We gave PSG confidence before Madrid clash - Dijon respond to Rabiot jibe

17 February 2018

PSG played their part in an end-to-end contest, with Neymar's delicate assist for Rabiot a highlight and Kylian Mbappe forcing a strong save from Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

The French giants have it all to do in the return leg of their last-16 encounter with the reigning European champions following a 3-1 reversal at Santiago Bernabeu. That's what I think. We played a great match, but we also need the officiating to be fair and balanced.

Cristiano Ronaldo equalised from the penalty spot on the stroke of half-time before he doubled his tally with seven minutes remaining.

Ronaldo increased his Champions League tally with Madrid to 101 goals in 95 matches, a record for a player with the same club.

"It was a pity we didn't go into the break with the lead but these small actions from the referees did not help us,"he said".

Real Madrid rebounded from a one-goal, first-half deficit to defeat PSG.

Ronaldo, formerly a PSG target, was ineffectual in open play but scored twice to change the game while Neymar, all tricks and fancy touches, failed to have a telling impact. "We were playing with the aim of scoring a second, we found another refereeing action, a possible foul before the 2-1". Two of the richest soccer clubs in the world faced each other in the most expected clash in the Champions League round of sixteen.

Chris Burke, Paris: A year on from their Camp Nou collapse, Paris were once again stung by late goals in Spain to leave their quarter-final hopes in doubt.

They responded on Twitter, posting a picture of the midfielder's comments, with the caption "We did everything to give PSG confidence before Real Madrid".
