Source: PSG to probe noise, firecrackers at Real Madrid hotel

Swiss champions Basel had their second-leg victory over Manchester City overshadowed on Wednesday after being charged for their fans' use of fireworks in the visitors' section at the Etihad stadium. "We then scored our second and things became tougher for them", Zidane added.

Alves spent eight years at Real Madrid's fierce rivals Barcelona, making 391 appearances and scoring 21 goals.

Against Madrid on Tuesday, PSG defended poorly on both goals, having conceded two sloppy ones late in the first leg. The fact PSG led 1-0 in Madrid, and impressed in spells, adds to the frustration.

PSG's failings in Europe will result in the Ballon d'Or going elsewhere but Neymar has been a joy to watch. In truth, it was over long before that.

"It shows we need to keep working, we need more maturity", he said. Emery surprisingly dropped the club captain, Thiago Silva, for the first leg and could plausibly claim that that was a key decision that he got right because 22-year-old Presnel Kimpembe performed with aplomb. Upfront is likely to be Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria and Edinson Cavani.

"It was a perfect performance".

Barcelona leads the Spanish league and is still alive in the Copa del Rey. Zinedine Zidane's future as coach may also be tied to them lifting the trophy in May. In the Champions League, however, they somehow seem to sneak out victories.

With PSG under investigation by UEFA for a potential breach of Financial Fair Play rules, and reportedly needing to raise about 50 million euros ($62 million), selling a couple of good players would help. Javier Pastore was named in PSG's squad despite a calf concern, meaning Neymar is their only notable absentee.

According to reports in the Evening Standard Conte's agent Federico Pastorello will travel to Paris next Tuesday in order to discuss a deal for his client to take over the managers job at the Parc de Princes from Unai Emery. "I pick a team every three days and for me Gareth is crucial - but there are other important players as well".

"The people who are part of this project can change".

It's unclear though if Barcelona will be willing to buy the player back so soon after he forced a move away from the club.

Many in power even believe that this is just a tactic to soften the blow when he joins Real Madrid. This was after PSG's 2-1 home defeat to defending champion Real Madrid completed a resounding 5-2 aggregate loss. That comes down to an average of four goals per 90 minutes.

"It is not a problem, I speak to him", Zidane said.

Paris Saint Germain struggled to find a way through a resolute and organized Real Madrid defense and were hampered further when Marco Verratti was shown a red card after getting himself booked twice.
