"My relationship with Real Madrid ended", he told French magazine So Foot. The club will face Neymar's team tomorrow in the first of two games in the Champions League.

The Brazilian will come up against the current Ballon d'Or victor and all-time Champions League top scorer Ronaldo.

He signed a deal with PSG until 2022.

"We all know how strong Real Madrid are, but we also know our potential, what we can do and I think it's going to be a great game and I hope there will be a lot of goals for PSG and not so many for Real Madrid".

"Liverpool are an offensive team with very interesting players and I think they scored the second most goals in the group stage, but I think Liverpool also have their weaknesses", says the Porto boss. Simply, we need to be able to play our game, try to maintain control when we are not on the ball and stay focused.

Fourth and some 17 points behind Barcelona - a situation compounded by their humiliation in the Spanish Cup against Leganes - means that the Champions League is now regarded as Zidane's last shot at salvation. That was evident in a loss to Lyon last month when PSG panicked in defense and conceded a stoppage-time goal.

It is set to be a mouthwatering clash as the La Liga side have struggled to keep up appearances as defending champions of both Europe and Spain this season - now 17 points behind Barcelona and having finished second in their Champions League group behind Tottenham Hotspur.

"I don't know if Porto are going to be afraid but we are going to make their life hard and make them suffer", said Firmino, who has scored 20 goals in all competitions, including six in the Champions League.

"We're happy with him", Real manager Zinedine Zidane said of Ronaldo.

"CR7" now has 23 goals in all competitions this season, more than at the same stage a year ago. Only Atletico Madrid have beaten them since the start of December and they are now seventh, which could be enough for a Europa League place at the season's end.

Meanwhile Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino wants to make Porto "suffer" in their Champions League last-16 first-leg tie.

Marcelo believes Brazil teammate Neymar will one day join Real Madrid.

Spain goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga finally made his comeback for Athletic Bilbao after injury and the January move to Real Madrid that never was. "It's important to keep our level up in Ligue 1 and before our Champions League game".
