Nurmagomedov is a big football fan and attended Real Madrid's clash with Real Sociedad in February 2018, after which he was given Cristiano Ronaldo's match worn jersey.

And Spanish website Defensa Central claim Perez has been left livid by Zidane's decision to give his players the day off.

These two clubs are trying to recover some of their lustre after disappointing campaigns in Europe last season, but for PSG this result is a measure of revenge for their defeat at the hands of Real in the last 16 the previous year.

And whether Zidane can turn the situation around remains to be seen.

"Clearly they were better than us in every department - in the way they played, in midfield", the Frenchman told a news conference. There are no excuses, we have not played well, but there is still time for many things, to keep working.

Los Blancos didn't have a single shot on target and the Brazilian has discussed where Zinedine Zidane and his players went wrong.

The U.S.A. and Yugoslavia have won five championships, followed by the Soviet Union three and Brazil two titles. Rudy Fernandez took a corner 3 that sailed long by about two feet, landing in the hands of Juancho Hernangomez.

"They're good at creating chances, that's not what worries me, it's seeing my team without the necessary intensity at the high level of this competition".

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel, meanwhile, believes the absences of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe actually helped his side.

When talking to the media after the match, Tuchel stated that the absence of three of his best players might have helped the team as the pressure was less.

"Maybe the pressure was less, because everybody was wondering how we could win without those three players". Neymar was suspended, Cavani (hip) and Mbappe (hamstring) were both injured, and PSG was going to have to rely on either Angel Di Maria, Mauro Icardi or both to carry the load.

Impressed with the showings from Senegal global, Kimpembe has taken time to laud the combative midfielder.
