Being seventeen points behind their arch-rivals Barcelona, Real Madrid have more or less given up on the hopes of keeping possession of the La Liga title, as they now solely focus on snatching their third consecutive Champions League trophy.
Amidst the series of poor performances, the Spanish club has posted a video message from Cristiano Ronaldo on Twitter ahead of Wednesday night’s massive Champions League clash against PSG.
The Real talisman said: “On Wednesday we have a very important match against a great team. What me and the team are asking for is your unconditional support like always and together we will be much stronger. Hala Madrid!”

The Portuguese star has been deprived of quality form this season, and is conspicuously lacking his usual composure in front of goal.
He is now clearly desperate to get the fans onside, trying to acquiring maximum support, as they prepare themselves for squaring off with the Ligue 1 giants in the Round of 16.
In the Galacticos’ previous fixture against Real Sociedad, Karim Benzema missed out on an opportunity to score his first goal since November, despite the team securing a safe 5-2 victory. The 33-year-old portrayed his compassion, as he was seen urging the fans to encourage the fallen striker, posterior to the final whistle.
Nevertheless, the Parisian club has never won a Champions League title in their history. But with their coach not underestimating the Spanish giants, and further taking into account their hunger for the prestigious trophy, Paris Saint-Germain could plausibly advance through to the quarter finals.
