Madrid Face Final Rehearsal Ahead Of PSG Showdown

Real Madrid's Varane top left goes for a header with Real Sociedad's Xabi Prieto during a Spanish La Liga soccer match between Real Madrid and Real Sociedad at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid Saturday Feb. 10 2018

Zidane feels the Spanish worldwide is an integral part of the Real Madrid squad and amid the speculations linking him away from Madrid, Zidane wants him to finish his career at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane has no intentions of selling Isco or any other "crucial" member of his squad as he remains focused on securing a positive end to the season.

The first leg of the last-16 tie will be played at the Santiago Bernabeu Wednesday.

That proved to be the final goal of a action-packed half as Real ran out convincing winners on the night.

Real Madrid: Keylor Navas (rating, out of 10) 6, Dani Carvajal 6, Sergio Ramos 6, Raphael Varane 6, Marcelo 7, Toni Kroos 8, Luka Modric 7, Lucas Vazquez 7, Marco Asensio 6, Cristiano Ronaldo 9, Karim Benzema 7. With Zidane giving Isco less substantial starts in the La Liga where Real Madrid's title defence has been shattered emphatically by Clasico rivals FC Barcelona, rumours of Spanish worldwide joining forces with the likes of Guardiola, Mourinho and Pochettino have been increased subsequently.

Gareth Bale was left on the bench for Real Madrid who are clearly wrapping the Welsh Express in cotton wool ahead of the match against PSG.

Griezmann dedicated the goal to Nacho Barbera, an Atletico fan and teenage player who died from a heart attack last weekend during a game in eastern Spain.

Trust the key for Conte as he confirms his commitment to Chelsea
There are two ways [to run a club ]. 'I have to respect Chelsea who have made a great effort for me. Yeah, I think we understand that, when you lose two games in a row, the situation is not simple.

Neymar's 19th Ligue 1 goal since joining PSG from Barcelona was a sign of why the French club made him the world's most expensive player, and after being rested for a midweek Coupe de France win at Sochaux, he was twice denied a late second by the woodwork.

On Saturday, he will be without just two first-team players due to fitness problems, with Jesus Vallejo recovering from a thigh injury.

Neymar finds the net again!

Los Merengues took their foot off the boil in the second half, choosing to save some energy, with the game already won and a tricky few weeks ahead.

The picture came with a "No pain, no gain" message from Neymar which suggests he should be fit to face the might of Real Madrid... "On Friday they asked me if I was anxious about him not scoring goals and he scored three". "We don't know how the season will finish but we still believe we can do very good things".

Was it a cheeky dig at the Toulouse defenders for kicking him too much?
