NEWS | 14/02/2018 | Javier García

The Whites, who will be willed on by the home faithful, are bidding to take a first step towards the Champions League quarter-finals (8:45pm CET).
A blockbuster bout awaits at the Santiago Bernabéu and a fixture that could very well be the Champions League final itself, with the excitement generated in the build-up only serving to confirm that theory. Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain tonight square off in the first leg of the most attractive of the round-of-16 ties. The winners of the previous two editions of the Champions League play host to one of this season's major title contenders. The Whites will be looking to establish a lead with which to head to Paris when the sides renew acquaintances for the second leg on 6 March. In their bid to do so, they will receive the full backing of a home faithful that will create the atmosphere that's so characteristic of such great nights of football action.  

"Together we'll continue to make history", "We'll be giving every ounce for our fans" and "The Bernabéu will guide us" are just some of the messages that the players have dedicated to the fans. Fully aware of the importance of the game, the supporters are set to get right behind their side from the moment the team bus draws into the Plaza de los Sagrados Corazones. Everyone will be doing their bit to see Real Madrid pick up a positive result and extend their 17-game unbeaten run on home soil in the Champions League.


"We aren't under any pressure, we're happy to be involved in these types of games", insisted Zinedine Zidane in his pre-match press conference. The Whites' boss has named all 24 members of his squad for the encounter. Taking their places alongside their teammates as the side met up for their final pre-match preparations were Dani Carvajal, who misses out through suspension; and Jesús Vallejo, who was the only absentee in the final training session ahead of the game. Once again, Cristiano Ronaldo will be the madridistas' leading light in attack. The Portuguese, whose nine-goal haul makes him the top scorer in the Champions League, comes into the match in fine form after having struck a hat-trick last Saturday.

Speaking of goal-getters, PSG travel to the Bernabéu as the competition's leading scorers. The French outfit plundered 25 goals as they finished top of Group B, which featured Bayern Munich, Celtic and Anderlecht. Edinson Cavani (6 goals), Neymar (6) and Kylian Mbappé (4) are the visitors' standout performers in the final third. Despite being a potent force, in the build-up Marcelo warned of the threat posed by the PSG whole side: "We're not just focusing on their strikers, all of their players are very good".

Previous meetings
Although the two sides know each other inside out, they have only ever locked horns twice before in Europe's elite club competition. These two meetings came in the group phase of the 2015/16 Champions League. Following a goalless stalemate in Paris, a Nacho effort secured a 1-0 win at the Bernabéu. That game was the last time that the French side have played on Madrid's patch. The sides' head-to-head record reads nine wins for the madridistas and three draws. Tonight the team and fans will be looking to revel in another special night at the Bernabéu and take a step towards the quarter-finals.
