Thiago Silva Relishing Ronaldo Test

 

Paris Saint Germain captain Thiago Silva is relishing coming up against Cristiano Ronaldo
as PSG face Real Madrid in a mouth-watering Champions League round of 16 tie next week.
Ronaldo has not been in great form domestically, but was the top scorer in the group phase
of the competition. PSG skipper Silva is relishing the challenge.
However, he does think that Lionel Messi is slightly harder to defend against, “The small
difference is that Messi, with the ball in a one-on- one or a two-on- one, is difficult to stop,"
"With Ronaldo, I am not saying that it is easy, but one player can mark and the other can
monitor -- doing that gives you more security at the back.
"However, Messi and Ronaldo are both players capable of incredible things -- like Neymar. I
believe, though, that it is harder to defend against Messi than it is against Ronaldo."
