David Beckham conceded Real Madrid face a tough task against in-form Paris Saint-Germain but he believes the blockbuster Champions League last-16 tie is the Spanish team's time to shine.

Statistically speaking, Les Parisiens' No. 10 is shaping up nicely.

They will have to make do without Neymar, who has been left at home to rest ahead of the first leg against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu next week and after his lavish 26th birthday celebrations last weekend. Both Messi and Ronaldo have shared the greatest of rivalries in the world of football.

By the end of this year, the Brazilian could have celebrated three major successes in his career with further Champions League glory, a World Cup triumph and the individual recognition that he craves with the Ballon d'Or - just one year on from his world record €222 million move from Camp Nou.


While acknowledging the challenge of PSG, former winger Beckham said via Marca: "It is going to be hard with PSG on top form at the moment".

Most UEFA club competition goals ✅.

"It is very hard to choose as I like both clubs and they have a lot of passion", the Englishman added.
