Ronaldo wants team mate dropped for PSG clash

Cristiano Ronaldo was not included in a combined Real Madrid-Paris Saint-Germain XI voted for by fans in Spanish publication Marca.

According to the Daily Mail, Neymar also had three swallows tattooed behind his left ear to symbolise "honour, respect, courage, freedom, dignity and trust".

Edinson Cavani expects Cristiano Ronaldo to be at his most risky when Paris Saint-Germain face Real Madrid in the Champions League last 16.

"We have prepared just as we always do and it's true that pressure will always be there in the background".

Marco Verratti, Marquinhos and Adrien Rabiot make up the remaining PSG stars included on the Emirates aeroplane, who sponsor the Ligue 1 side.

Before leaving Real, he remembers the club sending a letter to the Argentine FA in which they warned of the national team's culpability for any injuries he would pick up at the 2014 World Cup. "Any fan would like to have Neymar in their team", he added on Tuesday.

"And I think Neymar will play for Real Madrid one day".

"Well, he has more experience than me and I'm sure he'll know how to get out of this situation", he told Marca when asked about Ronaldo's relative struggles.

The Argentina global was at the Santiago Bernabeu from 2010 to 2014 and won the 2013-14 Champions League in his final season.

In the summer, PSG committed €400 million on two players as they sought to break through that barrier, including the man who led their destruction at the Camp Nou, but much of the noise in the build-up to this game has been about Neymar departing for Madrid.

Defeating PSG could return Real Madrid stars to the right track, and they will soon be on their way to defend their precious title.

He said PSG found "motivation" in facing the "champions" and "12-times winners", a status he insisted on more than once. And he is likely to be leading the strike force with Mario Mandzukic, who netted in two of his three group stage appearances. Before then he had only scored four goals all season. We don't feel pressured, we are used to playing in such games.

Paris have of course been in Spain since that game in 2015, and will never forget the 6-1 humiliation they suffered in Barcelona at the same stage of last year's Champions League.

Rakhawy believes that Real Madrid are lucky to play the first game at home.

Now we move on to the business end of the pitch, where there is an very bad lot of competition for the three places across the front line. Edinson Cavani has been banging them in again this term, usurping the great Zlatan Ibrahimovic as PSG's record goalscorer in the process.
