Neymar on Real Madrid's win against PSG

Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be a man on a mission, every time he takes the pitch for Real Madrid in the Champions League.

The Portugal worldwide plants his left foot as close to the ball as possible making it lift off the ground slightly before striking the ball sweetly with his right foot.

On a mission to become a major force in European soccer, PSG played well from the start in an exciting back-and-forth match against the two-time defending champion, but the late goals significantly hurt its chances of finally succeeding in the Champions League. Neymar played fantastically, but his team couldn't see out the game after going ahead.

"I swear to you, insane but he used to do it". There is another game at home, in front of our fans, which will be very hard, like the one in Madrid. "We have to turn our attentions now to the return leg, that will be entirely different".

On 33 minutes, the ball still went in the gate, "real" - Rabiot picked up the ball in the penalty area and shot past Navas. The Portuguese smashed home from the penalty spot after Giovani Lo Celso had dragged down Toni Kroos, as the teams went in level at the break.

That was after Zidane had taken a risk by leaving out Gareth Bale, a key element in the side that has won three of the last four Champions Leagues.

Neymar has called on his memories from his time at Barcelona which saw them dump Paris Saint-Germain out of the Champions League at this stage last season in hope of emulating such feats when his side tackle Real Madrid in their return leg next month. I think we deserved the win after the work we've done, all the preparations we've made.

PSG coach Unai Emery did no favour to his players by making a defensive subsitution in the 66th minute as Meunier came on at right-back to let Dani Alves move upfront and assist Neymar and Mbappe.

Addressing the ongoing reports post-match, Al-Khelaifi told beIN SPORTS: "Of course, 100 per cent Neymar will be a PSG player next year". "And this is how they thank us!", they stated.

Under pressure himself with Real flagging domestically, he needed this win, and will earn praise for his substitutions, with Marco Asensio coming off the bench to set up each of the two late goals. We have to be optimistic and positive for the match in Paris.

Then he made a decision to take off the clubs's all-time record goal-scorer, Edinson Cavani, in the second half, only to replace him with a right-back in Thomas Meunier.

The Frenchman, meanwhile, paid tribute to Ronaldo , who despite showing signs of fallibility in La Liga this season has scored 11 goals in Europe in just seven matches.
