Madrid’s comeback built on character, grit of Zidane, Ronaldo and Marcelo

MADRID — I have an image in my mind, one that began to take shape in the advanced stages of the second half of this extraordinary match in which Paris Saint-Germain continued their Spanish nightmare. They’ve now lost their past two knockout ties against La Liga’s behemoths on a 9-2 aggregate, despite being in control of both games with a mere handful of minutes left on each occasion. If you throw in the slapping the Parisians took in Munich at the end of their group campaign, roundly thumped 3-1, somebody might want to call Houston and suggest that we have a problem here. Notwithstanding that, my image is of Real Betis, Barcelona, Celta Vigo, Villarreal and Levante fans huddled around their respective television sets giggling in anticipation as the Bernabeu clock ticked p...
