Zidane: “Tomorrow We Will Suffer And Also Play Football”

◼️ The Real Madrid coach is expecting an intense match on Tuesday at the Parc des Princes. “I worry more about their players than the atmosphere” he said.

Like Sergio Ramos, Zinedine Zidane also faced the microphones previous to the duel on Tuesday between Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, series in which the merengue team arrives with the advantage of 3-1 obtained in the first leg in its eagerness to reach the quarterfinals of the Champions League.


“I’m more concerned about their players than the atmosphere, we are used to it, we are going to play 11 against 11 with a referee who will do his job, all I do is think about our game, the atmosphere will be hot, but you know what the environments are like when we play … We are used to it”, said the coach about what he expects from the match at the Parc des Princes tomorrow.

Neymar is suffering from a fractured metatarsal and a sprained ankle, and this is a big blow for PSG. Angel Di Maria, who is a replacement for the Brazilian, will be motivated to face Real.

Centre-back Marquinhos is doubtful to play against Real after picking up an injury in their league game. PSG have not lost a home Champions League Game since 2015. The Parisians are currently unbeaten in their last six league games.
