Real Madrid, Liverpool through to quarter-final — Champions League

An exit would also see PSG lose out on extra millions on offer for further progress in Europe, money which would help them meet UEFA's financial fair play rules.

Things are not going so well in the Spanish league, however. He was wanted by the owners, rather than desperately needed by the team. It's a blend that's hard to stumble upon. We have been programmed to feel this way. The 6-1 defeat to Barca in the return leg made a huge impact on confidence still felt today.

The Champions League's all-time leading scorer was given far too much space and leapt triumphantly to beat Areola with a downward header in the 51st minute. After all, nobody comes to the Parc and wins, right?

"It was insensitive, " he told German broadcaster ZDF.

Can you see Neymar returning to Barcelona? Unfortunately, alongside Dani Alves and Marco Verratti, Rabiot was one of PSG's poorest performers on Tuesday night. The Brazilian is a left-back but his positioning is so high up he's really virtually a winger.

"We can't choose which one we play against, so we have to be ready and try to win". "To defend well against their wide players, we did that very well". But the players and management didn't do theirs, again.

While Madrid only hit the target with 38% of their shots, the defending champions tested their luck 14 times and forced their opponents to make 29 defensive actions.

If PSG lacked a spark they also lacked precision in their set pieces, another key part of Neymar's game that was missing here.

PSG 1-2 Real Madrid (5-2 on aggregate)Holders Real Madrid cruised into the Champions League quarter-finals, with Cristiano Ronaldo's second-half goal helping them to victory at Paris St Germain as the 12-time European champions went through 5-2 on aggregate.

PSG coach Unai Emery was booed when his name was read out before kickoff as the home supporters aired their grievances at a second consecutive last 16 Champions League elimination under the Spaniard. "They are going to make life hard for us". "We tried but we couldn't do it". "Bale is an important player in this squad and he always will be", Zidane said.

"The atmosphere promises to be electric", the CUP chief added.

This latest loss threatens to resonate off the field, too.

Having had successful surgery in his homeland, Neymar will be assessed by PSG in six weeks to determine when he will return to training. We're on the right track. Another one of Spurs' brilliant bargain buys. Maybe it will, eventually?

"I don't have to say if [criticism of Benzema] is unfair or not", Zidane said.

The 48-year-old is expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer due to his constant bickering with the club's board about transfer policy, and his sides less than impressive defence of their Premier League crown.
