"We are Real Madrid and we have shown we have a strong squad with lots of experience and we must call upon that".
Real Madrid are a risky animal given they have been distanced in La Liga and have only the Champions League to play for as they chase a fourth trophy in the competition in the space of five seasons.
Ahead of the clash on Wednesday night, there have been many reports that Madrid are after their last-16 opponents record breaking summer signing.
Neymar usually plays on the left, but at Real Madrid that position is occupied by Cristiano Ronaldo - at least initially. "Like us, they have players capable of making a difference at key moments in the game", Madrid defender Raphael Varane said.
He bagged a ideal hat-trick for Real in his last outing and has struck seven times in his last four matches.
Madrid languishes in fourth place and 17 points behind Barcelona in La Liga and is out of the Copa del Rey. This is probably the only big trophy they can hope to win this season- a win that may save the Zinedine Zidane's job as manager. After the debacle of the 6-1 loss to Barcelona last season, this is his last chance to prove he has what it takes to manage a club at this level.
4 - Liverpool were one of four teams to remain unbeaten in this season's group stages, alongside Barcelona, Besiktas and Tottenham. We have many defensive problems this season and it will be doubled against PSG as (Dani) Cravjal will miss the first leg.
As a result, Real Madrid have been paired with PSG.
And ahead of Wednesday's first tie with PSG in Madrid, the Champions League's all-time leading goalscorer said: "We are going to play against a great team with excellent players, which we respect very much".
When it comes to the Champion League, the former Manchester United star seems to have a liking for the tournament as he comes to his side's rescue by finding the net nearly in every big European match.
Marcelo believes Brazil teammate Neymar will one day join Real Madrid. "We'll be very motivated".
"I'm only thinking about the game as it's the only thing we can control so we're focusing on preparing for the game and we'll see what happens".
