Cristiano Ronaldo has admitted that Real Madrid’s season is now at the mercy of their Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain as the Spanish giants goes adrift in the Laliga.
“The tie…is one that could define the whole season,” the Portuguese forward told Real’s website.
“We’re going to come up against a great team with excellent players, whom we respect a lot.”
“But we’ve already shown that we have a very strong, united and experienced group in this competition.”
Zindane’s boys will welcome PSG at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday in the first leg of their last-16 tie, with the return billed for March 6 at the French capital.
Real Madrid have won the Champions league back to back in the last two seasons and it’s been eight years since they were knocked out at the round of 16 stage.
Madrid are trailing behind leaders, Barcelona with 17 points and a game at hand.
