Cristiano Ronaldo says he 'stood out' against Paris Saint-Germain

Cristiano Ronaldo says he 'stood out' against Paris Saint-Germain

PSG are used to strolling through games in second gear and as a result, it is difficult to play with the intensity required for 90 minutes to beat Real Madrid.

Zinedine Zidane's men displayed their intent early on, starting the game with a lot of urgency and putting pressure as PSG started to play out from the back.

Lo Celso, who had established himself as a starter for Emery's side in recent times due to the absence of the injured Thiago Motta, was hounded right from the whistle.

Porto had lost only two matches in all competitions this season prior to last night but they were blown away by the pace and precision of Liverpool's frontline, as the Reds recorded their first win in the knockout stages of the Champions League since 2009. Real rode their luck occasionally and had the visitors been more effective in front of goal, the result might have been different - a warning for the return leg.

"Today things worked out for me - I scored twice and helped the team to win, but we know the tie is not finished yet".

PSG have been in formidable form over the course of 2017-18, and looked more likely to snatch three points for large spells of the last-16 encounter.

"Last year, in Barcelona, the referee". The young Spaniard hasn't been as influential this season but showed with his sheer drive and determination he can't be ignored.

When asked how footballing chiefs can solve the issue, Owen blasted: "Referees not bottling it, for starters". He then added to the lead in the 83rd minute. Mohamed Salah was first to the rebound, and juggled the ball around the Porto goalkeeper before slotting it home.

This was a particularly poignant time for the venerated and varnished Cristiano Ronaldo to renew his vows with football's sexiest prize.

Bad tactical decisions, and a $250 million man discovering that fancy spins, tricks and flashy goal celebrations may work in Ligue Un but not against Real Madrid. Typically, almost doubled the tackle rate of everyone else on the pitch. It has to be that way.

"But it wasn't about Cristiano tonight, it wasn't about Karim Benzema and it wasn't about Edinson Cavani".

History is not on the 46-year-old's side, though.

Neymar, who joined Paris Saint-Germain this season, was fortunate that he wasn't sent off when he dived for the second time despite being fouled by anyone. All of Bale, Asensio and Lucas Vazquez were sprung from the bench, shifting his team into a 4-2-4 formation. "The problem is that it's easy to put eight goals against Dijon, or four, in the league". Ronaldo converted, allowing Real to escape the half with the scored knotted at 1-1.
