Real Madrid hoping to thrive on big occasion against Neymar's PSG

14 February, 2018, 19:34 | Author: Anita Tucker

The club will face Neymar's team tomorrow in the first of two games in the Champions League.

"That is what is important".

If Real can sustain another Champions League challenge and Portugal go deep into World Cup, then expect Ronaldo to be there or thereabouts again when the Goal 50 returns at the end of the calendar year.

This is the first time that Zidane, a World Cup victor with France, has come up against a side from his home country as a coach.

A repeat performance over two legs against the star-studded quality of PSG and Madrid's woes will only deepen further - and Neymar will be edging closer to his next tattoo.

Peoples lives are being shattered by mere allegation
More importantly, though, the fact that this leaked out so quickly suggests Kelly has lost the confidence of his staff. But there was no sign that a move was imminent, according to the people with knowledge of the conversations.

"[Neymar and Ronaldo] are both quick, very strong one-on-one, they play quickly and put a lot of intensity into their games", said PSG winger Angel Di Maria, a Champions League victor alongside Ronaldo at Madrid in 2014. That fan is Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who told AS that he would not like to see Neymar dressed in white. "The French will be happy for me to play in their championship and the media will campaign in my favour for the Ballon d'Or". "I am not going to compare them, I'm talking about my player", said Zidane.

The visitors: Paris Saint-Germain, the upstarts who bulldozed soccer's transfer record to hitch Neymar to the Qatari-funded mission to join soccer's elite.

But PSG, runaway leaders in Ligue 1, have Neymar in their ranks and the Brazilian, alongside the lethal Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe, would love to get one over on Barcelona's fierce old foes.

His recent hat-trick against Real Sociedad however boosted his numbers and he now has 23 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions.

The Portuguese legend was struggling to overcome Messi as the best in the world and felt that his club simply wasn't doing enough to help him out - but believed PSG would.

Thiago Motta is out in one of few concerns for PSG boss Unai Emery.

PSG come into the tie looking the stronger of the two sides, but that form may count for relatively little over the two legs against a team that have won the Champions League in three of the last four seasons.
