Fascinating Duels All Over The Pitch When Real Madrid Take On PSG

Real Madrid are a unsafe animal given they have been distanced in La Liga and have only the Champions League to play for as they chase a fourth trophy in the competition in the space of five seasons.

Big-spending PSG memorably lost to Barcelona at the same stage last season, winning the first leg 4-0 before Neymar - now with the French club following a world record £198million move - inspired Barcelona to a 6-1 win in the second.

Former Real Madrid midfielder Guti thinks Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar will end up at the Spanish outfit in the future.

The five times Balon d'Or victor will be hoping to carry his new-found form into the clash with PSG, but he thinks they only have a chance of winning the match if one player does not start.

"We have to be very focused and play two fantastic matches to progress in the Champions League, we respect PSG very much but we are very united". That was evident in a loss to Lyon last month when PSG panicked in defense and conceded a stoppage-time goal.

Madrid languishes in fourth place and 17 points behind Barcelona in La Liga and is out of the Copa del Rey.

Ahmed believes that Real Madrid should count on their attacking line to break the Parisian defense; he said, "we should start the game with Ronaldo, (Karim) Benzema and (Gareth) Bale". He, however, insisted that his team is ready to take on the visitors. They'll feel aggrieved to have drawn Real, back-to-back winners of the competition under Zinedine Zidane.

This experienced Cameroon worldwide has been in sparkling form for Porto this season and scored five goals in the Champions League group stages.

He scored the Catalan side's third goal in that Champions League final against Juventus after earlier goals from Ivan Rakitic and Luis Suarez cancelled out Alvaro Morata's strike. Whatever the outward projections, Zidane knows a victory over the in-form PSG would go a long way to securing at least a stay of execution in the Real hotseat.

Emery was happy PSG continued their strong run of form run, saying it was vital ahead of the last-16 first leg with the reigning European title holders.

That was his motivation to force the move - they'd build around him, support him, and do what they could to ensure their star is the star of world football. "Obviously it is the best competition, but for me the league is very important".
