goals in eight league games for Barcelona this season.
