Predicting Liverpool v Porto & PSG v Madrid Champions League games

Agent Mino Raiola has defended Marco Verratti after his red card in PSG's limp Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid - insisting Cristiano Ronaldo got away with worse.

"They were pathetic; never looked like putting a dent in Real Madrid at all", said Souness.

And they could get their wish, with Ginola telling talkSPORT Wenger would be the ideal man to reinstall some French flair into the PSG side. At full strength, Jurgen Klopp's team have the ability to cause any team in the Champions League problems.

For PSG, 14 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, it is the second successive season where they have gone out at the last-16 phase and it leaves manager Unai Emery's future at the club in doubt. It was evident that intensity of this match from the get-go was high, and the teams were trying to gain some control over the game.

This was a huge test for a PSG side desperate to prove it belongs among Europe's elite, especially after spectacularly failing previous year - becoming the first team eliminated after winning the first leg 4-0.

ACC tournament preview: No. 1 Virginia
Despite missing four games due to injury, Bagley remained the best player in the conference and one of the best in the country. We had some opportunities that we squandered but our execution wasn't quite as good but I think that's due to their defense.

Real Madrid have given their fans a glimpse into how their star players celebrated their progression to the Champions League quarter-finals.

The World Player of the Year scored twice to punish PSG's slack defending in the first leg in Madrid and his goal in Paris took him to a remarkable 117 in the Champions League, putting him 19 ahead of his eternal rival Lionel Messi of Barcelona. "Obviously it became harder for them when we scored the second goal".

But all this bluster seemed more like bluff.

They had only made Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas work once in the first half, from Kylian Mbappe's shot in the 43rd minute.

After seeing the likes of Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale struggle this for form, Spanish youngsters Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio have been impressing having been handed the chance to by Zidane in the past month. To add insult to injury, Neymar, whose absence, without a doubt, made it hard for the PSG to secure the win, reportedly wants to leave the club. That's why I thought it would have been better to continue to attack and press forward.
