The Brazilian triples the number of successful attempts from Cavani by 111 to 32 in terms of crosses and dribbles, though he does also lose the ball twice as often, 0.4 per game to 0.9.

PSG remain a glittering collection of names that stand out on the back of a jersey, but shrink in front of European opposition.

PSG still has not reached the semifinals since its lone appearance in 1995.

It is an important day, like a final. Real Madrid won 2-1. "Madrid deserved to go through". Despite his success in Europe, Zidane has been under pressure and his job was on the line.

If PSG come attacking, they run the risk of exposing their defence to counter attacks and the hosts will do well not to concede at home tonight. After leaving Bale out of last month's league game against Leganes, Zidane offered what seemed a contradictory assessment of the player's importance. The header to open the scores in Paris was his 117th Champions League goal, extending a remarkable record. He got a second yellow card, having protested vehemently with referee Felix Brych after not getting a free kick. We sang until we couldn't sing anymore including through the half time interval.

Ronaldo had already done his usual damage.

Massimiliano Allegri's substitutions were critical in turning the tie in Juve's favour and Lichtsteiner's performance from the bench was superb.

It was Real who ended up opening the scoring after 51 minutes.

"For sure Bale would prefer to play more", Zidane added. Rabiot, inspired me, I ate it up, I was re-energised. The club's communications department had released a video, urging fans to rally behind the team seemingly as a matter of urgency for the city itself.

Juve required two goals so when Allegri sent on Asamoah and Lichtsteiner you could sense a collective perplexion from the away end. The Blaugrana have signed Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho and right now, there's no interest in bringing Neymar back right now.

Injuries and the club's failure to produce in the Champions League could turn his time at the Stade De France into purely a pitstop.

Yet it's said in this fresh report that Neymar accepts he was stubborn in his attempt to escape Messi's shadow, while he has apparently been surprised that Ligue One is so inferior to La Liga.

Now, a member of European soccer's royalty can look forward to the draw for the quarterfinals on March 16. "If we keep playing with this attitude, we will go far".

They own French football for the foreseeable future, but that's not what the Qataris signed up for. No player made more tackles (4), more clearances (13) or blocked more shots (3) than the Italian. He knows where he is.

PSG fans set off flares during the Champions League round of sixteen second leg match.
