PSG vs Real Madrid: The kings of Europe set out to conquer Paris
The Parc des Princes will welcome the kings of Europe on Tuesday evening, as back-to-back Champions League winners Real Madrid come to town looking to confirm their passage to the quarter-finals of this year’s tournament. Los Blancos come with an impressive record in this competition, both over the course of their history and in the most recent editions. Real Madrid also come with Cristiano Ronaldo, the king of this competition. The No.7 has scored in all seven of his Champions League appearances this season for a total of 11 goals, two of them in the first leg at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, which Real Madrid won 3-1.He’s always delivered in the Champions League, but has also been scoring domestically in recent weeks and has now bagged 14 goals in his past eight outings. When he is on the pitch Real Madrid seem to score, especially in this competition. The last time Los Blancos didn’t score at least once in the Champions League was in the semi-finals of 2015/16, when Ronaldo wasn’t present and when Manchester City kept them out.It should also be kept in mind just how special a city Paris is to Ronaldo, as it was in the French capital that he won Euro 2016 with Portugal and it was at the Eiffel Tower that he was presented with the 2017 Ballon d’Or. He’ll be hoping to smile in Paris once again by the time of Tuesday’s full-time whistle.
