Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery still believes in his side's chances of winning a place in the quarters despite their 3-1 first-leg loss; Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane knows the return leg in Paris in will be tough. I think we deserved the win after the work we've done, all the preparations we've made.

PSG struck first with a goal by Adrien Rabiot, but Ronaldo equalised with his incredible penalty just before half-time.

The 26-year-old and his colleagues were on the end of a 3-1 defeat to Cristiano Ronaldo and company, which has set up the second leg of the Round of 16 clash to be a mouthwatering affair.

Real Madrid have the experience, the game is 90 minutes and we wanted a good result at home.

"We need to keep playing like that, with the desire to defend the Champions League".
