Liverpool's game against Porto ends 0-0 and they also make the cut to next round.
"It's a huge disappointment for Paris, for the club, for the players and for the fans", he told reporters. Despite the scoreboard reading 0-0, not one of his teammates suggested he hurry up.
At a time when political bullies are turning into cartoonish Bond villains, it's somewhat reassuring that certain football bullies are failing. However Madrid came out flying at the start of the second half and Ronaldo headed home Lucas Vazquez's cross in the 51st minute, after a superb reverse ball by Marco Asensio. This was after PSG's 2-1 home defeat to defending champion Real Madrid completed a resounding 5-2 aggregate loss. It was a perfect match. Neymar also posted a video on Twitter, with the words "Vous allez le Faire" (You will do it). Unfortunately, alongside Dani Alves and Marco Verratti, Rabiot was one of PSG's poorest performers on Tuesday night. He had netted twice in the first leg. "We put pressure on our opponents and delivered a really good display".
Ronaldo's form this season has, not coincidentally, matched that of his team.
Because we know Neymar's approximate salary - reportedly around $50 million - we can say that PSG was paying roughly $85 million for Neymar's first campaign in Paris. Less than a season later, the obvious truth has finally dawned on him.
It can leave Los Blancos painfully open and Spurs ruthlessly exposed that susceptibility in the group stages but against PSG, Marcelo perfectly balanced both responsibilities. In the final rehearsal before PSG, he was brave, bold and industrious.
As Kevin Kilbane said last night, the tie against Real Madrid has shown just far away Paris Saint-Germain remain behind the European elite status they have spent heavily to get to.
Kroos and Modric are the heart of this Madrid team and without them or with them not being a 100% fit, Los Meringues will not possess the same predatory instinct.
Juve's diamond attackers Paulo Dybala and Higuain stole the headlines but it was their rock at the back who warrants most praise.
Within Barcelona, few are keen to make such a deal happen.
Benzema has been Real Madrid's No.9 since joining from Lyon back in 2009, contributing 189 goals in 189 appearances across all competitions. They are Portuguese and proud and will give a fight. "We tried but we couldn't do it". Ronaldo epitomises Madrid's European desire In recent years it's obvious that Real Madrid's prime objective has become the Champions League.
The added layer here is PSG's flirtation with Financial Fair Play - UEFA's rules limiting disproportionately ludicrous spending. For me this is the biggest mistake. With the Brazilian in his prime right now, the value of each successive season will depreciate yearly.
We'll begin with the transfer fee - $276 million. "So they played, and did very well", Zidane continued, knowing he got his tactics and personnel spot on. Another one of Spurs' brilliant bargain buys.
