Zidane's side take on in-form Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League round of 16.

Guillem Balague has offered hope to Liverpool in their alleged pursuit of Real Madrid midfielder, Isco. "We were in control of the game, above all the first half, so not happy, of course". Will they turn things around this Saturday? And that's where it got complicated.

That was the message from the stadium announcer on the loudspeaker after Real Madrid thrashed Real Sociedad 5-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday evening. "Every day, he surprises me with something new", he said.

"I have to pick a team". Zinedine Zidane, too, is growing tired of his side's defensive errors. "Then in the face of goal we have been more successful".

"It was an intense game, we were always putting the work in". We knew how to rest ourselves.

Monaco wing-back Fabinho has revealed his time with the club is "coming to an end", which will alert Manchester United, who were interested in the 24-year-old Brazilian last season.

The Los Blancos now sit fourth in the La Liga and are 19 points behind leaders Barcelona, but also have PSG coming up next in the first leg of the Champions League last 16. Levante scored the equalizer in the 89th minute, furthering Ronaldo's anger.

Zidane's side, winners of five trophies in an impressive 2017, are also out of the Copa del Rey following a disastrous defeat at home to Leganes in the quarter-finals in January, so the Champions League assumes even greater importance this time around.

Zidane's demeanour at press conferences and in interviews after games has been straight out of a media manual on how to say as little as possible while remaining engaged and courteous.

Not only that, he has explained that the player will get game time, as will numerous squad because they have so many games coming up.

Still only 25, Isco is arguably the flawless Coutinho replacement for Liverpool, whose chances of landing the Spain worldwide are likely to hinge on their qualification for next season's Champions League - as well as the success of Real Madrid's Hazard pursuit.
