Zinedine Zidane not thinking about his Real Madrid future

Ronaldo Madrid deliver in big games – Emery

Before leaving Real, he remembers the club sending a letter to the Argentine FA in which they warned of the national team's culpability for any injuries he would pick up at the 2014 World Cup.

However, the fact that Juventus have won just three of their last seven games in the Champions League will give the north London side hope of pulling off a surprise result in Turin.

Neymar has scored a remarkable 28 goals in 27 games in all competitions for PSG. "What we have to do is play well and if we do that the sky is the limit", Zidane said in the press conference.

History is on Real's side - they are the 12-time European champions, winners in each of the last two seasons.

Porto was the fifth equal highest scorer among the 32 group stage teams with 15 goals.

A five-time Ballon d'Or victor and holder of the FIFA Best Award, Ronaldo also contributed significantly to collective prizes such as the La Liga title and Champions League crown.

If Neymar inspires PSG to victory in this tie and then on to glory in the final in May, he will stand a good chance of ending their domination.

After an inconsistent start to the campaign, the back line has settled down and the Bianconeri have only conceded once in 16 matches in all competitions to set a club record.

But Neymar can nearly do and say what he wants, as long as his performances on the field satisfy PSG's Qatari owners.

Meanwhile, the Parisians have been dominant across all competitions, losing only three games, to Strasbourg, Bayern Munich and Lyon.

In the summer PSG spent €400m on two players as they sought to break through that barrier, including Neymar, who led their destruction at the Camp Nou, but much of the noise in the build-up has been about the Brazilian departing for Madrid.

Emery's counterpart Zinedine Zidane will head into the match with his future hanging by a thread. "This is my passion", said Zidane, who has won eight trophies as Real coach.

But now they stand fourth in La Liga, at risk of finishing off the podium in their domestic league for the first time since 2004.

PSG have twice been the world's biggest spenders, but they have so far not even made it to the semifinals of the Champions League, despite the massive financial outlay at Parc des Princes.

Ronaldo has also remained consistent in Europe, netting nine goals in Madrid's six group games this term, and Cavani does not think he will struggle to make his mark when his PSG side visit the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday. "Some things are completely out of my hands, I have no control over, not at all", the Frenchman said yesterday.
