Real Madrid hosts PSG while Liverpool visit Porto

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.

Real Madrid face PSG challenge in the Champions League Round of 16 first leg on Wednesday.

Cristiano Ronaldo certainly loves playing against Real Sociedad, his hat-trick in Real Madrid's 5-2 win over the Basque side at the Bernabeu on Saturday meaning he has now scored 15 times against them in seven home games in La Liga.

PSG come into the tie looking the stronger of the two sides, but that form may count for relatively little over the two legs against a team that have won the Champions League in three of the last four seasons. "When things don't well you learn a lot".

What time is the UEFA Champions League Real Madrid v/s Paris St-Germain match kick-off?

Spain goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga finally made his comeback for Athletic Bilbao after injury and the January move to Real Madrid that never was.

It is the most eagerly anticipated of all the last-16 match-ups and PSG's aim is to prove they've progressed from exiting the competition at this stage 12 months ago to Barcelona. I want to thank all those who voted for me and, above all, thank my team-mates, the coaches and Real Madrid staff. Now Unai Emery's men believe they are ready to rule the continent, thanks to acquisitions like Neymar and Angel Di Maria. "We are happy for him".

"With my experience, I will still put my money on the people who are used to getting there", the Al-Rayyan coach told Omnisport.

"Tonight, from the first minute, the team went out to play football, keep the ball, press their opponents to win the ball high up the pitch, and there was a big difference", Ramos said.

As soon as he had left the Catalan club, it was speculated that the Brazilian would end up at Real Madrid, where he spent a short time on trial as a teenager as part of Robinho's move from Santos.

Ronaldo's future also had no bearing on Bale's future plans, Barnett said, as he did not need the Portuguese to leave in order to be acknowledged as a key player in Madrid's team.

Emery is keen to exorcise the demons of PSG's last Champions League campaign - where they were dumped out of the competition by Spanish opposition.
