Real Madrid got an advantage over their opponent, Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League knock out stage battle at Santiago Bernebau.
Having to come from a goal down, Los Blancos end up winning 3-1 thanks to two late goals which will certainly brought nothing but disappointment for the away side as they didn’t really play that bad.
PSG played pretty solid and got themselves in front on 33 minutes through Adrien Rabiots fine finish from inside the penalty area, but that lead didn’t last until half time break as Madrid drew level just before the first 45 minutes through Cristiano Ronaldo’s spot kick.
The match continue to look exciting after the break as both teams created chances after chances, but luck seemingly turned into Madrid’s favor as an unfortunate bounce inside the box was turned into a goal by Ronaldo on 83 minutes.
As PSG tried to get back on level terms, Madrid took advantage with a fast counter attacking play which led into a third goal from Marcelo three minutes after scoring they scored their second.
The away side could’ve made things more tight if they were able to finish couple of late chances they got, particularly from Neymar who failed to finish from inside the penalty area just before the final whistle was blown.
Meanwhile, Liverpool looking set to advance into the last 16 following their big 5-0 away victory over FC Porto on Wednesday.
Sadio Mane was the star in that match as he netted a hat-trick, while the other two goals were scored by Mohamed Salah along with Roberto Firmino.
