Swap Neymar for Ronaldo? I´m delighted with Brazilian - Emery

  • Yaya Sanogo was shown a yellow card during the Ligue 1 encounter on Saturday

He goes into Wednesday's first leg of this scorching knockout tie saying: "Real Madrid will want to save their season and will be extra motivated". He may be beginning his decline, but there is life in him yet.

PSG ace Neymar What time is the game on at?

The Barcelona and Real Madrid pair have fought against each other for decades to prove who is better but there is no definitive answer to this question.

"It also helps me to relativise when under pressure, to be more relaxed".

"PSG? This is what any team would want". Which he is - scoring a goal a game in a Paris shirt. "This tie between Real Madrid and PSG", Ronaldo said, "is one that could define the whole season".

"Some people think that we have already qualified because Real have been through a bad patch of form".

If there was ever a good time to play the holders, then this is it. As back-to-back world champions, we're all reluctant to countenance a three-peat (this has to end sooner rather than later), but Real has got two extremely great things going for them at the moment.

It is the most eagerly anticipated of all the last-16 match-ups and PSG's aim is to prove they've progressed from exiting the competition at this stage 12 months ago to Barcelona.

"I don't have to show anything tomorrow", he said. He has won eight trophies since replacing the unpopular Rafa Benitez in the Madrid dugout, including an unprecedented five in one calendar year in 2017. Only Atletico Madrid have beaten them since the start of December and they are now seventh, which could be enough for a Europa League place at the season's end. Finishing second behind Tottenham in their Champions League group also exposed them to this tougher draw.

Real Madrid has relied on its attacking power to thrive in the Champions League in recent years.

The last time the sides met at the 81,000-seat Santiago Bernabeu was in the 2015/16 group stage, with Nacho scoring the hosts' victor. The Madrid defense has struggled this season.

ZINEDINE ZIDANE has a fully fit squad to choose from and full-back Dani Carvajal is the only man ruled out for Los Blancos due to suspension.

The Brazilian plays in the same position as the Portuguese and with Messi an impossible signing for Madrid, he would be the very best alternative to the 33-year-old.
