Double Ronaldo goal helps Real beat PSG

Double Ronaldo goal helps Real beat PSG

For most of the game, Real Madrid was outplayed, under siege from a Ligue 1 side who in the second half failed to convert numerous opportunities to re-establish the lead they had taken in the 33rd minute of the game with a lovely strike from Adrien Rabiot.

"We'll try and go for it again this year", he said.

"Players like Neymar deserve better allies on the bench", wrote Rafa Cabeleira in El Pais.

The pressure on him is vast, with PSG's owners unlikely to look kindly on a second consecutive exit at this stage of the Champions League given the extent of their investment at the start of this season.

"They should have won the game comfortably". We can be satisfied with how the game went.

He will be partnered in the centre of PSG's defence by Presnel Kimpembe, sports daily L'Equipe claimed, with captain Thiago Silva being dropped. They're now fourth in La Liga and 17 points off first-place Barcelona.

Ronaldo's second strike came in the 83rd minute before a Marcelo strike ensured the reigning European champions a two-goal advantage ahead of the return leg of their last-16 tie on March 6.

The future of Neymar: "I don't know if Neymar will end up wearing the white in future. I am only thinking about the match", the Frenchman insisted. The Ligue 1 leaders acquitted themselves well until the final ten minutes, but they allowed Madrid too much space down their right channel and now face a real test of their credentials at home. He has scored 11 times in seven Champions League games this campaign, compared to 11 goals in 18 La Liga matches.

Lionel Messi ranks second in the goalscoring charts for Europe's elite knockout competition, clocking up 97 goals for Barcelona, enough to make him the second highest scorer in competition history and scorer of the most goals for a single club among all players not named Cristiano Ronaldo. The Portuguese has 43 goals in his last 43 appearances in the knockout phase. I have told him that he is 18 years old and he has to be calm and to become stronger, and to stay one year or more at Ajax.

Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain this season, was fortunate that he wasn't sent off when he dived for the second time despite being fouled by anyone. "He handles the pressure and responds on the field", he said.

But as Paris Saint-Germain failed to convert chances, Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice as Real Madrid came from behind to stun Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 in the first leg of their blockbuster Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday.

"We played a good game all the way through", Zidane said.
