Zinedine Zidane Names PSG's Most Important Player, And It's Not Neymar

But while Emery would not confirm nor deny if he wanted Ronaldo to join him in Paris, he confirmed he's happy with having the former Barcelona attacker on board. He may be beginning his decline, but there is life in him yet.

As for PSG, they are looking to lift the trophy for the first time.

Madrid, however, will be buoyed by the momentum of their 5-2 win over Real Sociedad on Saturday.

Ronaldo thinks that Isco is slowing down the tempo of the game by taking too many touches.

"PSG? This is what any team would want". "Maybe we lacked a bit of spark, it's possible", he said at the end of the game. And he is delivering on the pitch, scoring at a ratio of a goal a game in a Paris shirt.

Lose and he will nearly certainly be relieved of his duties at season's end, as there'll be nothing left for Real Madrid to play for - in February.

"People think that PSG are already in quarters because Madrid runs through a bad time - no, it's not like that", Silva said.

(1) Cristiano Ronaldo is the Champions League GOAT, and Cristiano Ronaldo is back.

The hosts continued their ideal T20I run to make it to the tri-series final which will be played in Auckland on February 21. I was hoping to be better than a run-a-ball with five overs to go and then really kick on, but it never happened.

"If Real have the best players in the world in each position, then revenue won't be a problem", Perez told AFP in 2016. "At Real Madrid you have to be the best in the world and Neymar is".

And Zidane is well aware of PSG's "stunning" form.

It's not just a place in the quarterfinals at stake for PSG and Madrid.

Unai Emery's men were paired with Madrid in a mouth-watering tie but should they go all the way to the final in Kiev, Cavani wants to follow in the footsteps of Zidane - whose famous volley lit up Madrid's 2002 win over Bayer Leverkusen - and Mandzukic, who produced a stunning bicycle kick as Juventus were beaten by Los Blancos in Cardiff a year ago.

Our experience in the Champions League has changed.

Reigning European champions Real (647.6 million euros) made nearly 200 million euros more in turnover than PSG (486.2 million) a year ago, according to Deloitte.

They both sit on the top with five Ballon D'Ors each- which is quite a stunning haul considering previous records of three Ballon d'Or won by Michel Platini, Johan Cruyff, and Marco van Basten. The Madrid defense has struggled this season. Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane appear fit and ready, but the absence of right-back Dani Carvajal because of a suspension - ironically for trying to clear his bookings in the group stage - could open up the back line. It's the result of a whole year of work.
