The visit of Paris Saint-Germain promised to be a traumatic experience for Real Madrid, especially given their poor form, however Cristiano Ronaldo has rediscovered his goalscoring form and he has the French club in his sights.Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani arrive in the Spanish capital as the most formidable attacking trio in Europe, yet, with Ronaldo back amongst the goals, Los Blancos carry a serious threat of their own.After a dismal first half of the season domestically, Ronaldo has scored seven league goals since the turn of the year, including a hat-trick in Saturday's 5-2 victory over Real Sociedad.Last season the Portuguese forward was instrumental in the Spanish club's run to the Champions League final.He hasn't been able to rest as much this term, yet it's expected he will need to put in a repeat performance if a weaker Real Madrid are to progress to the same stage this term.His upturn in form has seen the former Manchester United star get back on track with regards to his usually goal tally, after his first half of the season had seen him post his worst return domestically since joining the club in 2009.He is now the fifth highest scorer in LaLiga, with only Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Iago Aspas and Christian Stuani ahead of him.



The Champions League is Ronaldo's favourite competition and he always seems to find the net on the big European nights, so it should come as little surprise that he is the tournament's current top scorer for the 2017/18 edition.PSG will be forced to find a way to nullify him on Wednesday, as it will not be the attacking procession led by Neymar which many expected just a few short weeks ago.Real Madrid's season depends on their performance in the Champions League and history would suggest that Zinedine Zidane's future as coach will be impacted by how the team perform in the knockout phase.There is almost no chance of winning the LaLiga title, even though Los Cules dropped points to Getafe on Sunday, so being eliminated at such an early stage would be unthinkable for the holders.Ronaldo is ready for the French club and he knows he will have to lead the team, especially with Karim Benzema living through such a crisis of confidence in front of goal.His resurgence makes this tie all the more interesting.
