Kylian does, too. It doesn’t bother me and I don’t pay it any attention. I’m not jealous of either.”PSG face Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday in a match that could have a huge impact on the future of Zinedine Zidane.The Madrid head coach is under pressure to deliver a third successive triumph in Europe’s top competition, with his side 19 points behind LaLiga leaders Barcelona and out of the Copa del Rey.Rabiot expects the holders to be fired up for the encounter but considers the tie to be finely balanced.”Madrid will want to save their season,” he said. “They will be really motivated. They have great experience in this competition, which is less so in our case.”In my view, it’s 50-50.”last_img read more
