Champions League: As Real Madrid advances, Zidane seems to have the answers

Champions League: As Real Madrid advances, Zidane seems to have the answers

Last year's Champions League and La Liga double winners had a hard first half of the 2017-18 season, falling well behind runaway La Liga leaders Barcelona, exiting the Copa del Rey to humble neighbours Leganes, and also stumbling in the group stage when losing 3-1 at Tottenham Hotspur in November. Now the talk is starting about who is going to succeed Unai Emery at PSG.

PSG have failed once again to reach the semifinals of the Champions League. "PSG disappeared without leaving a trace", bemoaned l'Equipe.

The French champions were eliminated in the last 16 twice in a row after four consecutive quarter-final exits.

In Ligue 1 however, PSG lead the standings by a massive 14 points after 28 games.

In a unusual way it was as if the Germany worldwide was talking about a group and a team he wasn't even part of - and perhaps that tells the truth of the story. It is clear that this mass spending is to have the French side competing at the higher levels in the UEFA Champions League - Europe's most prestigious club competition.

"You can not buy ideas".

The outcry of Arsenal fans come after the club lost to Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final, again to City in the league and more recently against Brighton & Hove Albion. "What makes me proud, though, was everybody's effort".

"Now is not the time to talk about change, everyone is upset".

Zinedine Zidane made a decision to play Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio against the Ligue 1 giants - but the pair impressed in large spells.

"I think over there we had the chance, it was 50-50, but we didn't take advantage of that", he added, referring to PSG's 3-1 defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu.

It was Verratti's third dismissal in the Champions League, and it appeared to seal his team's fate as they already were 1-0 down after Cristiano Ronaldo's opener.

Al-Khelaifi's beIN Sports owns the exclusive global distribution rights for television coverage of the French league, and the network is now in the process of negotiating new worldwide deals.

"Neymar is an important player for us".

Adrien Rabiot (Paris Saint-Germain midfielder): "I think we can regret what happened in the first match, in Madrid". Either the manager needs to reinvigorate the squad with more aggressive philosophy or Al-Khelaifi can continue breaking the bank for new players to no avail.
