Real Madrid posted a video message from Cristiano Ronaldo on Twitter ahead of Wednesday night's massive Champions League clash against PSG.

Seventeen points behind Barcelona, Los Blancos have given up hope of retaining the La Liga title but do still harbour hopes of a third consecutive Champions League trophy.

Zinedine Zidane's side enjoyed a confidence-boosting 5-2 win over Real Sociedad on Saturday but the main talking point was what happened in the 92nd minute.

"I don’t know why it is [that they whistled Benzema], but the fans can do what they want," said Zidane after the 5-2 win.

“Karim had chances, but for him the important thing is the next game and that his luck will change. He ran a lot... but the fans can do what they want."

At the end of Saturday's convincing win over Real Sociedad, the 30-year-old French striker missed a glorious opportunity to score his first goal since November.

Boos rang out through the Santiago Bernabeu following Benzema's miss - and Ronaldo reacted immediately as the final whistle was blown.

The Portuguese Ballon d'Or winner showed his class by urging them to applaud the out-of-sorts striker.

Ronaldo sends video message to the fans

Real Madrid's star man is clearly desperate to get the fans onside for the Champions League meeting against PSG.

They've been far from their best this season and need a '12th man' more than ever.

"On Wednesday we have a very important match against a great team," said Ronaldo. "What me and the team are asking for is your unconditional support like always and together we will be much stronger. Hala Madrid!"

Well said.

The French giants have never won a Champions League trophy in their history but are the favourites to progress to the quarter-finals regardless.

Perhaps exaggerating somewhat, PSG coach Unai Emery suggested Madrid are still the best club around.

"Right now, Real Madrid are the best team in the world, in terms of the number of trophies they've won and the fact that they have the best players," Emery told a news conference Friday, as per Goal.

"Cristiano Ronaldo is an example. In the biggest games, the best players turn up."

Will the Madrid fans shows the "unconditional support" that Ronaldo craves from them? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
