Speaking about winning the trophy with the Rouge-et-Bleu, Lionel Messi believed its an achievable task but also admitted its complicated.


“Winning the Champions League is complicated because it is a competition where the best are playing, because any detail, any mistake knock you out of a competition, competing against such great clubs and teams.”

“I think we have the team to try to win it. I think we very excited and we are very eager to achieve it but we have to be calm, because as I say, it is difficult to win the Champions League.

The best team doesn’t always win and you have to be aware of all the details and make a great team, because in the end the strong teams are the ones that achieve their goals and we are in the way and we are looking to make the team even stronger.


Paris Saint-German defeated Real Madrid by a lone goal in the first leg of their round of 16 clash played at the Parc de Princes stadium last week Tuesday.

With the game ended for a goalless draw, kylian Mbappe rose to the occasion scoring a sublime solo effort goal with virtually last kick of the match in the 90+4 minutes to give PSG a slim 1-0 advantage going into the 2nd leg in Madrid.

Earlier in the game Lionel Messi was presented with the chance to open the scoring for PSG from the penalty spot but the Argentine saw his effort saved by Thibaut Courtois.

Any result shot of defeat will send PSG to the quarterfinals which will be a step closer to achieving their dreams while a defeat not more than a goal difference will see the game go into extra time and probably penalty shootouts but a defeat with more than one goal will send them out of the competition.
