Neymar's goal takes PSG 13 clear at the top

Neymar's goal takes PSG 13 clear at the top

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Saturday's LaLiga match against Real Sociedad, the Real Madrid coach said: "I want him (Isco) to spend his entire career here and that won't change".

With Real 16 points adrift of league leaders Barcelona and out of the Copa del Rey, the Champions League represents their only realistic chance of salvaging silverware from what has been a torrid season so far.

Ronaldo had a hard time earlier in the season with just four goals in his first 14 La Liga games, but the reigning Ballon D'Or holder now has seven strikes in his last four outings in the competition.

His players perhaps had a point to prove after their disastrous title defence suffered another setback last weekend when they conceded a late equaliser to draw 2-2 at Levante.

They blew Real Sociedad apart in the first half at the Santiago Bernabeu, taking the lead inside a minute through Lucas Vazquez and finding themselves four goals ahead by the interval.

- Ronaldo has scored 15 La Liga home goals against Real Sociedad, more than versus any other opponent for Real Madrid.

"I have tremendous respect for Neymar, he's an awesome footballer", he told RMC on Wednesday.




On Madrid's failure to keep a clean sheet, for an eighth straight game, Zidane admitted his team would have to be tighter against PSG on Wednesday given the importance of an away goal in the tie.

Mundo Deportivo understands that Joachim Low has emerged as Real Madrid's top candidate to be the next boss at the Bernabeu.

The La Liga champions have always been out of this season's title race. "I'm happy at Chelsea, and focused on them", he said.

It is well-noted that Catalan giants Barcelona and Spanish super club Real Madrid go toe-to-toe nearly every season for La Liga title, and have generally shared the spoils of the Spanish league between themselves for a long time.

Whether that will stop Isco wanting to move is yet to be seen but it's safe to say a sale will not happen if it's up to Zidane.

Neymar's 19th Ligue 1 goal since joining PSG from Barcelona was a sign of why the French club made him the world's most expensive player, and after being rested for a midweek Coupe de France win at Sochaux, he was twice denied a late second by the woodwork.

According to Spanish outlet AS, journalist Josep Pedrerol believes Zidane is very disappointed in Isco's form this season and given that he let James Rodriguez leave the club because he believed in the Spanish playmaker, he does not feel his faith has been repaid.
