Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 19/09/2019

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has explained the 3-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday at the Parc des Prince.

Former Real Madrid star Angel di Maria scored a brace for PSG and Thomas Meunier added another one in the dying minute of the match to claim all the three points in their Champions League opener against Los Blancos.

"They were better than us in every department, in the play, in midfield, and the thing that annoys me most is the intensity," Zidane said.

"It's difficult if you don't start strongly.

"They're good at creating chances, that's not what worries me, it's seeing my team without the necessary intensity at the high level of this competition.

"We knew they were going to press us, but we barely made any impact on the game and we created few chances.

"We scored two goals but they were ruled out by VAR."

Real Madrid will take on Sevilla in their next game in the La Liga on Sunday while their next Champions League game is against Club Brugge.
