Zidane: Real don't think the PSG match will be easier without Neymar

Though Real Madrid have a LaLiga match against Getafe to negotiate on Saturday, Zinedine Zidane was grilled at his pre-match press conference about Tuesday's Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain.

It's a game where the French side will be without their star man, Neymar, after the Brazilian flew home to have surgery on his foot.

"PSG are a very strong team and the player who will replace Neymar will be good, for sure, so we don't think that without him it will be easier," Zidane said to reporters.

"We feel sorry for him, but what interests us is Saturday's game.

"The first half against Espanyol was very good, the second was not, so we have to perform for a full 90 minutes.

"Players always dream of a matches like PSG, but to prepare for Tuesday, we have to play well against Getafe."

Little by little Real are recovering their injured players.

"The important thing is that Marcelo is already with us," he continued.

"With Kroos and Modric we will see day by day, but what matters is that the players have to be at one hundred percent."
