Real Madrid vs PSG (3-1)

Real Madrid showed their dominance in Europe’s elite club competition by beating favorites PSG 3-1 and will be going to Paris with a two goal advantage in hand.

Cristiano Ronaldo crossed another milestone with his brace by becoming the first player in Champions League history to score 100 goals for the same club.

The Portuguese forward scored a late close-range strike after his penalty had cancelled out Adrien Rabiot‘s opener at the end of a thrilling first half.

Marcelo wrapped up the victory after Ronaldo’s tap in with an assist from Marco Asensio. Asensio was the key substitution which changed the outcome of the match, as his shot inspired Ronaldo’s rebound.

Neymar showed some wonderful footwork and threatened the Real defense from time to time. Dani Alves too kept making dangerous crosses but their efforts ended in vain.

Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola did not produce a performance that deserved to concede three goals, making strong saves from Toni Kroos and Benzema, and largely impressing.

Will Neymar and Co. turn it around in Paris? Only time will tell if Neymar can pull off another La Remutanda!!!
