Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane: We can handle PSG atmosphere

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says they can handle the atmosphere at Champions League opponents PSG.

PSG's supporters have already made clear that a cauldron of noise will await the defending European champions, there is the intention to make Tuesday's second leg as uncomfortable night as possible for the Spanish giants.

"What we have to do is play our game without thinking about the atmosphere," he explained.

"We're used to difficult atmospheres.

"We'll be very focused and we have the players who know how to be calm."

Toni Kroos and Luka Modric both face races against time to be fit enough to play in Paris and the French coach is still unsure whether or not either will be available.

"I don't know, they haven't trained with us," Zidane admitted. "I can't say anything, what I want is for everyone to travel and train on Monday.

"Then by Tuesday, you will see the team we start with."
