March 6, 2018 Off By Regan Walsh

The second leg of PSG vs Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League takes place tonight, in a game where the host must score at least two goals and not concede to go through to the quarter finals on away goals.

However the big news heading into the game is that the Parisian side will be without Neymar who suffered a broken metatarsal in PSG game after the first leg, so that news may give Los Blancos an bit more hope of progressing.

If the first leg is anything to go by then we are in for a very entertaining 90 minutes of football, As it was PSG who took the lead but a Real Madrid comeback set up for a very intriguing match at the Parc de Princes.

If PSG were to complete the comeback and win the tie and advance it would leave Real Madrid trophy less for the season and it could be the end of Zinedine Zidane run at the club.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has called on his teammates to be focused for tonights game “Our approach and our concentration are priorities, we must have 20 senses,┬áThere is no room for error, as one failure can leave us out.It is an important day, like a final.We’re not here to gift anything away, so we can’t have a lack of attitude.”
