On paper there couldn't have been a worse draw for the defending European champions than the one sbobet777 Xabi Alonso pulled out on Monday morning as Real Madrid will face the exciting French giants Paris Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappe and Neymar will play at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but not in the famous white shirt.Many anticipated that both of PSG's star forwards would have been plying their trade in the Spanish capital this season; however it was simply not to be as the French club's incredible wealth gave them a monumental advantage in the summer.Zinedine Zidane will fully understand this is the price of finishing second in your Champions League group, just as it was in 2012/13 when Los Blancos slipped to second and were drawn with Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United in the first knockout round.Both teams have legitimate claims to be potential winners of the competition and whilst it's exciting for such an incredible tie to be taking place so early in the competition, it comes with the tinge of regret that one of the favourites for the tournament will certainly be eliminated.Unai Emery's side found no difficulties whatsoever in their group stage

campaign as the club blitzed the record for goals scored in that stage of the Champions League.The sbobet777 Spanish coach though faces a huge battle in February, not only to overcome the holders of the competition, but knowing that a defeat will almost certainly cost him his job.Domestic success is not high on the priorities list for the French club at this time, the Champions League is what Neymar and Mbappe were signed to deliver and failure at such an early stage would make a mockery of such lavish spending.Real Madrid are fully aware of the qualities of their opponents, they are facing a group who will be extremely motivated to deliver the trophy craved above all others.For Zidane, he will not face a tougher two-legged tie than this, if his team can come through it unscathed then there will be a supreme level of confidence that the team could win an unprecedented third successive continental crown. sbobet777
