  • The PSG players go over to their supporters to thank them after the 1-0 victory

Madrid's 4.5 goals-per-game over the last month in LaLiga is the best attacking return of any of the teams in the UEFA Champions League last 16 and should be cause for some concern at PSG, which has scored nine goals for and conceded two "against" in the same period.

Speaking to So Foot ahead of his return to the Bernabeu, Di Maria recalled discarding the letter from Madrid and suggested there are still hard feelings around how his time at the Bernabeu had ended.

But Zidane, who became the first coach in the Champions League era to successfully defend the trophy past year while guiding the team to the league title, is not concerned about his position.

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. Also, no player was directly involved in more goals than Firmino away from home in this season's groups (four goals, two assists).

10 - Under Zidane, Madrid have won 10 of their 14 Champions League knockout games (D2 L2), lifting the trophy twice in as many seasons.

"They are huge sums, but that is the world we now live in - when one of those four or five teams want a player, then they usually get them".

"He came to Paris to do great things and tomorrow's (Wednesday's) match is a chance for him".

PH gov't to seek other sellers if Canada refuses chopper deal
The Associated Press reported the defense secretary did say the country was not afraid to look elsewhere for sellers, should the deal with Canada fall through.

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. For Real, Nacho should replace the banned Dani Caravajal at right-back.

PSG fans are hoping there can be no repeat of such an embarrassing defeat, especially with Neymar - who masterminded that Barcelona comeback - now in their ranks.

The biggest game in the Champions League is set to take place in Madrid as Real Madrid play host to PSG.

"On Wednesday we have a very, very important match against a great team", the 33-year-old said in a video message posted on the club's Twitter page. This PSG is a renewed one, with a lot of experience.

The Parisians' line-up is easy to predict, the only selection decision Unai Emery has to make is whether to play the experienced Lassana Diarra in defensive midfield or keep faith with 21-year-old Giovani Lo Celso, who has started the club's last eight Ligue 1 matches.

Madrid's +12 goals differential in that period puts it equal with rejuvenated Italian champion Juventus and above the likes of Manchester City (+9), Bayern Munich (+8), PSG (+7) and Barcelona (+6).

This is perhaps the most highly-anticipated tie of the round of 16.
