Zinedine Zidane's charges currently sit 19 points behind bitter rivals and LaLiga leaders FC Barcelona, while they were also dumped out of the Copa del Rey.

Real's only realistic chance of silverware comes in the form of the Champions League, and Savio, who won the competition three times with Real is backing the club again.

"The worse the situation is, the stronger Real Madrid are," said Savio, according to Marca.

"Real Madrid are always the favourite

"Please, Real Madrid are European champions, twice in a row, if we compare the squads, I think [PSG's] is much better and more complete. Results in the last four years, three titles, show what I mean.

"Yes, Real Madrid are favourites, but you have to always have respect for PSG and remember that in football, the favourites don't always win."
