Angel Di Maria piles the pressure on Zinedine Zidane as Real loses at PSG, There was a time when Zinedine Zidane could do no wrong. That time feels an age ago.

Dressed in black and likely boasting a mood to match, Zidane watched on as his Real Madrid side succumbed to a 3-0 defeat at Paris Saint-Germain in its opening Champions League game on Wednesday.

Make no mistake, this was a humiliating result for Real. The fact that Angel Di Maria, a former Real player, scored twice will only rub salt into Madrid’s wounds.
Even if one was to discount the three goals conceded, the fact Real failed to muster a single shot on target, the first time it has failed to so in 167 Champions League games, may gave an indication of the paucity of the display by a team that has won the European Cup a record 13 times.
By the time Thomas Meunier, the PSG full-back, added PSG’s third in the 91st minute, the game was already over.

“We didn’t really get properly into the game at any stage,” Zidane told reporters after the game.
“We normally create lots of chances and though we had two ruled out today there was far, far, too little else. When we win, we win together, when we lose it’s everyone’s fault.”
