Ronaldo, Neymar
Thursday, 3:45amReal Madrid against Paris Saint GermainH 2.47, D 3.86 2.9
The Champions League resumes with a mouth-watering meeting of the aristocrats and the disturbers of European football.
hosts: Real Madrid, the undisputed kings of the continent with 12 titles, led by five-time world player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo.
visitors: Paris Saint-Germain, the upstarts that bulldozer of soccer, the transfer of the results to coupling of Neymar for the Qatari-funded mission to reach football’s elite.
The Santiago Bernabeu stadium is the stage of tomorrow [Thursday, 3:45] for Neymar to return to Spain, six months after the heir to the throne of Ronaldo has been prized away from Barcelona for € 222 million.
“[Neymar and Ronaldo] are both fast, very strong one-to-one, they play fast and put a lot of intensity in their game,” said winger from PSG Angel Di Maria, winner of the Champions League alongside Ronaldo at Madrid in 2014. “Ney is smaller, and it may be to his advantage. But they are both capable of running games.”
Only one of the superstars can advance to the round of 16 games in Madrid and Paris over the next month.
The 26-year-old Neymar is running after the supreme state already reached by Ronaldo.
“He lives and breathes goals,” Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said of Ronaldo, noting the 33-year-old Portuguese before enduring influence on the team. Ronaldo has helped Madrid win three of the last four Champions League titles, with two goals in the last season of the ultimate victory of the Juventus.
the Juventus allows you to open the knockout phase this week against Tottenham on Tuesday, Manchester City moves to Basel. Liverpool is away against Porto on Wednesday, but it will take something special to grab the spotlight from the Spanish capital.
“This tie,” Ronaldo said, “could define the whole season.”
This is not only a place in the quarter-final game for PSG and Madrid. The loss of the coach is likely to be found at the end of the season.
two months ago, Zidane lifted the club World Cup for the second consecutive year, but his job prospects may depend on to win a third consecutive Champions League title.
So many things have gone wrong at the national level. Madrid languishes in fourth place and 17 points behind Barcelona in la Liga and is out of the Copa del Rey.
In Paris, Unai Emery is still haunted by last season’s failures. He clung to power despite being deposed as French champions and a stunning collapse at this stage of Barcelona.
“We are stronger than last season,” Di Maria said.
of Course, in France, where PSG have pulled 12 points, champion of Monaco.
But while the PSG can intimidate most teams, he is vulnerable against those who play with aggression and closing down high up the field. That was evident in the loss to Lyon last month when PSG panic in the defence and conceded a stoppage-time.
the PSG hopes that the decision to invest a large part of its resources in securing Neymar and Kylian Mbappe not turn against Madrid.
Di Maria was stronger than Mbappe recently, scoring four times in the last month compared to the 19-year-old before the effort alone. MDT/AP
