Perhaps last season's incredible second leg capitulation against Barcelona continues to weigh heavily on the minds of everyone at the French powerhouse. It is an indescribable feeling that you feel in the pit of your stomach that begins on the morning of the match day and no matter how hard you try to ignore it or cover it up, it sits there and you brace yourself for what's about to happen.

Trailing 1-0 in the first leg, Zidane turned the match around by replacing Casemiro and Isco with Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio.

"That´s life, not to win, to lose sometimes". Somehow, someway, it was so.

But he does only create a chance from a corner less than 10 percent of the time. Alves wrote on Twitter. The Brazilian is a left-back but his positioning is so high up he's really virtually a winger. "He plays for a different team, it would be absurd - we have a policy not to talk about players at other teams", Valverde said. "He knows where he is and that the others are important".

Madrid seized the advantage in the tie with two late goals in their 3-1 first-leg win and they managed the clash at Parc des Princes in professional fashion, as PSG, without the injured Neymar, struggled for inspiration in the attacking third.

Ronaldo is hitting top form at a crucial time and has scored in nine Champions League games in a row, matching Ruud van Nistelrooy's record.

Because there is a very strong argument to be made that the French super club, with a healthy Neymar, would have overcome a 3-1 first-leg deficit in Paris on Tuesday night.

Barca, however, is not the only club Neymar is reportedly targeting as a potential way out of PSG.

Neymar missed PSG's last 16 loss to Real on Tuesday after undergoing surgery on a broken foot in Brazil last week.

Within Barcelona, few are keen to make such a deal happen. He also didn't expect the level of Ligue 1 to be so inferior to La Liga.

Cristiano Ronaldo's powerful header - his 12th goal of the competition - and a deflected effort from midfielder Casemiro either side of a close-range finish from PSG's Edinson Cavani sent Madrid through 5-2 on aggregate. Similarly, Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea in 2003 but it wasn't until 2012 when Chelsea finally tasted Champions League glory.

PSG will be under pressure as they play in front of their fans who definitely want a better outing in the Champions League this season having spent a lot on new recruits.

Zidane, who was most expensive player yet when he joined Madrid for Juventus in 2001, believes spending records will continue to be set.

Playing with Cristiano Ronaldo has its downsides.

"It's going be difficult and we are going to face big teams from now but we keep working to achieve big things". It is a paradox of this cartoonishly inflated club that it has retained an authentically passionate core, both ends keeping up a relentless wall of noise throughout this game.

A tremendous performance and a 16th goal of the season.
