Real Madrid Defeat PSG To Reach Champions League Quarter-Finals

Real Madrid players celebrate Carlos Casemiro scoring their side's second goal of the game

European champions Real Madrid moved into the Champions League quarter-finals as they beat Ligue 1 leaders Paris St-Germain at Parc des Princes.


Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice in the first leg at home, which Real won 3-1, and he headed in from Lucas Vazquez‘s cross to extend Real’s lead in France.


PSG had midfielder Marco Verratti sent off for two bookable offences, before Edinson Cavani pulled a goal back.


But Casemiro‘s heavily deflected strike secured an ultimately comprehensive 5-2 aggregate victory for Zinedine Zidane‘s side.


For PSG, 14 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, it is the second successive season where they have gone out at the last-16 phase and it leaves manager Unai Emery‘s future at the club in doubt.


They were without injured forward Neymar and were not helped by Verratti’s needless dismissal in the 66th minute. The Italy international was booked when he fouled Casemiro in the first half and was shown a second yellow card when he sprinted after referee Felix Brych and was cautioned for dissent.


Real are now into the Champions League quarter-finals for an eighth successive season and remain on course for a third title in a row.
