  • The PSG players go over to their supporters to thank them after the 1-0 victory

Neymar has not been affected by the rumours linking him with a move to Real Madrid, his Paris Saint-Germain teammate Marquinhos insisted ahead of the sides' Champions League showdown.

"It's clear. I've maybe not yet scored a scissor kick and I'd like to score one on the day of a major title for the club, in the final of the Champions League, for example", Cavani told Spanish media.

"They are a great team regardless of the circumstances, but they always perform at their best in this competition - it's totally different from league competition". "Like us, they have players capable of making a difference at key moments in the game", Madrid defender Raphael Varane said.

"We know that sometimes the press releases things that are not true".

The Brazilian played a key part in Barcelona's 3-1 against Italian side Juventus in Berlin, even managing to score a late third goal in the game.

The Barcelona and Real Madrid pair have fought against each other for decades to prove who is better but there is no definitive answer to this question.

Since Neymar joined PSG in a record €222 million deal last summer, Perez, club captain Sergio Ramos and Madrid's Brazil internationals Casemiro and Marcelo have all spoken about the possibility of the Brazilian playing at the Bernabeu.

He bagged a flawless hat-trick for Real in his last outing and has struck seven times in his last four matches.

Carvajal has revealed that both Nacho Fernandez and Achraf Hakimi have been readied to take his place this week, but believes that whoever does play will have to hope Neymar does not perform well. "All I can do is focus on the game; that is what important, not what people say about me".

Zinedine Zidane, the Real Madrid coach, was France's hero when Les Bleus won the FIFA World Cup in 1998.

Earlier this season, there were reports that Ronaldo was interviewing schools in London for his son Cristiano Jr. "This tie between Real Madrid and PSG", Ronaldo said, "is one that could define the whole season". The club will face Neymar's team tomorrow in the first of two games in the Champions League.

"[Neymar and Ronaldo] are both quick, very strong one-on-one, they play quickly and put a lot of intensity into their games", said PSG winger Angel Di Maria, a Champions League victor alongside Ronaldo at Madrid in 2014.
