PSG lost to another Spanish club last season in the competition after giving away a 4-0 lead aggregate going to the second leg. Many questioned the Manager’s position in the club. Which saw him continue leading the team and signing players like Neymar and Kylian hoping to reach this year’s competition finals. Many believed so after an impressing start to the competition scoring many goals in the competition, the failure of Unai continued again last night when they were knockout by Madrid. The question again is set to be raised. With some names brought in front to be the replacement of the disastrous Emery.

Starting the match with high intensity and pressing – that was the game plan for Unai’ Emery and his men wanting an early goal, with the likes of Angel Di Maria making his start, replacing the injured Neymar Jnr. Unai hoped the Argentinian will bring something but the player showed poor display in final thirds not taking his chances and unable to supply the ball to their number 9 who showed a lot of frustration when not receiving the ball. Mixed emotions around the crowd and frustration on the pitch resulted for Real Madrid to take the lead. From their tallest man who scored in all matches in the champions league making him the leading goal scorer of the competition setting another landmark in European competition, scoring in the second half after it went goalless at the break.

The goal from Ronaldo was the security goal for the Los Blancos ensuring their place in the last 8 and frustration for the Paris side which it saw their midfielder and play-maker Marco Verratti sent off in the 66th minutes after approaching the referee in an ill-discipline manner, which made the situation from bad to worse for the Capital club of France. This left fans wonders if players like Julian Draxler will get to play in this match limiting the options for the team causing a headache for the Manager and his tactics.
