Real Madrid face their most important game so far this season when they entertain Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night in a game which could well determine the rest of their season and the future of both coaches.

The former United man was part of the PSG squad that blew away a 4-0 lead in the first leg to suffer a 6-1 defeat in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 last season.

Madrid's disastrous season has seen Zinedine Zidane's side in fourth place in La Liga, 17 points adrift of runaway leaders Barceona, while they were also eliminated from the Copa del Rey by neighbours Leganes.

Years back, Real Madrid had stars such as Figo and Ronaldo, who also played with Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo became the world's most expensive player in 2009 when he swapped Manchester for Madrid and despite the better weather, increased Champions League and Ballon d'Or success and more clubs to bully he's constantly been linked with a move back.

The Brazilian's preparation for the Madrid clash included a visit to a tattoo parlour on Monday as he got inked with some Champions League-themed artwork. "And Madrid have their history and tradition", in what was not exactly a ringing endorsement for his side's current form but his sentiments are that regardless of how Real Madrid's form looks, they can never be counted out.

As the first immediate member of the North's ruling family to visit South Korea, Kim was swarmed by the local news media. Blue House spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom cited Moon as replying: "Let's create the environment for that to be able to happen".


Ronaldo has not been in good form in the domestic matches until he bagged a hat-trick against Real Sociedad at the weekend. "And I think Neymar will play for Real Madrid one day".

"It's clear. I've maybe not yet scored a scissor kick and I'd like to score one on the day of a major title for the club, in the final of the Champions League, for example", Cavani told Spanish media. "I think we are better prepared now and ready to compete".

"We will have to play our game, try to control and stay focused when we don't have the ball".

"PSG's positioning as a global brand has helped the club shorten the financial gap with other European powerhouses", Sartori said. "We need to learn from that and make sure that it doesn't happen again".

"What people say about me or my team I am not interested in, really". Yes, records were broken in the group stages with the Portuguese picking up nine goals in six games, becoming the first player to score in every group stage match in a tournament. "I don't know about [Kylian Mbappe] but Bale, Benzema and Cristiano were great, and within a few months, people are doubting them".
