Portuguese superstar Cristiano Ronaldo admitted that Real Madrid need to be at their best to beat Paris Saint-Germain having geared up for the crunch Champions League with a hat-trick at the weekend against Real Sociedad.

"We have to be very focused and play two fantastic matches to progress in the Champions League.
"We respect PSG very much but we are very united."

"I always strive to play at my best possible level," he intimated."Sometimes things don't go as you'd like. However, experience has taught me that we must continue working hard to achieve our goals."
