Real Madrid vs. PSG: a Champions League battle of the giants

Real Madrid vs. PSG: a Champions League battle of the giants
On Valentine's Day, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain enter the Champions League Thunderdome and there is no exiting -- mentally, at least -- until March 6, the return leg for the knockout round of 16.
Few clashes of this magnitude have been as zero-sum at this stage of the campaign, ever.
For the reigning European champions, it's real simple. This is Real Madrid's lifeline. Fail to pull yourself to safety and the season is over on March 7, with the gut-wrenching thought of no more meaningful football for another six months.
As for PSG, in some ways, the impact could be even greater. They'll still have trophies to play for -- and win -- but their battle is as much legal and financial. And there is no telling what damage defeat could bring, but it'd likely go beyond bruised egos.

Lionel Messi was in disbelief after Barcelona were knocked out of the Champions League in 2012.
Alexis Sanchez has revealed Lionel Messi was in tears in the dressing room after Barcelona were knocked out of the Champions League by Chelsea in 2012.

Chelsea had John Terry sent off in the first half but regained the lead in the tie when Ramires chipped Victor Valdes before Messi hit the bar from the spot.

Messi's third son will share the same Chinese name as Cristiano Ronaldo

Messi's third son will share the same Chinese name as Cristiano Ronaldo
The announcement of the name of Lionel Messi's third child has caused a stir with Chinese supporters of the Barcelona ace, who have been left dumbfounded as the transliteration of the name in Mandarin is said to be the same as that of rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
The 30-year-old, who confirmed the new arrival last October, took to Instagram on Wednesday to reveal that he and his wife Antonella Roccuzzo had decided to name their child Ciro.
Coincidentally, following the rules of transliteration, which is often based on the phonetic translation of words, the third child of the Messi family will share the same Mandarin Chinese adaptation of his Real Madrid nemesis.
In Chinese, given the length of the Portuguese international's name, which would read as 'Kelisidiyanuo Luonaerduo' in Mandarin, efforts in the past have been made to shorten the adaption out of convenience with the Los Blancos No. 7 now affectionately known as C-Luo.

Story of the match – Barcelona v Alaves

Barcelona v Alaves – Story of the match
Lionel Messi scored a stunning late free-kick as Barcelona came from behind to beat Alaves and maintain their unbeaten start to LaLiga.
The visitors were defending well after John Guidetti’s fortuitous opener had put them ahead but they could not hang on as Luis Suarez levelled before Messi curled home a set-piece to secure an unconvincing 2-1 win.
As Barcelona’s forwards failed to fire, Alaves threatened so often on the counter-attack and it was no surprise that their goal came from such a move.
Guidetti slipped as he took his shot, which deflected off his standing foot to beat Marc-Andre ter Stegen and stun the Nou Camp.
