The French side that shipped eight against PSG just over a month ago, appeared to take Rabiot's comments much better than his trio of teammates probably will.
Adrien Rabiot opened the scoring for the visitors but the holders staged a dramatic comeback as Ronaldo equalised on the stroke of half-time from the penalty spot, before the Portugal worldwide put Real ahead seven minutes from time.
"Against Real Madrid, he took a yellow in the first half and could have been sent off in the second".
PSG are facing a huge battle to advance to the Champions League quarter-finals after their first-leg loss against the twice-defending champions.
The penalty was awarded after Toni Kroos was fouled inside the PSG box and Ronaldo converted for his 100th Champions League goal for Real Madrid since he joined them in 2009. We played 90 stunning minutes against a top rival.
"Today things worked out for me, scoring two goals and helping the team win, but we know the tie is not finished yet".
Since arriving in France, Neymar has been nothing but brilliant and the Brazilian has already scored 28 goals and provided 17 assists.
Neymar, in Barcelona's ranks then, could not make the difference for PSG, who now have a huge job on their hands to turn the tie around.
"I think we sat back a bit more in the second half, but we played better, had more chances and scored two more goals".
101 - Ronaldo's 101 tally sees him four clear of Lionel Messi (97), while their nearest rival for Champions League goals for a single club is former Madrid icon Raul with 66.
PSG did in fact play very well and were unlucky to lose the match.
He, however, reverted to nearly the same line-up that outclassed Juventus to win last year's final, leaving Gareth Bale out for Isco.
