Zidane not out for PSG revenge

Zinedine Zidane insists Real Madrid are not out for revenge when they take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Real were hammered 3-0 by PSG at the Parc des Princes on matchday one, and the Parisians have gone on to dominate Group A as they lead it by five points heading into the latest clash between the two European powerhouses.

Zidane's men have responded pretty well and look on course to go through the group as runners-up.

A win against PSG would guarantee their place in the last 16, although they could go through before they kick-off at the Bernabeu, if Bruges fail to beat Galatasaray when the two sides meet at 17:55 GMT.

There has been talk of Real being out for revenge for that defeat in the opening round, but Zidane says that is not the case, and he is just focused on his side continuing their good run of form.

A victory and a good performance in front of the home fans would certainly give them a lift, and prove to the doubters that they are heading in the right direction.

"We aren't looking to get revenge after what happened earlier in the group," Zidane said. "But we want to play a good game of course and maintain our form.

"It's the kind of game where you can confirm you're on a good run. We want to win because we're at home and we want to play good football."

PSG just need a point to ensure they finish top of Group A.
