Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane believes their season is recovering as the defending champions cruised into the Champions League quarter-finals.
Second-half goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Casemiro secured a 2-1 win on the night and a 5-2 aggregate victory at PSG on Tuesday.
Real are chasing a third straight Champions League crown and Zidane, under fire with his side 15 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona, called on his side to stick together.
He told the post-match press conference: "We've had difficult moments in La Liga and Copa del Rey, but it's always difficult to maintain the same level while playing every three days.
"You can't always win everything, but we're winning now in La Liga and we have to look ahead to our game with Eibar on Saturday.
"Paris were perhaps not as good, but that's maybe because we played well. After the sending-off and the second goal, it got more difficult for them." sbo222
Gareth Bale came on as a second-half substitute with speculation surrounding his Real future, but Zidane insisted he remains part of his plans.
He added: "I respect all the players, including Gareth Bale. He wasn't a starter in either leg, but he's a very important player who causes lots of trouble to the opposition. We have to stay united, as we were tonight."
PSG are also likely to face punishment from UEFA after the game was briefly stopped because of smoke from the flares of the home fans.
The French giants are yet to win the Champions League and former boss Laurent Blanc was dismissed after guiding them to the quarter-finals in three consecutive seasons. sbo222
