Paris Saint-Germain manager, Laurent Blanc has revealed that the French champion has to stop 3-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo as they tackle Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League.
The Ligue 1 side will play Real Madrid in the 3rd round of matches in the Group A top-of-the-table encounter on Wednesday.
Blanc believes that the only way to stop the Los Blancos all-time goalscorer is limit the number of chances he gets though he considers him “one of two aliens” in football.
Blanc said in a pre-match briefing on Tuesday, “He’s one of the two aliens of planet football. He’s good in every area. We have to make sure he has few touches of the ball. We have to keep an eye on him.
“People know our style of play. We like to have the ball. Real are quite defensive but they are very effective. These are two different philosophies that will now meet.
“If they want to give us the ball, we’ll take it with pleasure. We meet a European giant tomorrow, but it won’t be a decisive match. The decisive matches will come later, I hope.
“PSG are not yet a European giant, but we have the quality and motivation to win,” he added.
