Real Madrid coach Zidane: Neymar absence changes everything

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane insists they won't underestimate injury-hit Champions League opponents PSG on Tuesday.

PSG will be without the injured Neymar in their lineup and Zidane was asked what his absence means.

"[Neymar's absence] doesn't change anything, yet it changes everything because he is an exceptional player," he said.

"It doesn't change anything because there'll be another player who'll be extra motivated to play well.

"[Angel Di Maria] can play in any position, as he moves well, shoots well and is quick.

"We will try to play our game."
