PSG braced for fine from UEFA for fans' behaviour against Real Madrid

"The most important thing is the analysis that we can carry out within the club about what happened, and what we can change to make progress", Emery said.

The former Real Madrid midfielder, now in his third season in charge of the Spanish team, made all the right moves against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, knocking out the favored French club 5-2 on aggregate after winning 3-1 in Madrid and 2-1 in Paris. With two seemingly passive managers having held the hot seat in succession, maybe it is time for an authoritarian figure to take the reins and apply his methods.

Especially critical are the first 15 minutes of the first half, when it is most likely to see a goal from either team. "Congratulations my guys, ALLEZ PARIS".

Neymar is keeping his spirits up in the company of friends as the PSG star recovers from an operation on his foot.

Asensio raced down the left wing, turned infield and slipped a brilliant throughball to Vazquez, whose clipped cross was headed down and into the net by Ronaldo at the far post.

Real Madrid have been heavily linked with making the Brazil ace their next big 'Galactico' signing', with some people feeling as though Neymar is using his old club to boost his chances of joining Los Blancos.

But the ease of Real Madrid's ultimate victory speaks volumes not just for their own champion poise but for the difficulty of combining dreams of European dominance with the room-temperature French league. Only two clubs, Porto and Bayern Munich, have received more.

It was reported throughout the summer that a key reason as to why Neymar surprised the footballing world to move to France was so that the spotlight would be firmly on him, which of course was never the case at Barcelona as Lionel Messi was there.

At a time when political bullies are turning into cartoonish Bond villains, it's somewhat reassuring that certain football bullies are failing.

Draxler was scathing in his criticism of the team and coach Unai Emery's decision not to bring him off the bench when Edinson Cavani made it 1-1 after 71 minutes. Rabiot, inspired me, I ate it up, I was re-energised. They're a brave and disciplined team and I'm not surprised by their league position.

Video footage appeared to show Alves rubbing his nose with his fingers and then wiping them on Ronaldo's sleeve.

The game in Paris had to be stopped momentarily on two separate occasions in the second-half. "We need to calm ourselves and think about how we can improve the team". "Let's not talk about hypothetical situations". "We made a lot of mistakes in terms of our concentration". "We are working day by day to get big things". As if he's saying, 'I want to return to Barcelona, but I'm available if they don't want me'.
