Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane : “We started very well, but we deserved the win. It was a tough match, they wanted to get through but they were up against a strong team and that perhaps made the difference.
” He told BT Sport

“I must praise the players, they are the ones giving everything on the pitch. This is a tough crowd to come to, but the atmosphere is fantastic. We were focused and deserved to get through.”

PSG boss Unai Emery 
“It’s true that Madrid deserved to go through and in the important moments of the game, they were better.

“They controlled 60% of the game and we didn’t do enough with the 40% we had. Losing to Real Madrid itself isn’t a disappointment, but being knocked out in the last 16 is.

“Perhaps the first half was the key. In the last 20 minutes of the first half we were better. Over there [in Spain] we had the chance, it was 50-50, but we didn’t take advantage of that.”
