PSG's Angel Di Maria motivated to face Real Madrid after contentious exit

FELIPE SEVILLANO

Meanwhile Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino wants to make Porto "suffer" in their Champions League last-16 first-leg tie.

The former United man was part of the PSG squad that blew away a 4-0 lead in the first leg to suffer a 6-1 defeat in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 last season.

It would also be interesting to see how Real Madrid would tackle his pace and skills in the left wing with Carvajal being out of the first leg. We are getting a good price on this bet and as a result, this is the bet which I am going to suggest. "I just want a handsome game of football".

Beating Real over two legs, however, will be hard. Just like they did with their last year's tormentor-in-chief Neymar in the summer of 2017 when they paid a whopping $263 million to Barcelona.

Korea's united Olympic squad: symbol of hope or mere political stunt?
The North initially had no athletes coming to the Olympics, but the International Olympic Committee allowed 22 as special entries. Alina Muller had a hat trick for Switzerland by the end of the first period and added a fourth early in the second.

Di Maria claims PSG are in a much better position than last season, while issuing a warning to his teammates of what they can expect when they face Real.

Signing world-class players like Neymar and Mbappe will not catapult them in the top tier of European football.

Their expensively assembled side have swept nearly all before them this term but overcoming the reigning European champions would be a big feather in their cap.

It would also turn out that PSG would indeed have that €200million to put on the table - at least they would five years later, paying Neymar's buyout clause and forcing Barcelona to release one of their prized assets.

Two Ohio Police Officer Killed Responding To 911 Call
I have spoken with Westerville city leaders and pledged the full assistance of the Ohio Highway Patrol in any way they need. Joering was pronounced dead at the scene, while Morelli was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital.

That's not the only intriguing angle to tonight's match.

Barca already had Messi to "take his place", of course, but the move had an immediate impact on football as a whole in a way that has arguably never happened before.

"This is a chance for us to keep growing as a club by playing against the reigning champions and the team that has won the most titles".

Cristiano Ronaldo has collected his award after topping the Goal 50 and exclusively told Goal that he always believed his talismanic form could be recaptured at Real Madrid. Los Blancos will have to invest everything they have in the Champions League as they don't have a shot at any other trophy this season. PSG have to show that they can beat the best of the best rather than the cannon fodder served to them in Lique 1 on a weekly basis.

The missing five tourists, including one child, come from Beijing and are believed to be trapped in the Yun Men Tusi Ti building. Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen visited those sheltering in schools and other sites as a safeguard against repeated aftershocks.

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane says he is not anxious about his future at the club.
